What is leverage?

Leverage is a useful financial tool that gives traders the ability to increase their market exposure beyond the initial deposit.


If you have a leverage of 1:400, you can control a large position ($120,000) with a small amount of margin ($300).

However, it is important to note that trading on leveraged products incurs a high level of risk and can result in the loss of all/more than your invested capital.
