Yes there are some compliance that have to be followed by forex brokers. But choosing one of the brokers is a very important task. I would recommend that shortlist some of the brokers and make comparisons between them.

I can second that since I’ve been using XM and Fxview’s ECN too. The spreads are tight and the leverage is also fine. I try to keep the leverage low but then for some particular trades, it is got to be high. I mean if you’re not risking much, you won’t earn more profits, right?

There are different leverage levels that are ideal for traders with diverse knowledge and experience. So, when you talk to your broker, consider your individual needs and strategy. But, if you’re seriously planning this much leverage, do work on your strategy once.
Right and even though ECN brokers offer more than 100:1 leverage, the best deal would be to have a broker like Fxview, FXVM, or eToro that offers various leverage ratios like 50:1, 100:1, 200:1, and 400:1. I have traded with them and could change the leverage ratio on their website’s dashboard.
I completely agree with you on this. I use Fxview too and I’m thinking about opening some demos with Oanda or XM. Let's see how that works out.
That’s not true. There are so many ECN brokers that offer leverage more than 1:100. Some ECN brokers that I have already been using include ICM and Fxview and they offer quite high leverage. You need to go for their offshore option if you want to use high leverage.
You really need to do some more research on offshore brokers. There is no limit to the leverage that an ECN broker can offer. It is their choice and they set the limit according to their own conditions.
