Agreed and that’s why 1:3 risk reward ratio is preferred. I also believe trading on leverage is a safe bet. Correct me if I’m wrong.
Let me try explaining it to you in numbers. I agree with @gareylinn509. If you decide to use hgh leverage, say 50:1, and purchase 5 standard lots, each one pip movement will cost you $50. In case the trader goes against the investor by 50 pips, the investor would end up losing $2500 which will be 25% of the total $10,000 trading account.
I believe selecting the right leverage is something that entirely depends on the trader’s experience, his comfort while operating currencies, and risk tolerance level. Beginners should however familiarize themselves with the jargons and build some experience in keeping small positions, using trailing stops, and restricting the capital amount for each position.

The reason is they don't want their traders to lose more than what they have in their accounts and this usually only happens with leverage of more than 1:100. In general your assumption is correct, no good broker will give you 1:300 - 1:500 leverage as your loss doesn't go into their pocket and it is always a hassle to get money from clients to cover their negative balance.
Wait!! Isn’t negative balance protection provided by the brokers?? I thought that was a given.
No true broker will give you a negative balance protection. If your broker makes money from commissions and not from being a counter-party for your trades, he can't cover your negative balance as your losses don't go into his pocket.
Do you really want to use this much leverage, even though most of the reliable brokers can offer you leverage ranging from 1:2 to 1:1,000 depending on the investment and requirement of the traders. There are different leverage levels that are ideal for traders with diverse knowledge and experience. So, when you talk to your broker, consider your individual needs and strategy. But, if you’re seriously planning this much leverage, do work on your strategy once.

Truly said and what traders don’t understand is that they could make huge profits with it, but if things go downhill, it can take an ugly turn. High leverage only promises additional investment, not profit. There are numerous aspects in trading that actually chalk out whether there’ll be gains or losses. Majority of the novice traders think high leverage will reap profits and make them rich overnight.
Hey Mark, I guess that’s the difference in experienced traders and novices. For all I know, they usually use 10:1 or 20:1 on a higher side and prefer making some small trades to protect their capital. What the latter don’t understand is that to benefit the most from the leverage, so not invest the entire amount on one trade. Moving gradually and aiming for steady returns will help them.
