In reply to comment: maybe all these ridiculous (see in situ)

it doesn't do anything

it just makes the market fluctuate less. say silver's static logical price is "50", it would just fluctuate between say 48 and 52 instead of 46 and 54

i suspect margin requirements may have to do with lousy traders like pretcher making bad bets plus some people's tendency to keep a losing position.. lenders want to lower their risk and hence the hiking of margin.. who knows

it doesn't do silver any plus or negative.
