The aim of trading with a $2,000 account can't be to make a living from it, surely? A tiny minority of traders manage to make a steadyish 5% per month ($100, on a $2,000 account). This is a good thread: http://forums.babypips.com/newbie-island/17223-pipcrawlers-thoughts-setting-newbie-expectations.html
It may be possible to offset your risk with some kind of option, but it's going to cost something to do (and I think your account-size might even preclude this), but it's a terribly complicated and difficult way of trading and unlikely to benefit you in the long run.
Margin calls can't be an issue unless your risk management parameters are seriously defective. The essential point is that your position-sizing, here, is currently way out of proportion to your account size. Sorry - not what you wanted people to say, I know, but this doesn't detract from its validity. :8:
