How can I track my M1 Margin Loan usage?

You can easily keep track of your M1 Margin Loan balance from the Borrow Tab as shown below.

Your credit limit shows you how much of your margin line of credit you have used and the credit status in the dashboard will show you how much your account equity needs to drop to trigger a maintenance margin call from M1.

Brokerage accounts on the M1 platform are either fully disclosed to APEX Clearing or cleared through M1 Finance LLC. Please look at your account statement to determine how your account is cleared.

All investing involves risk, including the risk of losing the money you invest. Past performance does not guarantee future performance. Using margin can add to these risks. Users utilizing APEX cleared margin accounts should review the APEX margin account risk disclosure before borrowing. Users utilizing M1 cleared margin accounts should review the M1 margin account risk disclosure before borrowing. M1 Margin Loans are available on margin accounts with at least $2,000 invested per account. Not available for Retirement or Custodial accounts. Margin rates may vary.

Brokerage products and services are offered by M1 Finance LLC, Member FINRA / SIPC, and a wholly owned subsidiary of M1 Holdings, Inc.

All examples above are for informational purposes and should not be considered an offer to buy or sell certain securities. M1 does not provide investment advice.
