I have never used one - my current brokerage account is all paid for. What is the typical ratio provided? Say with 100K in securities, could one expect a 75K limit? Are interest rates as good as a heloc? (Ie. prime). And finally can this margin be pulled from the account, or is the loan granted with the requirement that you buy more securities.

I'm looking at a business expansion and would prefer not to have to sell securities to raise cash. Keeping the securities and borrowing against them is appealing to me....
