How to calculate the amount of margin for a trade?

The amount of margin is equal to the trade volume divided by the leverage. The trade volume is equal to 10000 US Dollars multiplied by the amount of lots and by the exchange rate of a base currency in a pair to the USD. The base currency is the first in a currency pair. For example, in the EUR/USD currency pair the base currency is EUR (thereafter, the exchange rate of a trade to the US Dollar is EURUSD), in USDCAD – is USD (the exchange rate of a trade to the US Dollar is equal to 1, because USD/USD = 1), in GBPJPY – the base currency is GBP (the exchange rate of a trade to the US Dollar is equal to the GBP/USD exchange rate or to the exchange rate of GBPUSD). So when the GBPUSD exchange rate equals 1.4956 in a 2 lot trade with the 1:100 leverage, the margin will be 10000 * 2 * GBPUSD/100 = 299.12 USD. In a 3.4 lots trade on USDJPY with the 1:1000 leverage, the margin is equal to 10000 * 3.5 * 1/1000 = 35 USD.
