Margin Requirements

In MT4, Index CFDs offered by Pepperstone are traded with a 0.5% to 1% margin requirement – meaning the margin required is 0.5 to 1% of the notional value of the contract. In cTrader, the maximum leverage offered on CFDs will be 100:1 or 200:1, based on the contract you are trading.

Shown below are the margin requirements for MT4 and the maximum leverage settings for cTrader:
