How much do I need in my account for margin?

You need to maintain at least $2,000 (or USD equivalent) value in your account at all times for a Reg T margin account. For a Portfolio Margin account, you need to maintain at least $110,000 (or USD equivalent) value in your account at all times. ToledoTrade does not have a minimum to open an account, but if you want a Reg T margin account or Portfolio Margin account then the $2,000 or $110,000 account value minimum will apply.
