    Ok, this margin maintenance is really confusing to me. I will make this example simple. If I have $2000 in my account and I want to short 200 shares at $2 per share, is there a way to tell the price per share ut has to go till you get a margin call? The Maintenance margin is 100% and 2.50 per share.
