> Odd. Today Etrade changed the margin requirement from 80% back to 65%

The margin requirement goes up as your concentration in a company or industry goes up, and your concentration in IMMU goes up as the share price goes up.

Conversely, when the share price tanks (like yesterday) the margin requirement can go down.
