Margin Requirements for Mutual Funds

What are the margin requirements for Mutual Funds?

Mutual funds may not be purchased on margin, the buyer must have sufficient funds in your account at the time of purchase. Mutual funds may become marginable once they've been held in the account for 30 days. As a result, their mutual fund positions may be segregated into marginable and non-marginable holdings.
