Margin Trading

How do you calculate the interest on my margin loan?

There are two methods:

  • First Method: an annual interest rate of 4% above the official lending and discount rate announced by the Central Bank of Egypt. Interest is calculated daily and charged monthly on the used portion of the loan.
  • Second Method: A rate of 1.65% of the highest amount of loan used and calculated at the end of each month.
    Note: If you do not use your margin lending facility, Arabeya online will not deduct any interest. The same applies if a client uses the facility for same day trading.
    i.e. interest will not be deducted.
