Margin

# Account Risk

Your Account Risk is a measurement of how close you are to getting liquidated. It's a function of your Margin Fraction and Maintenance Margin Fraction. The higher your Account Risk, the closer you are to liquidation. Make sure your account risk never reaches 100!

$Account Risk = |\frac{\log{min(1, MF)}}{\log{MMF} * 100}|$

Warning!

The account risk formula linearizes the relationship between the Margin Fraction and the Maintenance Margin Fraction. This equation serves mostly a front-end purpose. If you plan on doing your own risk calculations, it is probably easier to just compare the MF and MMF directly, rather than the Account Risk.
