Dynamic Leverage

Skilling uses a dynamic leverage model for “Elective Professional Clients” on FX, Indices and Commodities which automatically adapts to the clients trading CFD positions. For instance, the USD volume per instrument of a client increases, the maximum leverage decreases accordingly as per the below table.

This model is applied per trading symbol, thus if a client has positions open across multiple instruments the leverage will be calculated separately on each symbol.

Tier 1 0-10,000,000 200:1
Tier 2 10,000,000-15,000,000 100:1
