Margin Level Calculation
((Account Balance + Unrealized P&L)/Margin requirement on net open position) x 100 = Margin Level

Example: Trader X has a 10,000 USD balance with an unrealized P&L of +1,000 USD. The open positions include long 300,000 USDCHF and short 200,000 USDCHF. Net open position is 100,000 USDCHF

((10,000 USD + 1,000 USD)/1000 USD) x 100 = 1100% Margin Level

Stop Out Level
Largest losing positions are automatically realized when Margin Level < 30%
