Leverage

The percentage of the money you are allowed to “borrow” from your broker in order to open a position. Think of it as a “loan” from your broker. It helps traders to trade higher volumes with a smaller amount of money. The more you leverage your money, the higher the potential for profit, and the risk of loss from trades.
