Forex Brokers with High Leverage

Margin Requirement and Leverage

Margin: the deposit that’s required to open or maintain a position.

  • Used margin: the amount that’s being used to maintain or open a position
  • Usable margin: the amount available to open new positions or add to existing positions

Leverage. e.g. 100:1 leverage. With a $1,000 margin balance in your account and a 1 percent margin requirement, you can buy or sell a position worth $100,000.

Risk management & money management skills are essential if a trader decide to trade with high leverage.  It is very risky.

Note that most forex brokers will close all open trades automatically when the margin balance falls below the amount required to keep the positions open. If not, traders might lose more than the money they have in their account because of leverage.
