Can you have a high leverage but use a small Lot size to minimize risk?

I think, which traders use the high trading leverage they are interested in only big lots size!

Sure you can. If you have proper money management and risk control, the leverage is not so important :)

How much leverage is more appropriate for you it depend on your trading plan and money management approach . when I was a newbie I used 1:100 leverage in my live account for avoiding risk. but in my demo account I always took high leverage 1:1000 to see the performance how it works. this approach always cautious me to trade in a small balance for avoiding loss .

1:1000 trading leverage, really? Then what’s your risk reward ratio?

Some brokers will allow you to apply for changes in the leverage rates. At least, they used to.
Now that ESMA's regulation is in effect - you have to first apply for a professional trader status and then apply for the leverage you want.

Please, don’t use such kind of aggressive trading leverage! Please, take care of your risk reward ratio (not more than 2%).

@Adribaasmet & @kacper5

Mohammadi clearly stated that he uses 100:1 on real and 1000:1 on demo.
