Leverage is useful or dangerous? in General Forex Discussion_xx
leverage if the loan is a loan from the broker, the greater the leverage, the margin (loan capital) we will be more related to the number of transactions that we can open, the more the margin, the more we can open the position, why brokers can lend capital to us? yes because we press guarantees which are our deposits, meaning that the guarantee runs out, our account cannot transact again which means our account is MC.

So do you think leverage is useful or dangerous?

Depends on the capital we use if in my opinion. If we only have small capital, then laverage will be very useful, because we can potentially get large profits with small capital. but if our capital is large it is dangerous, because it can provoke our emotions to be greedy, so if large capital should be smaller laverage

indeed, if small capital is better, use big leverage to be able to open many positions, but what you have to remember is the risk is also great.

leverage sometimes helps us to open more positions, but if we are not wise in using it, of course it will be very dangerous. if it's still a beginner I suggest using small leverage to avoid opening large lots

For me it depend how the trader use it, if you have big money you can play with big lot and big lots need big leverage.

I my self use 1:100 lev because sometime we are to greedy to trade, small lev make that greedy moment disappeaf.

if we can control the greed of any leverage, it doesn't matter, but most newbies like me in trading are often greedy, so we need to limit trading in the form of leverage.

I agree for beginners it is better to use small leverage, because most beginners cannot arrange money management properly

Leverage is like a 2-edged sword, downward and sharply upward so if a trader doesn't pay attention to the use of leverage correctly it will hurt himself.

Choose the right leverage, not too small and not too big, adjust it with capital and skills. So leverage can be useful if properly chosen and utilized and leverage can be dangerous if wrong in applying and choosing it.

Leverage is very useful in Lot management settings, the smaller Leverage, the safer our trading account from many open and MC. The opposite is the greater Leverage can be open if the market does not match predictions will cause MC fast.

I think, the greater the leverage, the more dangerous it will be for our account. Because if we don't calculate MM well, it will end with a margin call. So my advice should be to use a maximum leverage of 1: 100. To keep our MM healthy

leverage depends on how people use it if it is used wisely it will be very helpful but if used without any money management, it will be very detrimental

leverage if the loan is a loan from the broker, the greater the leverage, the margin (loan capital) we will be more related to the number of transactions that we can open, the more the margin, the more we can open the position, why brokers can lend capital to us? yes because we press guarantees which are our deposits, meaning that the guarantee runs out, our account cannot transact again which means our account is MC.

So do you think leverage is useful or dangerous?
I think laverage has the benefit of being an account resilience. If laverage is large we can open many transactions simultaneously but the risk increases. And if we use a small number of entry positions that are done a little, the account is quite safe.

I am more inclined to use small laverage only because so that the account is safe from the margin call.

Please permission to comment, in my opinion the use of leverage depends on the trader itself, if someone uses good and correct money management then leverage will function positively, whereas if the trader does not use money management that will either result in loss or even a margin call
