Margin

Definition: The use of borrowed money from a brokerage house to purchase securities.  Referred to as "buying on margin."

TeenAnalyst Advice: Most margin accounts give an investor a 50% margin.  What that means is that they can buy $20,000 worth of stock for only $10,000 of their own money.  They're charged an interest on the money they borrow.

This increases the risk an investor faces when investing.  If the stock drops a certain percentage amount, you'll get a "margin call" from the broker.  They will either make you put more money in your account or entirely liquidate your position.

Most margin accounts require you to have a minimum of $10,000.
