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.

    • Interesting data from the latest weekly PHE covid report download (as highlighted in the 'UK Vaccination Programme Part 1'. (article linked several posts above)   Attendance to emergency care and deaths from Covid (Delta)   6 months 1 Feb to 29 Aug 2021Unvaxxed     219,716Vaxxed         222,693     (27,993 + 80,877 + 113,823)   So obviously the vaccines do nothing to reduce infection and illness.But when looking at deaths alone the vaxxed are worse off. 68 per cent of covid deaths when including the partially ‘vaccinated’; while the ‘unvaccinated’ made up less than 30 per cent, when the vaxxed are less than 60% of the population.   So the Vaccines don't work they just make things worse. Reminder that when the drug companies said their vaccines had an efficacy of 95% what they meant was the difference between 0.88% (next to nothing) and 0.04% (also next to nothing). But that was against the now extinct Alpha not the now dominant vaccine resistant Delta (and all subsequent variants).   https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1014926/Technical_Briefing_22_21_09_02.pdf
    • The DMA platform is a special download so you would know if you had it. The IG web based platform as used by most clients is as described below.
    • @Caseynotesthanks for the reply. How do I know if I am trading at DMA platform or any other.
