Despite of good money managing skill , leverage can be harmful .
because the market is too much volatile and there is nothing 100% in here.

leverage is useful for trader , especially if trader start with small balance hence with leverage it will giving opportunity to making transaction on Fx market , now some broker offer high leverage until 1:1000 but so far I am only use leverage 1:400 as maximum.

Get as much leverage as you can, you don't have to use it all, the goal is not really to get to the stopout point. The leverage itself shouldn't be part of your money management strategy. I use 1:500 (australian max).

I am not sure, 1:3000 trading leverage is for trading or gambling! Yes, which brokers manipulate traders trading result, they mainly inspire traders to trade with high risk reward ratio! By the way, Forex trading is not gambling! So, pro traders are comfortable with standard trading leverage.

As low as I can. I don't think the higher number is a good idea since leverage is a double-edged sword - either you win big or you lose big.

I have seen according to my trading experience by and large traders in particularly the newcomers fall a great loss by taking high leverage due to non-sense planning and zero risk management policy , so it is more important to acquire risk management plan before trading with high leverage. My trading career I always use high leverage in demo account to see the performance how it works. It always helps me to avoid risk in my live account when trading practically with leverage.

I am using 1:500 leverage, High leverage increase my margin to trade. Basically margin consumed for every trade would be less If you have good leverage.

I am using 500X leverage currently. But just a suggestion to you guys, as a complete beginner use lower leverage as there is high risk involved with the higher leverage along with the advantages.

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.

I am currently using 1:500 of leverage, as it allows me to use less of my funds and helps in diversifying my trade portfolio; thereby increasing the chances of profitability.

Isn't 500x too risky at the same time ?
