Required Maintenance Call (RM Call)
Required Maintenance Call (RM Call)

A required maintenance (RM) call occurs when an account's margin equity drops below the margin maintenance requirement (25%-100% of the market value or higher depending on stocks' volatility). If the call is not met before the due date, we will liquidate enough holdings to satisfy the call. 

For applying for margin you should have a clear understanding of the rules and potential risks associated with margin, such as the pattern day trading rule, day-trading buying power versus overnight buying power, and margin calls. Margin trading increases the risk of loss and includes the possibility of a forced sale if account equity drops below required levels.
