You’ve got yourself plenty of options. Turnkey forex, Oanda, XTB, Cityindex to name a few. They all are good high leverage brokers. The leverage that they offer depends mostly on the kind of account you hold, and sometimes on the capital that you have invested. Besides high leverage, there are some brokers who offer low spreads as well. Oanda and Turnkey forex are two brokers you could look further into.
