After many years of trading i finally decided not to use any leverage whatsoever as i have discovered that i am not a disciplined trader. It is very important to know the kind of a trader you are. I want to trade Forex forever, so therefore the most important thing for me now is to protect my capital first and then take some small profits here and there forever and ever. All strategy will fail at some point, the only thing that will not fail is your ability to manage risk and this is the only 'holy grail' in this market

High leverage can bring profit instantly if you are able to make proper trading planning with great risk management policy , otherwise you can fall a huge loss by taking high leverage , in this market place by and large traders in particularly the newcomers fall a great loss by taking high leverage due to non-sense planning and zero risk management approach. So, before trading with high leverage we have to know how to manage risk.

Even when trading with low leverage you need to know how to manage risk. A low leverage account can be destroyed just as fast as a high leverage one if you do not understand how to manage risk

Don’t think it’s a good idea for newbies to trade with high leverage. Many experts say they use around 1:100 as well. Of course, it’s always an option if you’re prepared for the risk.

Many options in using leverage, and in theory and risk, using smaller is better, as I use leverage to keep the 1:100, do not let too many open positions

this is my 84 month with profit in a row system , its 100:1 leverage , but im trying to not use anything above 33:1 in my trading, but im pretty sure if it was 200:1 i could not keep Max DD around 12% so it could be over 20% , i think 50:1 is the best leverage possible ( personal opinion )

Yea 50 is fine, I find it better to do lower and increase the profit in long time.

Hi leverage is fine if you intend to still make full use of a solid risk management plan. The problem is most who seek high leverage are looking to maximise their margin to take too many trades that are too big.
If you can't spot the liquidity then you are the liquidity.

To be honest, I don’t see any advantage of using high trading leverage; in my trading right now I’m using 100:1 trading leverage! I think, more than 100:1 is risky according to my trading strategy! Basically high leverage brings high damage!

Leverage is a tool and should be treated as that only. When you are thinking of opening a bigger position never use more than the basic leverage. stick to the 30:1- sufficient. Understand the usage and then open trades.

When I was a newbie, then I used high trading leverage to make quick money in Forex! As a result, I lost my 1st 5 trading account within the 1st month of live trading! But now I am dealing with small trading leverage; high trading leverage is risky!

Leverage is a facility that is provided by a broker but not all brokers allow traders with the facility. But, a trader should know how to use leverage to lower their risk level. Haphazard use of leverage can lead to balance crash in the end of the day. So be very careful about using leverage.

I don’t prefer trading using high leverage because it contains a high degree of risk for a trader. Even though my broker allows me to trade using high leverage, I deny it because I have a very small balance so one mistake can lead to a dire consequence.

Leverage can be a blessing if the trader knows how to use it properly. It is preferable to only trade with high leverage when you are confident enough about your trades.

You're ryt! I have seen brokers giving 500x leverage but personally I have never used beyond 100x. Although I don't forget to apply SL to my trades but a fear in my mind always remain that in case I missed to apply SL and am on high leverage everything will be blown out. Even me too from the house. lol 😁

You can endlessly discuss the pros and cons of high leverage.
I still prefer that everyone take into account their trading, strategy and experience.
But one thing remains unchanged. If you want to trade with a large leverage, look for a broker who is ready to provide you with such a function. 😁😁
