High leverage = High risk?

Trading with higher leverage is risky, but higher leverage can also bring in higher profit value than an average leverage trade.

Never trade with high leverage...you will loose your money.

I don’t see any point in believing that high leverage can be harmful to your trading account. For me, the more leverage, the better the trades. I use leverage up to 1:200 with swissquote and xtb. I do make losses but they all get recovered after I make profits. I don’t think you can have a successful trading career without taking risks.

The level of leverage isn’t important if the risk management rules are used properly.

Yeah the account balance, position size and stop-loss level are factors that’ll help calculating the risk I suppose. Better say, I calculate mine keeping in mind these 3 aspects.

Average leverage! Hmm, how much would that be

Should a beginner broker trade with higher leverage or stick to lower leverage for most live trading experience?

I think you mean ‘trader’ buddy, you’re on the right page here, I’ve been deliberating over the same issue.

@voicebissa So you’re saying that if I have a $1,000 account balance and set the stop loss at 10 pips, I can use 10:1 leverage with the 0.10 lots position size?

Exactly what I’m saying Johnathan. Each pip would be worth $1 and the risk you’ll take on each trade would be $10 or just 1%. Not bad right?
