You can calculate margin level(%) if you know how much margin it takes to open or maintain a position, and your current equity.

Example with FX instrument: 1 lot EURUSD. 100,000 EUR (in USD)*Base currency rate to USD(1.13/1)(EURUSD rate)*margin rate in specification(1%) = 1130 USD. Formula for margin% = (used margin(usd))/equity(usd)*100%.

Example: you are going to open 1 lot EURUSD and your current equity is 100,000 usd. In this case opening 1 lot EURUSD will take 1130 USD(as per previous calculation) and final formula = margin/equity*100% = 1130/100000 * 100% = 1,13%
