Security Margin Requirements


Does anyone know if there is a way to retrieve margin requirements for a spcific security from IB. For example, I believe the margin requirements for a non-leveraged etf is 25% of market value. However a 2x leveraged etf would be 50% of market value. Is there a way for the alogrithm to retrieve this information?
