Yes Dennis, and standard lots would be a big no, same with high leverage.

Personally I think there is no harm in using leverages because if you know what you are doing and are sure, a leverage trade would bring you profit. It is okay then to use leverages.

It is also a good method to allocate the trade according to the risk because then we can be assured that what we are getting out of that trade. If you are new to the trading world then the best method would be to trade micro lots because of the low risk.

There are several types of lots you can trade and even True Dennis, for someone new micro lots is suitable. But overall, standard lots and no matter how much leverage you use it all depends on your learning capacity.

Leverages are risky but when you are trading micro lots it can be boon for the traders because then with little amounts and NBP you can trade many positions.

The risk can be further mitigated through the stop losses. I have been using fixed stop losses for all of my trades through etoro but I saw that trailing stop losses are far more useful when I started trading with fxview. There is much more flexibility.

I am yet to sail that boat, kind of doing okay with fixed stops at the moment. Maybe ill try trailing stops in demo.

Trade size should always be on the basis of risk capacity. Leverages should be on basis of the trader and what is the ratio of win in the particular trade.

Agreed, these numbers will always vary according to what choices is a trader making concerned to risk and capital. One should be careful while using leverage though.

There’s a certain % that you must be prepared to lose in a trade, based on that, calculate your leverage ratio and trade size that you want to use. What I do is, instead of investing all of my capital in one go, I split my orders on micro lots of fxview, xtb and trade. So your style of trading and preferences are going to shape a lot of things.

Advantages of micro lots are truly endless:
Lower risk

More flexibility

Great for learning position sizing

I think the best method to determine trade size and leverages is what is your risk taking capacity. Because if you take high leverages or bigger lot sizes then it will destroy your capital

Rightly said mate. Higher the leverage higher are the chances to blow up your account.

But I literally got convinced here that whether you use low/high leverage, percentage you are gonna use is only proportional to your capital, so it doesn’t really matter
