Thats true but i cant see it being anyone’s top priority. It is good to compound small accounts but other than that medium to low leverage will do if you have a proper trading plan in place

Are you… trying to recommend a broker?

Leverage in trading is a strategy that may result in both big profits and high losses. It is a hot issue among traders, and some traders fall prey to leverage trading. As a result, it manipulates a trader’s emotions. So, make sure to use leverage carefully because it can amplify both profits as well as losses. Also, incorporate risk management strategies when doing leveraged trading.

Leverage in of itself isn’t risky and it doesn’t blow accounts. Failure to understand it and practice good risk management does.

Need good leverage though generally and just manage your rewards

Leverage becomes a favorite choice in traders as it enables a trader to take more risk beyond his or her capability. A trader’s profitability ratio depends highly on leverage. It depends on a trader’s will how much leverage he is willing to use. Higher leverage usage is risky for traders.

Leverage trading is a technique that brings profits as well as losses. It allows traders to open positions with much larger amounts of money than they started. The traders only should pay a portion of the stake. Margin is the percentage of the position required, and leverage is the value ratio of the position to the investment required.

Without the appropriate expertise and experience to deal with the highs and lows connected with this type of trading, leveraged trading, as it is known in the Forex market, is a very dangerous method to utilize.

its a very good post with fine logic. thanks for nice post

I couldn’t agree more, even as there are risks to it there are also benefits to it. It’s all about putting the efforts and understanding how it works.

Leverage can be highly risky if traders are not aware of the risks involved in the trade. He should first calculate the risks and use strict risk management while trading leverage.

A clear and obvious benefit if using it correctly is that you can trade the same conditions with less capital in higher leverage accounts. As long as it’s not abused this allows for more powder to be kept dry and so less risk. Jumping on hundreds of trades using position sizes that are far too large will blow any account regardless of leverage.

If you are trading forex then you need leverage to make profits. How much risk and how high your leverage is should be up to your experience and risk management. New trader should only use lowe leverage level up to 1:100 maximum.

this is a fine reply with good information , thanks for your nice post.

Leverage is a support (from FX brokers) for the Forex traders; but depending on high trading leverage can’t be a good choice! In my live trading account, I always prefer small trading leverage like 1:100!

Yeah leverage is good, but caution is needed if we are to use leverage. Understand the market and have proper risk management before you determine the ratio of leverage to use.

Tough leverage offered by the forex market seems appealing, especially to the beginner it should be avoided. It can wipe out your entire account and sometimes even lead to debts if the market becomes volatile.

1:100 is not small leverage. In Europe we’re limited to 1:30 and can make good profits and big losses with that.

Leverage has become a popular choice among traders since it allows them to assume more risk than they are capable of. Leverage has a significant impact on a trader’s profitability ratio. The amount of leverage a trader is willing to use is determined by his personal preferences. For traders, using more leverage is risky.
