Free Margin

Called also Effective Margin, which is equal Equity + Margin Req.(Minus value indicates possible danger and closeness to Liquidation). It means how many lots of a certain currency can client buy with the money which he actually has

Margin Level This equal to (Equity/Margin Req.) * 100% (the bigger number, the better), it is the most important value that both the client and the market maker should keep on watching, because, depending on its value, it can be decided how many lots the client can buy with the money left with him/her, and if the account is close to Liquidation point.
