How does it work?

Leverage is one of the key components behind trading Forex. It is expressed as a ratio and works directly in hand with the margin which is set by FP Markets. FP Markets’ standard leverage on accounts is 100:1 and therefore if you opt to have greater leverage e.g. 200:1 the margin required to open and hold a Margin FX contract drops (in this case by half). For this reason margin based trading can be an attractive tool for clients to gain greater exposure to the Forex market. Of course in additional to greater profit potential, you will also face the risk of losing more so it is important to assess your personal risk appetite.

At FP Markets we have specific leverage bands in place to assist in determining the leverage a client is allowed on their trading account. The below table is there to guide you on

See an example of

how Leverage works

Example: Trader A - 10k

Example: Trader A

Example: Trader A has $5000 USD – If Trader A has an account leverage of 10:1 and they wish to use $1000 on one trade as margin, they will have exposure of $10,000 in base currency ($1000) = 10 x $1000 = $10,000 (trade value).

Example: Trader B - 100k

Example: Trader B

Example: Trader B has $5000 USD – If Trader B has an account leverage of 100:1 and they wish to use $1000 on one trade as margin, they will have exposure of $100,000 in base currency ($1000) = 100 x $1000 = $100,000 (trade value).
