By default, all client accounts are set up using a leverage rate of 100:1 (1%). According to the account balance, a client may choose a rate between 1:1 (no leverage) to a maximum 500:1. Please consider which leverage rate is appropriate for your needs. It is important to understand the concept of leverage and how it may impact on your trading.
Certain currencies attract a higher margin rate irrespective of your account leverage. Some currencies may have a fixed leverage rate, while others (such as exotic currencies), may require up to five (5) times the margin rate of a major currency.
