Calculating Forex Margin Requirements with Flexible Leverage

Assume you open Position #1 Buy 1 lots GBPUSD 1.40000 for a EasyPro USD Denominated Account.
Since the Lot of #1 is not above 2, the Leverage offered is 1:1000.
Required Margin = Trade Size * Account Currency Exchange Rate (Price)/ Leverage
Margin is: 1(lot)*100000(Contract)*1.40000(Price)/ 1000(Leverage)= 140 USD.

You open position # 2 Buy 2 lots GBPUSD 1.41000.
The aggregate lot of position#1 and position #2 is: 1+2=3 lot
In this case, the aggregate lot of open positions is above 2, but under 20.
Thus, a leverage of 1:1000 is provided for the first 2 lot, and a leverage of 1:500 for the remaining 1 lot.
Margin is: 2(lot)*100000(Contract)*1.41000(Price)/1000(Leverage)+1(lot)*100000(Contract)*1.41000(Price)/500(Leverage)=423 USD

Assume you open Position #3 Buy 20 lots GBPUSD 1.44000.
The aggregate notional value of all three positions is 1+2+20 =23 lot
Thus, a leverage of 1:1000 is provided for the first 2 lot, a leverage of 1:500 for the next 18 lots, a leverage 1:200 for the remaining amount.
Margin is: 2(lot)*100000(Contract)*1.44000(Price)/1000(Leverage)+18(lot)*100000(Contract)*1.44000(Price)/500(Leverage)+3(lot)*100000(Contract)*1.44000(Price)/200(Leverage)=5472USD.

Let's suppose you close position #4 10 lots GBPUSD 1.42000,
The aggregate notional value of all four positions is (taking into account the third position having been closed): 23 - 10 = 13 lot
When Position was closed, the total lots also decreases which leads to a decrease in the margin requirements.
Margin is: 2(lot)*100000(Contract)*1.42000(Price)/1000(Leverage)+11(lot)*10000(Contract)*1.42000(Price)/500(Leverage)=3124USD.
