    Hi everyone, I'm recently exposed to forex and trying to learn all the basic trading options. So far so good but no matter how I still cannot understand the margin thingy . Currently having a demo acount . They claim to have 1% margin and can trade with at minimum as low as the base currency. They also claim that there's no minimum account size. I had try to find explaination on the net for margin calcuation but their explaination is way too hard for me to understand.

    Anyone cares to use simple words and explain to me about margins? Also another question from me is does the amount I deposited in my account affects the margin I can trade? If so how does it affected? Thanks to anyone who helps me :)
