What is leverage trading

Leverage allows you to open large deals with a relatively small investment.
How large? Up to 400 times your initial investment, depending on the instrument you trade.

This means that with a $500 investment you can open trades worth up to $200,000.

What is leverage trading

Keep in mind that while leverage increases your online CFD trading power, it also increases risk to your investment, so be sure to use with sufficient knowledge and training.
