CFD Leverage is defined as the use of borrowed capital, such as “margin” allowing the Forex and CFD trader to gain access to larger sums of capital. This can heighten profits and losses and should be used wisely.
In compliance with ASIC’s Products Intervention Order, retail clients in Australia have access to maximum leverage of up to 30:1 on FX major currency pairs. Other CFD products such as index, gold, commodity, stocks, cryptocurrency and more carry lower leverage limits.
Forex Trader A has $5,000 USD:
If Forex Trader A has an account leverage of 10:1and they wish to use $1,000 on one Forex trade as margin, they will have exposure of $10,000 in base currency ($1000) = 10 x $1,000 = $10,000 (trade value).
Vantage Trading Accounts offer leverage of up to 30:1, subject to approval. This can allow traders to trade more size and manage their risk more efficiently.
Utilising leverage and trading on margin can help a trader to start CFD trading with a lower initial account balance.
