1:200? dude it depends on the lot and the technique. Hedging? Hell no. Regular? yes

Never stop learning from strangers.

How can you guys say that 1:200 is good for newbies? On the contrary, the bigger the leverage you use, the more capital you risk (and also pay more fees). Not to mention, that EU regulated brokers can offer a maximum of 1:30 on major currency pairs.

For newbie that is extremely high leverage, as without preparation newbie can blow up all money in some minutes. For newvbies it's better to start with 1:20 or even without leverage, just to get used with Forex and trading.

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 is standard for me and if not the best, it's also good for traders t are not diciplined

leverage is one of the most important tools in forex market. It increases the investment ability. Traders generally choose those brokers which give more leverage than others. So it is a very important to choose a broker which has dynamic and high leverage.

It helps me to make more profit.


This is ok too

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.

[ Instrument pip values. ]
1.00 Lot size = $10.00 per pip
0.10 Lot size = $1.00 per pip
0.01 Lot size = $0.10 per pip

Account #1 Balance: $1000.00
EUR/USD 0.10 lots with -300 pips
-300 pips X $1.00 = -$300.00 LOSS

Ending balance: $700.00

Account #2 Balance: $1000.00
EUR/USD 0.01 lots with -30 pips
-30 pips X $0.10 = -$3.00 LOSS

Ending balance: $997.00

Additional costs may include spread, commission, swap, and related fees.

Account 1 will experience a catastrophic loss with approximately 3.34 bad trades in a row.
Account 2 will experience a catastrophic loss with approximately 333.34 bad trades in a row.

Low market exposure = low risk
High market exposure = high risk






If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.

FALSE.

Look at these two example trades.

Account #1: EUR/USD 0.10 lots with -300 pips stoploss = $300.00 USD LOSS

Account #2: EUR/USD 0.01 lots with -30 pips stoploss = $3.00 USD LOSS

Risk management limited the loss to $3.00 USD for account #2.

What may be standard and best for you, DOES NOT mean 1:200 is the standard and best leverage for everyone else.

In the United States retail Forex traders are typically limited to 1:50 leverage.

A retail Forex trader in the UK might be limited to 1:30 leverage.

Elsewhere a retail Forex trader might have 1:1000 maximum leverage available.

Maximum allowed leverage is generally determined by the governmental regulations and financial market restrictions which a brokerage may operate under.

Risk is determined by market exposure. It's basic math.

If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.
