Interest rates charged on margin loan balances


Compare our margin rates to other brokers. TC2000 Brokerage offers some of the most competitive rates available. We use a blended rate based on the size of your balance. To calculate the blended rate, the first $100,000 is charged at the tier I rate, the next $900,000 at the tier II rate, etc. TC2000 Brokerage accrues interest on a daily basis and posts the actual interest monthly on the 3rd business day of the following month. The tiers which interest is based upon may change from time-to-time without prior notification to customers. Such adjustments are done periodically to adjust for changes in currency rates.

Margin Rates
Tier Balance Interest Rate
Tier I $0 to $100,000 3.16%
Tier II $100,001 to $1,000,000 2.66%
Tier III >$1,000,001 2.16%

4-1 Intraday Margin Ratio

A Reg. T account holding $10,000 in cash may purchase and hold on an intra-day basis $40,000 in securities given the default intra-day maintenance margin requirement of 25%, which translates to a buying power of 4:1. Some equities have higher margin requirements or are not marginable at all.

2-1 Overnight Margin Ratio

A Reg. T account holding $10,000 in cash may purchase and hold overnight $20,000 in securities as Reg. T imposes an initial margin requirement of 50%, which translates to a buying power of 2:1. Some equities have higher margin requirements or are not marginable at all.


Margin accounts must maintain a minimum balance of $2000

Minimum requirements to open an account


New accounts usually take 1-3 days to approve. Once approved, you have 60 days to fund the account with a minimum initial deposit of $2500. One of the questions in the new-account application will ask how many years you have been trading and how many trades you have made or expect to make per year. The #years multiplied by the #trades must be greater than 100. Your answer can include both real trades and simulated practice trades. TC2000 has a great paper trading simulator to get you comfortable.
