maintenance performance bond

Definition

Forex

  • A set amount of cash or equity generally less than an initial performance bond that must be kept on deposit at all times in a customer account. If the equity in a forex or futures position drops below the maintenance performance bond level, a performance bond call is initiated until the customer restores the equity in the account to the maintenance level.
