2 Ledger (Debit Balance) = the amount you borrowed to buy additional unit trusts

Where MR is ≥ 140% the account is deemed to be within a healthy range.

Where MR is 130% ≤ MR < 140%, client is not permitted to buy any additional Unit Trust using leverage even if he has available credit limit; client may sell his existing holdings to reduce his Debit Balance.


Margin Calls:

120% ≤ MR < 130% : Client is required to satisfy margin call within 3 market days including the date of notice to restore the MR to at least 130%.

MR < 120% : Client is required to satisfy force-selling call on the same day before 3:00 pm to restore the MR to at least 130%.
