What is the difference between Margin and Leverage?

Updated 2 months ago

Leverage is the ratio between the amount of money you really have and the amount of money you can trade, which is usually expressed as 1:X.
Margin is the amount that is required to buy or sell a specific instrument.
This varies based on asset class and tiers level.

Please note that the higher the volume traded based on each asset class, the lower the leverage, meaning the higher the margin is required.
Please refer to the ‘Leverage’ page under the ‘Trading’ section of our website.
