Margin Trading

LOFC margin rates are among the most competitive in the industry where rate you pay depends on your outstanding margin balance. Trading on margin allows you to leverage securities you already own to purchase additional securities, sell securities short, protect your account from overdraft, or access a convenient line of credit. 

  • Convenience
    Borrow for any purpose, at any time. Once you have been approved for margin borrowing, there are no additional forms to complete, application fees to pay, or loan officers to consult.
  • Repayment flexibility
    There is no set repayment schedule as long as you maintain the required level of equity in your account. Interest charges on outstanding balances are posted to your account monthly. Any cash and dividend income  received will be automatically applied to your margin balance.
  • Opportunity to leverage assets
    Margin borrowing lets you leverage securities you already own to purchase additional securities. This gives you the opportunity to amplify returns, but it can also increase risk.  
  • Know the requirements
    If the market value of the securities in your margin account declines, you may be required to deposit more money or securities in order to maintain your line of credit. If you are unable to do so, LOFC may be required to sell all or a portion of your pledged assets.
