High leverage = High risk?

For me, leverage is the way of reducing the amount of trading capital that must be used. It also releases the trading capital for other trades.

Leverage is for professional traders who have been in the market for quite some time and know what it can do for them. When new traders are told not to use leverage, it means that they should trade like an amateur and not a professional. Every time I trade a currency pair, I use the highest leverage possible with swissquote because I believe that as a trader with years of experience, the more leverage, the better the trades.

Choosing the right leverage for your trades is not a one size fits all circumstance. It depends on how much capital you have and how much you are willing to risk. As a beginner, instead of looking for the best leverage you can use, you must focus on what you should know when you start forex trading.

And won’t that include how much leverage to use ? :)

Honestly, I don’t see any harm in using some leverage. You can always keep it low and work your way around it. Risking less is better if you are learning step by step.

The way I see it, I feel like using leverage can be a big liability since the principle cost of leverage has to be paid on any transaction or trade. There is also a risk with it and a trader is always at the risk of getting a margin call.

@Garey I used to think that too but when I actually used leverage, it kind of increased my capital efficiency. It also works well during low volatility periods. I was recently trading with ib and I worked with some highly leveraged positions but the result was pretty good so there’s that. I think there is more to leverage and we can actually use it for our benefit. Just sharing my 2 bits here.

Yeah. Leverage can be quite helpful at times. Better to use it wisely.

High leverage is considered a risk because the loss value is more than the invested capital, but it is also an advantage to use high leverage because the profit earn is doubled.

Yes, it is totally up to the skills of the trader, how leverage is used.
