    Default Floating leverage ?

    What do you think about floating leverage ? I see that as some extra flexibility but was wondering what more experienced traders could think about it.

    Yep, my broker is offering 1:100, enough for a newbie like myself, but know they are talking about this floating leverage thing. Sounds to me like the sword is getting sharper

    Big leverage give u space to use only small margin to open pair
    Small leverage u need big margin to open pair.
    Big leverage good for client who have small capital.

    All leverage for me are same but i like to use big leverage.
    The important thing in forex money management, discipline and patient. Even if u use small leverage u can get stop out (S.O) or losing big money if u don't have money management on u trading plan.

    Discipline follow u plan strategy example if u already loss the maximum percentage u can loss in 1 days, u need to stop trade or u already reach target u must stop also.

    Patient, make PO or OP after u systems analysis giving u 99% correct signal.

    Money management, use only 2-4% amount u can loss for u S/L in 1 days Why i said loss, because every trade the loss more easier than win, so to be prepare about that, u need to limit the amount u can loss in 1 days. So u can enjoy trade from 100% amount u deposit for a month (what ever amount u put). Let say u put 2% amount daily can loss, so from that percentage amount u have 50 days trading days (2% x 50 days = 100%) to know u system well. If u already win that days, n reach target u need to stop even u not loss yet. If u trade always loss 20 days straight, its maybe something wrong with u system or entering point. So u can analysis back u system to know where u make a mistake, so u have another 30 days more to trade using 1 fund . but for me if u system give 10 straight losses, u need to check n analysis u system back for sure.

    Its better to get profit 50usd at the end of month ...from u losing 1000usd at the end of month
    At the end of month must Profit. Profit-Loss = Profit ...even 2usd ..that mean u already win, don't chase big movement to get 1kusd but finally at the end of month u still losing 500usd .
    Forex to risky but if u can manage how to make profit u will win, but if u want to rich fast in short time, u will loss fast.

    Sorry all..its just from me-(newbies in forex) opinion.

    Thanks

    Yep, thx too for the money management lesson. I won't go into forex to become super rich but, at least initially, my goal will be to earn more than I will lose.

    So money management is a key topic and a good understanding of all kinds of leverage is key too.

    1:30? I agree too much leverage can be risky but some leverage, as said somewhere else on this thread, can help to trade with not that much capital. And 1:30 seems too small to me, you could get prevented to enter too much deals.

    Hi Forum:
    Floating leverage increases the freedom for traders and the investment possibilities; but It also increases the risk, because sometimes, beginners get blind in the pip career and they take too risky decisions.
