Everyone is in commenting on this post to just increase their post count. Nice people. Even the actual questioner is not in this world now. But we're still making good use of his years-old thread. SO considerate of you all. Keep it up.
Indicators are so deceiving, always lagging. Trend lines & Calendars are the best.
I may be wrong but I see leverage as an option that increases your chances of losing more money than you can afford to lose. I don’t know how come people are so brave to take the risk. I have never used leverage more than 5x.
Leverage is truly called the double-edged sword. You must only use it when you are sure about the market trend and know that you will win. If you are even a little unsure, I don’t suggest using leverage.
Well, I would say that leverage is not vital for trading. I mean that you can easily do without leverage, however, you will have smaller profits. To tell you the truth, I think that the newbies should stay away from trading with leverage because not every beginner understands how to evaluate the risks which they have within a concrete deal. Before trading with leverage you should understand how to measure the risks and manage your budget in order not to lose everything within sheer minutes. Later on you can think of using leverage in your trading but with caution. You definetely should be aware of money and risk management in order to make your trading more or less safe for your budget. Speaking of high and low leverage, it is important to note that the higher leverage you have, the more risks you take. I don't see any problems of trading with huge leverage. The only thing is that you should be careful about the position size. You can regulate it as if you wish.
As usual, you need to find the golden mean. If the leverage is too high, then, surely, the potential profits will high, but you will run more risks. Somtimes the leverage can lose $100 within a minute, that is why I strongly recommend to trat leverage with caution. It is hard to say what leverage should be specifically because we all are different and one man's meat is another man's poison. So, you should decide for yourself.
I believe that all traders decide on their own, whether leverage trading is important for them or not. The matter here is to understand how much place leverage trading takes in your trading activity. If you try to stay away of the leverage trading, because you are afraid of facing such risks, then of course, it will be quite difficult for you claim that leverage trading is significant for you. Probably, you will tell that you don't care about it at all. Some traders who are fond of leverage trading might say that leverage trading means everything for them because it brings the money. Here everything is pretty individual.
