What are you guys talking about? Leverage allows you to make the margin bigger. If you follow proper position sizing, you would have the exact same amount of risk every single trade. You only need 2 things: capital amount you are willing to risk and total pips from entry to stoploss. Using those two, you can get the correct lot size. Whatever happens to the trade, you will lose the exact same amount of capital regardless of what leverage you have on the account. Leverage matters only when you have a lot of trades open as it will allow you to open more due to bigger margin.
Trading is a marathon, not a sprint.
