When you, as an investor, trade securities using a combination of your own funds and money borrowed from Upstox, it is called buying on margin. Your equity in the investment is equal to the market value of the securities, minus the amount of the borrowed funds from Upstox. A margin call is triggered when your equity, as a percentage of the total market value of securities, falls below a certain percentage requirement, called the maintenance margin.
