What is Margin?

Trading in CFDs requires the holder to maintain a certain amount of margin to fund the position in the underlying product.

A key advantage of not having to put up as collateral the full notional value is that a given quantity of capital can control a much larger position than having to pay the full purchase price of the underlying share.
