    Leverage

    I have several account in different brokerage companies.. leverage which was chosen there is 1:100.. i prefer to trade with low risk.. it was always interesting for me to talk with traders who choose leverage up to 1:500 ... I know that they are!! how is it? what strategy do they choose? it is very difficult to work with such a big risk?
    once upon a time.....

    it is not the point what you should not do - it is the choice of the company which will suite you for this most as well. not all these types are available. but i also do wonder speaking to people knowing about risk management - no wonder they are not in a hurry to give us advice here

    Re: Leverage

    if you have a small money amount on your deposit, it makes no sense to work without leverage. so 1:100 - is the best option, i think. :dance4:

    Leverage is the degree to which an investor or business is utilizing borrowed money.
    You choose leverage independently taking into consideration what you trade will be in the future: without risk, with low risk or aggressive.
    Avoiding the phrase "I don't have time...", will soon help you to realize that you do have the time needed for just about anything you choose to accomplish in life!

    Investing a minimum, due to leverage you can execute your transactions with larger amount. 1:100 - is the best one to start with.

    1:100 - the most sensible, I would rather say :declare:

    MrRobingood, now I understand, what leverage means! Thanks! :good3: I see, that most of the traders here choose this one 1:100, I will choose the same for the first time in my future trading. :dance4:
