If you use a broker that offers negative balance protection, there’s no way that you’ll be risking owing anything to the broker. Then there’s stop loss as well to the rescue. If I’m not wrong all brokers offer these features, and if yours don’t, simply transfer your funds to a better broker.

Certainly! I am devoting maximum time on my risk management part of the trading plan. Not planning on risking more than 1%, and going to maintain a ratio of 1:3 for using leverage. Hopefully I’m on the right track.

Technically leverage helps you to gain more but the problem with them is that you can also lose completely
I completely agree with you, and sadly it’s the losing part that happens more.
HIGH RISK WARNING: Foreign exchange trading carries a high level of risk that may not be suitable for all investors.
Leverage creates additional risk and loss exposure. Before you decide to trade foreign exchange, carefully consider your investment objectives, experience level, and risk tolerance.
You could lose some or all of your initial investment. Do not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. Educate yourself on the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial or tax advisor if you have any questions.
