What type of leverage do you use? What is the maximum leverage?

Leverage allows traders to get bigger returns on smaller investments. They only provide a portion of the capital required to open a position, but their cash deposits are amplified - or "leveraged" - and the profit or loss is based on the total value of the position. The return can be much higher than your initial cash investment. But if it all goes wrong, losses can also occur.
