Dynamic Leverage

Skilling uses a dynamic leverage model on FX, Indices, Commodities and Shares which automatically adapts to the clients trading CFD positions. For instance, if 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.
