You have $100 and then you invest the other $100 in dept also in that stock. So, you have $200 invested, but only $100 is actually yours because the other $100 is just debt. If the stock goes down to 50%, you will lose all your money. This is because it goes down to $100, but remember that the brokerage is the one that always gets their money first, so $100 left if their money.

You will have $400, of which $300 is your and $100 is the dept money. This is the power of margin trading, where you can make much more money compared to regular trading.
