How it works

Using cash deposit as collateral (3.5x leverage)

For example, on Day 1 you deposit cash of $25,000 as collateral and purchase only $75,000 value of shares. * Assumed the shares purchased are valued at 100%.

Day 1
Cash Initial Financing
S$25,000 S$75,000
Total Collateral =[S$25,000 + S$75,000 - S$25,000]
=S$75,000
Total Loan =S$75,000 - S$25,000
=S$50,000
Margin% =Total Collateral/Total Loan
=S$(75,000/50,000)
=150%

Subsequently on Day 2:
Based on 3.5x leverage, you can buy up till $87,500 ($25,000 x 3.5) worth of shares. Therefore, in order to maintain a minimum Margin Maintenance of 140%, client can only buy up till $12,500 (S$87,500 – S$75,000) worth of shares subsequently.

Day 2
Cash Subsequent Financing
S$25,000 S$75,000 + S$12,500
Total Collateral =S$75,000 + S$12,500
=S$87,500
Total Loan =S$50,000 + S$12,500
=S$62,500
Margin% =Total Collateral/Total Loan
=S$(87,500/62,500)
=140%
Your margin percentage must be maintained ≥140%

Using shares as collateral (2.5x leverage)

For example, on Day 1 you place shares collateral with market value of $25,000 and bought S$50,000 value of shares. * Assumed the shares purchased are valued at 100%.

Day 1
Shares Initial Financing
S$25,000 S$50,000
Total Collateral =S$25,000 + S$50,000
=S$75,000
Total Loan =S$50,000
Margin% =Total Collateral/Total Loan
=S$(75,000/50,000)
=150%

Subsequently on Day 2:
Based on 2.5x leverage, you can buy up till $62,500 ($25,000 x 2.5) worth of shares. Therefore, in order to maintain a minimum Margin Maintenance of 140%, client can only buy up till $12,500 (S$62,500 – S$50,000) worth of shares subsequently.

Day 2
Share Subsequent Financing
S$25,000 S$50,000 + S$12,500
Total Collateral =S$75,000 + S$12,500
=S$87,500
Total Loan =S$62,500
Margin% =Total Collateral/Total Loan
=S$(87,500/62,500)
=140%
Your margin percentage must be maintained ≥140%
