75% of the value of a position in a Stock or ETF with Rating 1 can be used as collateral (instead of cash) to trade margin products such as Forex, CFDs, Futures and Options. Please note that Saxo Bank reserves the right to decrease or remove the use of Stock or ETF investment as collateral for large position sizes, or stock portfolios considered to be of very high risk.
Think outside the box
Even if you have a fully invested long only equities portfolio, you now have access to funds to open additional positions. It might be cheaper for you to hedge yourself with a short CFD position then to sell out of a long equities position. There are many options available and you do not necessarily have to gear yourself and take on more risk than you can stomach.
