      Standard level leverage is well. Professionally trade or more trade placing need different strategy and margin call. over lot size place after again again message come to alert to your leverage position or trade condition margin call.
      To set the leverage for their trading account, there should be some good knowledge regarding the leverage for the traders such that they understand the impact of high and low leverages used in their trading account. And each person has their own trading preferences according to which leverage may be used.

      right, suppose we have $ 100 of investment, and we use 1: 100, it means that we can trade with 100 times of the capital that we use, or about 10,000, which is why we can get big profits in a short time and also can lose all our investment in a short time.

      by selecting the largest leverage ratio will enable a trader to make a lot of transactions in the same time, 1:2000. but this is not a wise decision because it makes a big leverage balance is threatened by the many orders, that leverage can be said as a sword with double side. leverage is too low is also not efficient because it takes a long time to be able to achieve a profit, you should use leverage with medium level like 1: 100 to 1: 400.

      Leverage is financial help that the broker gives to the trader so that the trader can trade with more volume. The trader ought to make use of leverage to enhance more profit but in such a case the trader needs to be wise so that huge losses will not be made in the trading account.

      Leverage denotes the factor by which one's trade size or volume is multiplied so as to enhance a trader's potential profit ( or alternatively and regrettably, loss). Leverage enables a trader to literally borrow from his broker in order to finance a trade. If not used properly, it could backfire because, as they say, "leverage is a double-edged sword". Newbies should always use low leverage - maximum of 1:100.

      If you are not trading with any leverage, then it means that you are using you account capital only for each of your trades, in such cases, if you happen to buy 1 lot ( instaforex lot) EUR/USD at 1.1500 then you need to deposit $11500, before you can make the trade

      Dear friend leverage is a facility through which we can trade with bigger lot size on small capital,so we can make good profit.But for surviving in market for long time we must use small leverage.We must never use leverage more than 1:200.Small leverage helps to control the risk of trading by limiting our lot size.Once set we must never increase our leverage.

      leverage is what it means the ability to employ other persons resources for you own use, but in the forex market you are employing the broker's money for your own use because the technology has made things to be easy , so poor people can now trade the forex market because of the availability of leverages.

      Using low leverage will help us to avoid over trades or over lot size if we don't have a good emotional control for our trading. But if we have a good emotional control or greed control then we can use high leverage and follow a good risk management, the main reason for losing big money quickly is our greed or emotion, don't need to blame the leverage.

      Leverage means loan. Usually to trade in forex market need huge capital for traders every broker provides leverage and by using leverage a trader can trade in market. Like if a trader has capital 50$ than by using high leverage he/she will be able to trade in forex market. In simple word i will say that leverage is our best friend :P .
