Margin Interest: 7.45% APR
Margin account holders have the ability to borrow money at the margin interest rate above. Borrowing money on margin lets you leverage securities you already own to purchase additional securities. Accounts are not charged for the use of margin when borrowing money throughout the day. The margin interest rate is only charged when you borrow money to hold securities overnight. Therefore, if the market value of securities in your account exceeds your account value overnight, you are using margin.
Credit Interest: 0% APR
Clients are paid interest each month on any free cash that remains in their cash account.
