The most powerful leverage offered by the brokers are 1:500 and 1:1000 because the higher the leverage , the higher margin or more traders simultaneously that we can execute. Leverage is a matter of our choice for the risks we will take whether we are good for high risks or not.

To be honest 1:1000 leverage is a super huge leverage. From one side yes the usage of capital will be very less than usual, but from other I would be scared to leave a trade open without monitoring it.

Anyway, there are people who trade with 1:2000 lev.
or EVEN 1:3000!
I use 1:500 mostly, and it seems normal, bot so big..

Its true many high losses are being made by the higher leverage, but on the other hand  it is possible to make money very rapidly by using high leverage if you can make most accurate money management plan that can minimize our risk when trading.

I am involved in currency trading and I am using 1:500 leverage and I always take the minimum risk with this leverage, I am earning reasonable amount while using this 1:500 leverage and I will suggest all the newbies that they should use this leverage for efficient survival.

dreamfx do you believe that a lower leverage is not efficient?

I believe lower leverage is very efficient! If you trade with leverage 1:1 there is no chance your account to burn out (unless the instrument you are trading drop its value to 0. I highly doubt that will happened)

Leverage is really important especially for retail trader because will leverage hence will only required smallest free margin to open order , now many broker offer high leverage and as retail trader they can maximize opportunity to making transaction.

Really, leverage makes forex trading a very rewarding activity, such that you can earn fantastic income from the forex market within a very short time with comparatively little capital. But it is like a double edge sword that can work for you as well as against you.  so, I always sincere about using leverage.

I use leverage 1:2000. Don't be afraid this leverage. I like it because I can trade with small deposit with it. I just use not all the sum, so I don't have big looses.

To leverage the selection depends on your trading capitals, if you are trading with small capital so it is better trade using high leverage so that the resilience of our account will be maintained.

Can I ask you what part of your deposit you risk usually?

Leverage is among the things that made Forex trading very unique because leverage makes one to have chances of making good amount of profits even with small amount of capital. So leverage is good as well as well risky cause high leverage the higher risk.

I use leverage 1:2000. Many people criticize this leverage, but if you set up your limmits correctly you won't get any problem with this leverage. And also you don't have to use all your sum of money.

500:1 to get a decent average 15 to 20% per month with DD around that level too.
