    Default Leverage

    If you are more of a risk taker, then you can increase your leverage. If you are a more conservative person, you can adjust your risk level (lever at a much lower level). Warning, this is a double-edged sword.

    With the leverage provided by the broker, we could trade with small capital. But, there are things we have to remember that regardless of the leverage that we use, we must remain disciplined when trading.

    With leverage, we can trade with small capital. Each broker have difference in providing maximum leverage. For the broker that I use now, give maximum leverage up to 1:1000. We should be able to us it as well as possible, and certainly regardless of the leverage that we use, we must remain disciplined when trading.

    Leverage is never the problem people. It does not matter how much you leverage your account as long as you maintain your risk management. Risk does not increase with higher leverage as long as you maintain how much you are willing to risk.

    Leverage is like a double-edged sword. On one side leverage helps us to trade with small capital, but on the one hand, leverage can be a weapon that will hurt ourselves, could even spend our trading capital if we can not utilize properly and discipline when trading. That's why I prefer to use the leverage of 1:600 ​​in InstaForex although my broker provide leverage up to 1:1000..

    That is incorrect, leverage will never hurt your portfolio. The lack of risk management will.

    Leverage can indeed make our account experience a margin call if we can not use this leverage wisely because sometimes a trader who use great leverage emerging desire to use a large lot when trading.

    of course, leverage can be a boomerang for our trading. Due to the huge leverage so we can be driven to become greedy traders. If we are unable to control themselves well, then we could be trading with over lots.
