No. You get a facility limit of RM100,000. Your trading limit will depend on the cash and shares pledged as collateral subjected to margin ratio

Facility consists of a loan made available to you as per the terms under the RakuMargin agreement.

Facility limit means the amount that we are prepared to lend you when you trade via your RakuMargin account.

Generally, your trading limit is determined based on the pledged cash and shares. They will each be assigned a multiplier.

For example,

  • RM10,000 (Cash deposit) : Trading limit of RM22,500 (x2.25 cash)
  • RM10,000 (shares) : Trading limit of RM12,500 (x1.25 pledged shares)

Note: Example above is based assumption you do not have outstanding balance in RakuMargin account.

If you have outstanding balance in your RakuMargin account, the formula is as follows. Either option A or B can be adopted. Whichever is lower will be adopted as the margin trading limit.


Option A: (Share Collateral Value + Cash) – Gross Outstanding x MOF


                                                     (MOF –100%)

Option B: Margin Facility Limit – Gross Outstanding Balance

A percentage of the collateral value pledged to secure the loan.

For example, Raku Margin’s MOF requires 180% (RM18,000/RM10,000) where you need total of RM18,000 of collateral to secure the outstanding loan of RM10,000.
