Hi @PipEvangelist,  the leverage factor is related to your bet size and margin amount. Max leverage of 20:1 (UK) equates to a 5% minimum margin requirement for a trade for example.

If you were looking to use the  maximum leverage available you would increase bet size (£/point on SB or number of contracts on cfd) to the point where the margin requirement for the trade maxed out in relation to your account size though remember this is initial margin and if the trade went negative you would need to add funds to the account. 

Conversely if you wanted to trade with minimum leverage then you would lower the bet size down to the platform minimum.

The margin requirement is calculated on the deal ticket for you so you can experiment with different amounts to find what best suits your risk tolerance in relation to your account size.

Hey, 

Thanks for your first post. 

The leveraged we offer is fixed. Unfortunately it can't be changed.
