call loan rate
The interest rate charged by a lender for a call loan. A brokerage firm pays the call loan rate on money it borrows from a bank to loan to its account holders as margin. An investor pays the call loan rate when he or she borrows money from a brokerage firm to make margin-funded investments. Call loan rates typically run on par with short-term interest rates plus a percentage point or two.
