    But if you have 25 bonus in your account,the most of the trade that you can`t do.
    If your leverage is 1:500,that you can trade all the exchange .

    If you can make sure that you will make pips in the trading, you'd better use 1:500.

    The best thing you can do is add to the $25 so you can not only trade all pairs, but have some margin to cushion yourself against losses.

    when using higher leverages, you need to keep more and more margin to avoid forced close of your trade

    two-eyed knife...
    1:100 is better.
    1:200 is maximum for me

    remember this:
    you should give the swing for the breath.

    using forex is too risky, i think the answer to this question is subjective. since everything depends on your level of knowledge and experience.

    an higher leverage can bring big risks but big gains too.
    low leverage the opposite.

    so it all depends on you. personally i prefer 1:200. even when i am not so noob in forex but that level makes me feel good.

    for manual trading 1:100 is optimal, but for computer trading 1:500 is good, imho

    you are wright and the best leverage is 1.200 if you have between 100$-200$

    and if you have 1000$ the 1.500 is the best one

    For me I'm using 1:500, I'm a little aggresive eh! But could you imagine, using this leverage, I've grown my account 400% in 1 month time! And as it grow again, I would be a little more careful on my trades, money is still money.

    if you are newbie best leverage is 1:20 (maximum) attend no 200 , 1:20
    if a trader had a 100% winner method 1:500 leverage is best
    and totally increase your leverage with your account grow
