Use stocks as a collateral for margin trading

DNB Trade allows a percentage of the collateral invested in certain stocks to be used for margin trading activities

The collateral value of a stock position depends on the rating of the individual stock - please see conversion table below.

Collateral value of stock position
2 50%
3 25%
4 0%
5 0%

Example: 25% of the value of a position in a Stock with Rating 3 can be used as collateral (instead of cash) to trade margin products such as Forex, CFDs, Futures and Options.

Please note that DNB Bankas reserves the right to decrease or remove the use of Stock investment as collateral for large position sizes, or stock portfolios considered to be of very high risk.

Stocks placed as collateral for margin trading can not be used to cover the realized or unrealized loss.

For a complete list of available stocks, ratings and collateral values, go to DNB TraderGO > Account > Trading Conditions > Product > Stocks/ETF.

Margin requirements and Rating groups for stock and ETF CFDs

All  tradable CFDs are categorized in 5 different margin groups. Which margin group a CFD falls into depends on the several factors of the underlying instrument: Market Capitalisation (Large, Mid or Small), Volatility (Low, Moderate, High or Extreme), Credit Rating (Excellent, Good, Regular or Poor), Gap tendency (Negligible, Marginal, Critical or Catastrophic) and  Liquidity (High, Medium or Low).
