Sample Margin Clerk Cover Letter

A margin clerk cover letter displays the applicant's experience compiling data, and using a computer to determine customer margin (equity) in stock purchased. This individual also totals customer accounts and computes the difference between the purchase price of stock and the present market value, using a calculator to show the amount due for brokerage fees. All margin clerk cover letters should show the hiring what the job seekers can do and any previous experience to back it up.
