I have a portfolio margin account. I'm not sure how they calculate it. It's best to ask your broker because it may vary from broker to broker.

Thank u for your fast answer.

Yes i know it may vary and i have vague idea how they calculate it. I dont worry how broker calculate it coz it is what is it but what bothers me is the fact that the initial margin can be changed 2-4 times during the time of the trade.

i asked my broker but they not give me good enough answer and they say that exact formulas are secret ......
