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.
FXGT.com offers dynamic leverage that actively reduces the amount of leverage required in real time, to protect our clients’ trading accounts from excessive risk exposure. The maximum leverage offered varies across different regions, account types and asset classes.
To check each instrument’s leverage, live pricing, and trading characteristics, visit the Markets section on our website. For an overview of each account type’s characteristics and trading conditions, please refer to our Trading Account Types page.
You can change the leverage of your account in the Client Portal. Select the account you wish to change the leverage on, then go to ‘Actions’ and ‘Request Leverage change’. Please note that you can only reduce leverage on your account, if you do not have any open positions.
