Our clients can use any amount of leverage when trading on the forex market: from 1:2 to 1:2000*. This provides the freedom to choose trading strategies to traders with very different deposit sizes.
EXNESS leverage depends on the type of trading account and the volume of funds it contains. Margin requirements increase when the funds available in a client's account increase. This is due to the increasing costs of hedging open orders. As a result, leverage is changing as well.
Important: for the 5 hours before forex market closing, margin requirements are calculated based on the maximum leverage of 1:200. For the 3 hours following forex market opening, margin requirements are recalculated based on the actual amount of funds in the account or the amount of leverage used by the client.
|Equity, USD||Maximum forex leverage|
|Cent, Mini, Classic||ECN|
|0 — 2999||1:2000||1:200|
|3 000 — 9 999||1:1000||1:200|
|10 000 — 19 999||1:600||1:200|
|20 000 — 49 999||1:400||1:200|
|50 000 — 199 999||1:200||1:200|
|200,000 or more||1:100||1:100|
Please note. Any change in the value of the financial leverage may take some time and require repeated authorization in the terminal or its reboot to refresh the parameters displayed therein, depending on the value of the leverage.
When the amount of funds (equity) in a client's account changes, the leverage changes automatically.
In accordance with the Client Agreement, margin requirements may change before weekends and holidays.
For the 5 hours before forex market closing, margin requirements are calculated based on the maximum leverage of 1:200. This rule was introduced to reduce the potential losses our clients may incur in the event of a price gap at market opening.
This rule also applies on holidays. Margin requirements in this case are calculated based on the maximum leverage of 1:200 or less. EXNESS employees inform clients about this by posting a corresponding message on the website in the "Company News" section.
