Account Risk Limits
For each account on the City Platform, there are four available risk controls. These are set under the 'Risk Limits' tab on an individual account view.
|Trading Enabled||Yes||For each account, trading can be enabled or disabled. If an account is disabled, the system will automatically cancel in working orders.|
|Enforce Margin Limits||Yes||Margin enforcement can be enabled or disabled for each account. If margin limits are enabled, the system will enforce pre-trade margin checks based on OptionsCity's portfolio margining.|
|Buying Power Margin %||Yes||If margin enforcement is enabled, this field allows administrators to increase or decrease the enforced margin. For example, if this is set to 120%, an account will be allowed to exceed the standard, exchange defined margin by 20% before the system starts rejecting trades.|
|Net Position Limit||No||The net position limit sets the maximum number of contracts, across all products, that an account can have in its position.|
