Leverage & Contract Size in Forex Education_xx
Forex brokers usually have leverage in forex trading.
The function of leverage, is that a relatively small increase in funds can make transactions with a much larger contract value.

Example:
Brokers who apply 1: 100 leverage, then you only need a fund of $ 100 to make a transaction worth $ 10,000. The $ 100 money is called margin, while the transaction value of $ 10,000 is called Contract Size. That is, the capital you need is only 1%.

the advantage of trading with a leverage system is indeed like that, the term we can get capital many times over.
but it's the same if we suffer losses, the value will also be many times over.
so it's wise to use leverage and lots, because if you don't calculate it, you might experience MC.

therefore I just want to share the leverage and size contract education information so that novices have nothing wrong with their understanding and misuse.

in my opinion it's not a trap.
depending on how we choose the leverage, it must always be adjusted between leverage and our capital.

leverage and margin usage here must be known and understood by traders in order to be able to apply MM properly.

using 1: 1000 leverage in my opinion less challenging I prefer 1: 500 leverage. profit is bigger and the MM level is not too high.

if I prefer 1: 200 leverage, in my opinion it is more ideal with moderate capital.

determine the leverage is better calculated first how much capital you have, leverage should not be too large or too small.
and also see the contract size of the broker first, because each broker has a different contract size.

But if it is associated with leverage, a contract size or lot will require a larger margin if the leverage is smaller and it is not free.

if using 1: 300 leverage with a capital of $ 500, I can trade like using $ 15,000. very large can double the capital. can profit a lot and also can lose a lot.
