Margin Trading

With a SogoTrade margin account, you can borrow money to buy marginable securities, giving you up to twice the buying power of a traditional cash account.

Open New Margin Account

The securities held in your account are collateral for the loan, and you pay interest on the money you borrow. Margin can help your investment strategy as you gain access to more investment capital. However, there are some circumstances where a brokerage firm can force the sale of securities or other assets in your account(s). A margin account comes with risk, so read the disclosures and understand how margin trading works before you begin.
