Lending margin interest rate

Recently, securities companies’ margin interest rates are around 13-14%/year, and differences between companies’ interest rate are trivial. Generally, the investor should ensure that their portfolio doesn’t include investments with high margin interest situations.

But if you are used to trading stock with high leverage, we also recommend well-known companies because:

  • Small companies have a weak financial health. When bull markets happen, investors often increase their margin leverage. You may suffer changes in margin services to limit pressure on the margin fund’s depletion. Perhaps this could cause your portfolio to go into a margin call situation.
  • Larger companies have more stable margin services because of stronger financial health. They also have the more extensive list of lending margin tickers.
