What is leverage?

The leverage is a ratio between the client’s own funds and borrowed funds, which a client borrows from his broker. 1:100 leverage means that for a transaction you must have a investment account with amount 100 times less than the sum of the transaction.

Example: a client chooses the 1:100 leverage and has 200 euros on his account. Leverage 1:100 allows him to buy a contract worth 20.000 euros.
