No big deal, with a 100 :1 leverage (long time Fx standard) the broker borrowed you 99% of trading funds, with a leverage of 30:1 you still get 97% (hope I got that rightLastly, I read that the European regulators are requiring maximum leverage to be lowered significantly across a bunch of different asset classes - how do you guys deal w this? Put up a bigger deposit or just move to a different broker outside EU...feel like if it's move to a different broker I might as well avoid any of the European CFD firms and just go offshore immediately.
Needless to say the higher the leverage, the faster one will learn about margin calls, unless you have some magic fortune crystal ball ?
