What is trading Risk Level & Invested Amount

Risk level, also known as leverage, is a temporary loan given to the trader by the broker. Using Risk Level you are able to open a trade of a larger size than the actual amount of funds you invest in it. Leverage is presented in the form of a multiplier that shows how much larger than the invested amount* an open position is.

For example, in order to open a $10,000 trade you can invest 25$ with a leverage of 1×400: $25×400=$10,000.

*Invested Amount is the actual amount that you invest in a trade.

Example

Trade Size Risk Level Invested Amount
$20,000 USD X400 $50
$10,000 USD X50 $200
$20,000 USD X50 $400
