Margin Zones

This indicator allows you to automatically calculate and visualize margin zones to the specified parameters.

Type of indicator on the chart:

Calculation:

Margin Zone Level = Margin / Price Tick.

For example, take the euro futures, the ticker 6E.

Margin = $ 2300

Tick price = $ 6.25

Marginal zone level = 2300 / 6.25 = 368 ticks. This means that the margin zone will be built at a distance of 368 ticks from the initial price. The height of the marginal zone is 10% of this distance, that is, 36 ticks.

Margin values and tick price for the instrument can be viewed on the exchange, in our case it is CME: https://www.cmegroup.com/
