Hello, I'm new to the IG platform. Does IG provide the ability to use leverage during trades? and how do you use them on a live account.

Hi, leverage on IG is expressed as Margin, most EU regulated asset types have a margin requirement of 5% which is equal to leverage of 20:1.

ok, but how to use the leverage? 

by increasing or decreasing the position size, so if you want to use max margin (leverage) you increase the position size until you have a minimal amount of available margin left, to use the minimum amount decrease the position size down the broker minimum.
