What does this function return...

It seems some, if not all, brokers have different leverage for the various symbols. Typically metals & commodities tend to have different leverage from fx products...

"Returns leverage of the current account." nothing to do with any Symbols as far as I am aware . . . perhaps you are thinking about contract size ?

Go to any broker, even your broker, and find out the max. leverage on XAUUSD vs the max leverage for symbols like EURUSD... am sure the former will be much less.

I am sure they will be exactly the same. Files -> open an account -> There is one box for maximum leverage

You asked about the mql4 AccountLeverage() function . . . why are you posting an Alpari link ? did you look in your MT4 platform and notice the differences in contract size ?
