Using too much leverage is the reason why most retail traders fail. Respect the following rules to keep your trading account healthy.

  • Keep your used leverage between 1:1 and 1:5
  • Never allocate more than 1:10 leverage on your account
  • Avoid trading more than 5-6 Forex pairs at the same time
  • Avoid excessive exposure to a single currency
Most brokers offer up to 1:400 leverage, but this should not be confused with the leverage you actually decide to allocate. Leverage is the ratio between your equity and the total market exposure of your trades. The more leverage you use, the smaller the market movement needed to decimate all your investing capital and put you on margin call. Using too much leverage is like suffering tachycardia in your own body: it can only be endured for so long until the body collapses.
