What is Leverage & Margin in Forex Trading?
FX TRADING ON LEVERAGE
You can trade Forex and CFDs on leverage. This can allow you to take advantage of even the smallest moves in the market. When you trade with FXCM, your trades are executed using borrowed money. For example, 30:1 leverage on a major forex pair like AUD/USD allows you to trade with $10,000 in the market by setting aside only around $334 as a security deposit. Please keep in mind that leverage is a double-edged sword. While it can greatly amplify your profits, it can also dramatically amplify your losses.
Forex Leverage Limits
FXCM offers different leverage for different tradeable instruments.
