WHAT IS LEVERAGE?

 WHAT IS LEVERAGE?

Financial success is almost always accomplished through the use of leverage. I sum up the definition of leverage in four simple words: “Doing more with less.”
In the previous section, we talked about how the value of 1 pip dramatically increases when a trader trades a standard lot or even a mini lot. In reality, not many retail traders are able to fork out $100,000 or $10,000 to trade one
standard or one mini lot.
This is where the forex broker steps in. Simply put, the business model of forex brokers is to provide retail traders with leverage so that they do not need to lay out the entire sum of $100,000 to trade one standard lot.
Let’s see how this works. If the broker provides you with leverage of 100:1, instead of $100,000, all you need to do is to pay $1,000 to trade one standard lot.
Sometimes the $1,000 is referred to as margin. It is also the basis of how brokers refer to our trading account as a margin account.
Margin basically allows a trader to purchase a contract without the need to provide the full value of the contract. In the example, $1,000 was the margin required for you to trade $100,000 on a leverage of 100:1.
Using a simple formula:
Margin required = Lot size/Leverage
Hence, for the example:

Similarly, if the broker provides you with leverage of 50:1, instead of $100,000, all you need to do is to lay out $2,000 to trade one standard lot.
Margin percentage in this case is then 2%. In summary, the higher the leverage provided by the broker, the less you need to pay out to trade one standard lot.
