Can I lose more than I invest in Forex?
If you don’t use leverage you can’t lose more than you invested because you trade on your own money.

If you don’t comply with this (meaning you don’t add funds) the broker will liquidate some of the orders and it will restore the balance of the account to meet the maintenance margin.
