there is a notice ...please be advised that these shares have Special Margin Requirments....can anyone please explain?

Most of the time, when you go on margin, you can borrow up to 50% of the value of your shares. (This is to protect you from getting in over your head if the stock drops.)

But EPIQ is such a volatile stock that they're worried you might wind up in debt if it plummets, so you can't borrow as much money using EPIQ as security.

Since you're not borrowing money here, but rather selling stock, you don't have to worrk.
