Margin Interest Rates:

Whether used to buy additional securities or take out a loan, if a debit balance is carried in a margin account, interest will be charged on a monthly basis. The annual interest rate to be charged is based upon the official Broker Call Rate*, and it will vary for each client according to his/her average debit balance for the month. (See table below for tiers).
*As of October 2018, the broker call rate is 4%. This rate is published in financial newspapers.
