In my opinion , 1:200 leverage is good for a newbie. Because at these leverage there will be a low risk and average profit that a newbie will be interested to trade in Forex market as well as invest. When a newbie invest in Forex market and have not enough knowledge about leverage , they take high risk . so that leverage is better option to me.
1:200 leverage is neither good or bad. It's just leverage.
Leverage DOES NOT indicate the risk level of the account.
Leverage DOES NOT indicate the average profit.
