Leverage financed with credit

High stakes high gains and more pains

Business is a war ground of opportunities, where high risk takers make millions or become paupers, while the average ones come out as mediocre, but still making gradual money. Since the time Leverage was introduced into the markets a ray of hope has emerged from the cloudy sky for masses and small organizations to capitalize on the growing or falling economy of a country. Leverage account is a similar kind of future and options trading account which visualized in the stock markets and multiple commodities exchange markets. The only difference over here is the commodities exchanged, the product or the share is replaced by currency.

For proper comprehension of leverage market in forex, one needs to have clear conception of the term margin. Margin is the percentage of money you need to deposit into your leverage account with your broker, so that he can give you a limit on the monetary specifications for which you are entitled to play with.

For instance if an individual has $ 10000 for single standard forex slot, then by taking a margin of 0.25% he is entitled to buy forex slots worth of $40000, which gives him an opportunity to focus this sum on 4 other slots at margin or security of just $2500. The gains can be enormous on gigantic number of slots bought, but at the same time we should not forget that the losses incurred on the individual and his investments can at the same time reach astronomical levels. In other words, it is a two way bus which can either go both ways, the only thing which matters is the time at which you boarded it, because in the end you come to realize whether it was going your way or not.

However, this does not give the liberty to an individual to keep on trading even at the face of constant losses. If the security deposit fails to meet the losses then a margin call is given to you for depositing more money to hold the deal or sell it at market price, an ultimatum of one day to few hours are given at extremely desperate hours failure to comply will automatically consequence into selling of your currency slot at market rate so that the losses are covered at the right time.

However, the rates of margin allowed depends on your broker and the polices applied by his firm. There are instances when a broker may vary the margin call period and may increase or decrease the margins as well all base lined by the dynamics of the market.

Forex leverage is guided by three factors,

1) Sixth sense, which is nothing but a psychological jargon commonly found in big businessmen, gamblers and brokers.

2) Tips, if you are well connected and trust your tippers then it is best to hold on to your deal till the markets bounce back favorably in your direction.

3) Home work, there are those individuals who have cautiously done their home work; they have studied all the aspects of the currency they are dealing with and the social and political climates conducive for the economy of that country. Unless the country is faced with unprecedented events such analysis are not bound to fail.

One thing which is a common element in all the three aspects, and that is risk of uncertainty, which consequences into elevated monetary gains or losses. These days people are in great hurry to become rich overnight and with leverage account they tend to focus their energies on buying all the slots at once, where as the key is to buy slots in gradual and cautious steps so that even if the earlier slots were bought at a higher price band the next one bought at a lower price band can virtually lower the cost price by simple average. While averaging your slots price is a smart move on the part of the investor, but a cautious eagles eye be placed on the volatility of the market, because once you are consumed of the limit leverage account has given, you need to put in a good amount of capital in order to sustain new losses, at such an unfortunate time , what you literally need to do is to close your trade and wait for an innovative opportunity do not get perplexed or bewildered if you incurred any losses even after averaging your slots as forex is a dynamic market and will provide you with tardy instances and opportunities to cut down your losses and capitalize on your gains.
