What is Leverage?
Leverage means the principle of leverage.
Using the principle of leverage, you can lift a large stone with a small power.
In the forex world, it refers to a system that allows you to make large trades with a small amount of margin (money).
Leverage is often expressed as “100 times”, “100x” or “1:100”.
In the case of 100 times leverage, it is possible to trade 100 times the amount of margin.
If your margin is $100, you can trade $10,000.
A $100,000 margin allows you to trade $10,000, and a $100,000 margin allows you to trade $10,000,000.
Differences in Required Margin due to differences in leverage
The Required Margin can be calculated using the following formula
Required Margin = Number of lots × Market price ÷ Leverage
Let’s calculate exactly how much the required margin changes with different leverage.
For example, let’s assume the following trade
Currency pair: EURUSD
Number of trades: 1 lot (=100,000 currency)
Market price: 1 EURO = 1.200 USD
100,000 EUR × 1.200 ÷ 1 ＝ 120,000 USD
100,000 EUR × 1.200 ÷ 100 ＝ 1,200 USD
100,000 EUR × 1.200 ÷ 400 ＝ 300 USD
100,000 EUR × 1.200 ÷ 777＝ 154 USD
Thus, if you take advantage of AXIORY maximum 777x leverage, you can trade 100,000 Euros for only $154.

|Account Type||Max Leverage|
Restricted by account balance
The maximum leverage of AXIORY depends on your account balance.
Up to $100,000 account balance, you can trade with 400 times leverage.
After $100,000, the leverage increases to 300x up to $200,000.
Above $200,000, the leverage is automatically limited to 200x.
However, $100,000 is a fairly large margin amount, so this should not be a problem for the average trader.
|Account Balance||Maxx Leverage|
|$0 ～ $100,000||1:400|
|$100,001 ～ $200,000||1:300|

Especially in the world of forex, people focus on the high leverage, but the higher leverage is not the better.
Leverage is a double-edged sword.
If you trade a product with high volatility with full leverage, a small price reversal will result in an immediate loss.
This is not a recommendation, but rather a principle of leveraged trading.
- Follow strictly the money management rules
- Understand the margin requirements and the amount per pips
- Adjust the number of lots and leverage
When you increase the leverage, the amount of fluctuation per pips becomes larger.
It is necessary to decide beforehand how much you can bear in case the price moves against your expectations. After properly planning your trading strategy, prepare sufficient funds and decide on the number of lots to order.
At this time, you can also change the leverage in advance to reduce the risk of loss cutting in case of unexpected price movements.
This means that rather than operating with 1000 times leverage, you can reduce the risk to one tenth by using 100 times leverage.
