Margin Debt

Margin Debt Definition

Margin Debt refers to a debit in an account that is owed to the broker. The debit is secured with stocks and bonds authorized to be used as collateral. The difference between the collateral and the amount borrowed  represents margin debt. Margin debt must remain below 50 percent of the  market value of the underlying securities and its amount changes daily as the value of the securities changes.
