With "money" it refers to the value of Free Margin in your account. Free Margin is the only kind of money you can use for trading, Balance is just a meaningless number.

Thank you 7bit. I still don't understand. Does it meant if the free margin is negative, all pending trade will be deleted eventhough the equity is 50% of the balance.

if free margin ever becomes negative you are not far away from a margin call. You should drastically reduce your lot sizes so that free margin will never come even close to zero. You should read some literature about money management and optimal lot sizing.
