Leverage is a type of virtual borrowing that traders can get from brokers. It allows investors to operate with higher amounts and to increase their profit. High leverage means higher buying power and presents wider trading opportunities, but it also presents higher risk.

The leverage rate indicates the maximum amount traders can borrow for each currency unit they deposit. For instance, if a broker trades with a deposit of $100 on a leverage of 1,000:1, they can execute orders for $100,000 instead of $100.

Usually, leverage of about 1,000:1 or up is considered quite high. Recently, the number of forex brokers that offer leverage on the higher end has been increasing. Just two forex brokers offer leverage as high as 3,000:1 – FxGlory and FBS, the former of which announced the news last week.

Also last week, Cyprus-regulated Exness became the first forex broker to offer an unlimited leverage. The no-limit rule applies for the period Mondays -Thursdays for all types of trading accounts the broker offers, while on Fridays and weekends the maximum leverage will be 2,000:1.

While in most legislations there are no limitations to the maximum leverage brokers can offer to clients, in some countries there are certain restrictions. In the US, for instance, the leverage cap is 50:1, while in Poland it is 100:1. In Japan, the maximum leverage rate forex brokers are allowed to offer to individual customers is 25:1.

Meanwhile, in Turkey trading accounts with balance of less than TRY 20,000 cannot offer leverage rates of more than 50:1 for trading of gold and popular currency pairs such as the EUR/USD, USD/TRY, and EUR/TRY, and the maximum leverage for other pairs is 25:1. Leverage for popular pairs traded via accounts with more than TRY 20,000 is set at a maximum 100:1, while for other currency pairs the cap is 50:1.
