What is the foreign exchange margin? In the foreign exchange margin transaction, the trader will provide a certain amount of credit to invest in the customer. If the customer wants to buy a 100,000 Euro, he can only make a deposit with a deposit of 10,000 Euro. Of course, the customer is willing to invest more money is no problem.
