Nice ratio on trading leverage but what’s your risk reward ratio on per trade?
New traders usually get into this kind of problem. Causes losses in high leverage trading. If a trader does not follow money management and risk management, he will never be able to make a consistent profit. Risk management has the power to cover the losses of two trades with one trade. Money management protects your investment at all times. So if a trader trades without maintaining high leverage and discipline, he will never succeed in trading.

I agree with this point. yes, for sure trading on higher leverages is a risky game if you are an amateur and just started exploring the trading world. In this case, high leverage will surely blow up your account because you are unaware of how the market responds to economic indicators and other technical aspects. Thus, initially one must work on low leverage once you have gained enough confidence, you can surely opt for higher leverage.
After all, who doesn't like bigger treats with less investment.

Yes demo account helps to test us our trading strategy. It is advisable that first we need to test our strategy on demo to find out winning percentage and risk reward ratio. Once we find it profitable we should move to live trading account.
