High leverage = High risk?

I think leverage varies according to the brokers. A 100:1 leverage for instance would allow you to open a 1 lot position with just $1000. I have been following this approach with both turnkeyforex and oanda but when I tried this with my new account with forex.com, this wasn’t the case.

I believe that leverage is a function of risk and this is the reason why most market makers offer it. If the account is properly managed, the risk will also be manageable. You have to be really very careful when you are using leverage.

I prefer applying small amounts of leverage to each of my trades as it leaves more room for trades with a wider stop loss to avoid a higher loss of capital. Remember that a highly leveraged trade can deplete your account quickly if it goes against you.

It is a misconception that the higher the leverage, the higher the RPC. It all depends on your preparedness.

Higher leverage is very risky but how much leverage I will use usually depends on the investment. If I want to select low leverage with a small deposit, it will be very difficult for me. I have to select leverage with a good deposit.

If anyone has found a way to beat the market then you can even use 10000x leverage. If you haven't then you will loose your money...

Test yourself open a demo account out of 30 trades if you don't loose. Then use the highest leverage...

When you have the option of customizing the use of leverage as per your trading requirements, I don’t think that you should risk bigger amounts even when you are not ready for them.

Yes, that’s true. As long as you are keeping positions small and limiting the amount of capital for each position, you are on the right track of using and managing leverage.

You don’t have to be afraid of using leverage. Use trailing stops to reduce your losses when a trade goes in the wrong direction. Just see to it that your broker allows using different stops. And this is not the only advantage of these stops that I see. It so much reduces the emotion of trading and surely results in better trading decision-making.

Leverage can magnify your profits but it doesn’t mean that it is the only way of making money. You can make money otherwise too, though they won’t be as high as you would have made with leverage.
