Margin trading
Margin trading makes it easier for traders to enter into trading opportunities as you don't have to worry about spending a lot of cash to acquire an asset.

Margin is the interest owed on loans between you and your broker in relation to the assets of your portfolio. For example, if you short sell shares, you must first borrow it on margin and then sell it to the buyer. Or, if you buy on margin, you will be offered the ability to leverage your money to buy more shares than the cash you spend.

For example, with a margin of 10%, you can buy up to $ 1,000 worth of shares with only $ 100 subtracting. You are given an additional $ 900 in the form of a marginal loan, on which you will have to pay interest. If you have a margin account, it is important that you understand how this margin interest is calculated and be able to calculate it yourself manually when needed. It is just as important as the interest on your savings account.

Before making a calculation, you must first know the margin interest rate your broker charges for borrowing money. The mediator should be able to answer this question. Alternatively, the company's website may be a valuable source for this information, as well as account confirmation and / or monthly and quarterly account statements.

Usually the broker will list their margin rates alongside other disclosures of fees and costs. Often times, the margin interest rate depends on the number of assets you have with your broker, the more money you have with them, the lower the margin interest you are responsible for paying.

Margin interest calculation
Once you know the margin interest rate being charged, grab a pencil, piece of paper, and calculator and you'll be ready to find out the total cost of the margin interest payable. Here's a hypothetical example:

Let's say you want to borrow $ 30,000 to buy a stock that you intend to hold for 10 days where the interest margin is 6% per annum.

In order to calculate the cost of borrowing, first, take the amount of money borrowed and multiply it by the rate charged:

$ 30,000 x .06 (6%) = $ 1,800
Then take the resulting number and divide it by the number of days of the year. Typically, the brokerage industry uses 360 days, not the anticipated 365 days.

$ 1,800 / $ 360 = 5
Next, multiply that number by the total number of days you've borrowed, or expect to borrow money on margin:

5 x 10 = $ 50
Using this example, it would cost you $ 50 in margin interest to borrow $ 30,000 for 10 days.

While margin can be used to amplify profits in the event that the stock rises and a leveraged purchase is made, losses can also be amplified if the price of your investment falls, resulting in a margin call, or the need to add more cash to your account to cover those paper losses.

Remember that whether you win or lose on a trade, you still owe the same margin interest that was charged in the original transaction.

The bottom line
Margin trading is a risky business, but it can be profitable if managed properly and, most importantly, if the trader does not get over himself. It also makes accessing specific asset values easier as the trader does not need to pay the total cost of the asset when he sees an interesting trading opportunity. When entering into a margin trade, it is important to calculate the cost of borrowing in order to determine the true cost of the deal, which will accurately indicate profit or loss.

Bonjour. Et bien voici mon problème: lorsque je navigue sur mon site "" avec Google Chrome et parfois j'obtiens toujours ce message d'erreur "ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED". Le problème se produit également avec d'autres navigateurs tels que Firefox. Cela est-il causé par des logiciels malveillants ou des paramètres de navigateur? J'ai besoin de ton aide!

Si vous pouvez même visiter mon site, j'aimerais savoir si le problème est également visible sur votre navigateur.

Merci d'avance.

I read the very short Terms of Service and judging by this line

(which derivative is misspelled btw)

This software is not open-source? Correct?

Is there possibility to change all links and protocol to https?

I have a lot of mixed content And I do not want change manually all the files

Someone wrote, this would make it

 Force HTTPS
   RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
   RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]

but it provides redirect loop.

Is there somewhere in options - constant to change to achieve change to SSL?

I see that the post_created field is an INT

Is the value a standard representation of a UNIX timestamp

e.g. 07/14/2020 @ 5:36pm (UTC) = 1594748168

Enquiring because importing some posts and want to set the post date to the original one

Hello, I am trying to install the forum over https, but I don't get past step 2. I use https standard and the step 3 is being stopped because of the XMLHttpRequest cannot load due to access control checks. I am getting frustrated by this big time.

additional I get this:
Fatal error: Uncaught PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1698] Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' in public_html/forum/sys/vendor/illuminate/database/Illuminate/Database/Connectors/Connector.php:47 Stack trace: #0 public_html/forum/sys/vendor/illuminate/database/Illuminate/Database/Connectors/Connector.php(47): PDO->__construct('mysql:host=loca...', 'root', 'root', Array) #1 public_html/forum/sys/vendor/illuminate/database/Illuminate/Database/Connectors/MySqlConnector.php(20): Illuminate\Database\Connectors\Connector->createConnection('mysql:host=loca...', Array, Array) #2 public_html/forum/sys/vendor/illuminate/database/Illuminate/Database/Connectors/ConnectionFactory.php(59): Illuminate\Database\Connectors\MySqlConnector->connect(Array) #3 public_html/forum/sys/vendor/illuminate/database/Illuminate/Database/Connectors/ConnectionFactory.php(47): Illuminate\Database\Connectors\ConnectionFactory->createSingleConnection(Array) #4 /U in public_html/forum/sys/vendor/illuminate/database/Illuminate/Database/Connectors/Connector.php on line 47

it seems it does not take the give login name and password set in step 2

I'm just exploring Codoforum with school use in mind. I like the clean UI, but I haven't found messaging or any indication really that CF has been adapted for school use. Does anyone know about this?

Thank you in advance,

Hello, I installed codoforum on localhost. But even though I set htaccess, sef url doesn't work. And it is constantly moving like this: index.php?u=. Is there a way to fix this?

Note: Mod_rewrite is enabled.

Thank you.

I'm having issues with the Mail Notify plugin and the mail queue.

I have a user who's been getting the same email repeatedly.

I tracked down the issue to sys/CODOF/Forum/Notication/MailQueue.php on line 43:

$qry = 'DELETE FROM ' . PREFIX . 'codo_mail_queue WHERE id IN (' . $_ids . ')';

I believe the PREFIX or the codo_ should be there, but not both.

I also seem to be having an issue where none of my users are getting notified of posts, but I need to look into my mail logs to track that one down.

Anyone who has the "users" role is not able to see anything including the homepage. It will just auto-redirect them to there own profile. If they try to make a new topic it says the page is not found. The "Users" role permissions is as follows.

If I make a new role and have it copy permissions for "Users" and apply it to a test account, it will allow the test account to view categories and see the make a post. If I just have it set to the "Users" role it can't. I tried setting the user's role to nothing, saving, then setting it back to no change.

Anyone have had this issue and know a fix?
