On each trade you will have 0.1\$ of loss for each pip.

For 50 pips you will have \$5 loss.

so you saying all traders will lose 5\$ regardless of leverage?

You are welcome.

Leverage affects the maximum lot size you can open.
For example, on a small leverage you would not be able to open large lot site, like 1.0 which is standard lot.

Leverage also affects margin and free margin.

Trader 3 account 1000\$ leverage 1:100

Trader 5 account 1000\$ leverage 1:1
Buy 0.01 EUR/USD 0.01 close the trade at 50 pips =loss 5\$

From what i understand itβs only when i increase the lot size that leverage start making an impact

this is a smart beginner question. I was confused with leverage and what it was when I first started out. But, yea the leverage determines the maximum lot size you can use like what @GetKnowTrading said . And if you have a \$1k account and close the trade at 50 pips on any pair then you would lose \$5 for all pairs.

leverage sounds simple in words , but when using high leverage then you can realize its a most dangerous thing in the world which can make you gainer and also a loser within very short time.

You should use a leverage calculator, or margin required calculator. There is also the pip value calculator. Google it, find and use it.

Indeed

So since leverage affect margin level% using the example below how much % margin level will be left when opening an 1 order of buy eur/usd 0.01 on each account?
Trade 1 account 1000\$ leverage 1:500 = how much % margin level

Trader 2 account 1000\$ leverage 1:300 = How much % margin level

Trader 3 account 1000\$ leverage 1:100 = how much % margin level

Trader 4 account 1000\$ leverage 1:50 = How much % margin level

Trader 5 account 1000\$ leverage 1:1 == How much % margin level

Leverage affects the size of initial margin for position and not potential loss or profit.

its a good suggestion you are talking about. appreciate. thanks. but in general Forex traders like to use leverage with no calculate, as a result fall a great trouble above all when market moves at random.
