A:

A. None



B. $1,000



C. $1,500



D. $2,000




Correct answer: D

Explanation: The account is in restriction since the equity is less than 50% of the market value. [MV – DR = EQ --$18,000 - $10,000 = $8,000]. 50% of $18,000 = $9,000. The account is in restriction by $1,000. The SMA may be used so long as it does not push the EQ below the 25% maintenance level.
