Margin call is the broker's instruction to the trader to add more funds to his account in order to maintain the required margin for the trade or take the risk of getting all the open positions closed out in order to save broker's capital used for leveraging the trade. Investors receive the margin call from the broker when one or more of his securities he bought decreased in value beyond a certain level. Then the investor either has to deposit more amounts or sell off his assets.

But I want to know what margin call level is?
Why different account type has got different margin call level? Is it better that our account has a higher level or lower? Would you please help me? Thanks.

All I know about margin call is that your fund in trading account is not sufficient because of negative amount on open position.
Just watch your open position and free margin left if you are losing much.
The higher margin level the stronger your open position is.

I know that each broker's margin call has a different level of 10% 40% and there are also 30%, so each broker has their own policy.

that is different, in my opinion it is not margin but different, leverage, if our capital is to take a large leverage, if the cal margin is an MC when we are wrong in the transaction until our capital is depleted, and we as traders never let our account mc, it's wise to use stop loss

this is the thing every trader in the world wants to avoid. no one wants to experience big losses to experience a margin call. I am sure that by using a good trading plan and money management you will avoid that

emotions must be controlled because they are very detrimental.

a margin call means going bankrupt, or our money runs out because it is no longer strong enough to withstand the floating minus that occurs, so to avoid a margin call we must use good money management

If the MC problem is not resolved properly, you will experience a continuous MC, and even if you are frustrating with trading, you will experience capital loss. I know the mistake that makes you experience MC. That way, we can be a profitable trader.

margin call is a condition where the entry position that we do will be automatically closed because our money is no longer sufficient or unable to hold the floating minus

MC can happen to anyone, especially for people who are just starting to trade forex, therefore, as much as possible, don't let us MC if you lose, it's okay

if we don't want to get a margin call on our trading then we must be willing to limit losses always by using good and detailed money management

Margin Call is a condition where floating minus that we experience can not be detained by the capital we have, so the order will occur automatically from the broker
