High leverage attracts new traders but few of them know the actual working of leverage. I would recommend that before pushing yourself into the trades that need margin, try to understand the concept clearly, otherwise it can wipe off your account balance.
Yes, I am taking my sweet time to be thorough with trading concepts.

Everyone should use fixed stops, even if it is a safety stop loss wider than normal. All it takes is some political event to shake the markets just after you entered to cause massive price spike. Without a safety SL you could make massive losses

It seems to me that the risk does not depend on the size of the leverage, on our ability and willingness to take risks.

@Eric ideally, you shouldn’t risk more than 1 or 2% of your trade. It also depends upon the trading style of a person and how much they’re willing to risk. For example, I trade with IB and Fxview and my risk management is such that I don’t go beyond risking 2% of it. This helps me maintain a balance and minimises potential losses too.

Garey! It's okay to not take unnecessary risks but still I would say take calculated risks. This would be much beneficial for you.

It is a great advice Russel, that in the beginning try to trade micro lots, and use innovative strategies for the same.

Yes
High leverage = High risk = High chance of wiping out your account/funds

Only if you dont know how to use it. If you get to a good stage of trading then sometimes you can use it to your advantage

High leverage doesn’t always mean risk. It is all about knowing what you are doing. If you can manage using high leverage there is no harm in using it.

For me, 1:100 is a good leverage to use. There is no point in risking a big amount that if lost, can pose a heavy burden on your finances. Give it a thought before you take the risk of using high leverage.

A higher leverage is way too risky, specially for a newbie who can end up getting himself trapped in a bad debt.

And is there any way of earning decently without using leverage? I doubt it!

Debt?? I don’t intend to take up a loan for trading, as wrongly (I think) suggested by a friend!

High leverage is considered risky because when a trader loses in a trade with high leverage, the loss also results in a large amount, whereas if the trader can convert it into a successful trade, the profit earned is more than the invested amount.

New traders should not use high leverage in trading. Traders need to control and minimize the risk for using high leverage.

See, no doubt that there is a high level of risk with high leverage but the only thing matters is how much knowledge and experience you have for taking such risks.

Using higher leverage in a live trade is risky to traders with less or no experience in trading because if trader losses with higher leverage, it is possible for those traders to blow up their accounts.

Actually 'leverage' just means that you'll get a 'credit' from a bank or liquidity provider of the broker. A max. account leverage of 1:500 means that you can trade with a maximum of 500k per trade (!) while you'll only throw in 1k of your own money. But if you'll lose 2k in that trade, where does the other 1k come from then? Right, it comes from your deposits (and that's how can get into debt). Most professional brokers have a negative balance stop out. But the higher your leverage the higher the chance you'll get to this stop out.
patience is the key
