Forex Leverage

Leverage involves borrowing a certain amount of the money needed to invest in something. In the case of forex, that money is usually borrowed from a broker. Forex trading does offer high leverage in the sense that for an initial margin requirement, a trader can build up - and control - a huge amount of money.To calculate margin-based leverage, divide the total transaction value by the amount of margin you are required to put up.Margin-Based Leverage =Total Value of TransactionMargin Required.
