What is leverage?

Leverage means using a small collateral amount for opening a large transaction – for example a 100:1 leverage allows you to open a transaction of $100,000 using collateral of $1,000 only. Your leverage determines both your potential loss and your potential gain. Trading with the use of leverage can maximize profits as well as losses.

For example; in the transaction of $100,000 using only $1,000 in collateral, a 1% movement in the market may lead to a 100% gain or to a 100% loss; leveraging is what makes the Forex market both dangerous and exciting.
