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: from 19:00 GMT +0 on Friday through 23:00 GMT +0 on Sunday the margin requirements for newly opened positions are calculated based on maximum leverage of 1:200.
|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.
Important: closing a hedging order during the period of increased margin requirements is treated as opening a new transaction. This will result in the withholding of additional margin corresponding to the amount of the closed transaction involved in hedging. The margin is calculated based on the increased margin requirements and is distributed proportionally among the open transactions that involve the hedged financial instrument.
In accordance with the Client Agreement, margin requirements may change before weekends and holidays.
3 hours before the forex market closes (Friday, 19:00 GMT +0), margin requirements are increased due to the fact that the margin for new positions is calculated based on maximum leverage of 1:200.
Within 2 hours after the opening of the market (Sunday, 23:00 GMT +0), the margin on positions opened during the period of increased margin requirements is recalculated based on the client's actual leverage.
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 "News" section.
