Hi,


The leverage that the broker offers, is one thing. The leverage you use, it's another thing. If you are looking to trade like a pro, then trade unleverage, if you're looking to trade your own money, I would advice no more than 5:1 per trade.


Oooh that is a different perspective.

Could you explain? (sorry for bothering you but I am just interested)


Different brokers
DIfferent conditions
Different pairs
Different trading strategies

Different leverages


It is actually good to have high leverage provided on your account. It gives you a liberty to trade with significant profit and low capital.
Other thing is how much leverage you use. In this you need to stay disciplined and follow your money mgmt plan.

I like what I trade, I trade what I like

I prefer low leverage. Right now using 1:50. Will gradually increase though.

I use max leverage I can find from a regulated broker. Best I can find is 1:500 at the moment. As Vontogr says higher leverage is safer and better. US and EU think otherwise but they don't know what they are talking about

Can I ask why you prefer low leverage?

I use 1:30 on accounts with FCA regulated brokers and max. 1:200 with no regulated. There are different strategies and algorithms to manage risks for each account.

For avoiding risk I always use 1:100 leverage in spite of having up to leverage 1:2000 , actually leverage is an important financial tool which always contains risk , so it is better if we avoid using high leverage in real account.
