How long do I have to act on a maintenance call?

M1 gives you 3 business days to meet a maintenance margin call requirement. If you do not bring back your account equity to the minimum maintenance requirement within this time, M1 may be forced to liquidate your securities to meet the maintenance call. Additionally, if it is determined that your positions pose excessive risk, M1 may sell securities before then.
