Leverage can significantly increase your profits, but involves greater risks to your capital. Unlike many brokers, Swissquote caps leverage at 100:1. If you are new to trading, we advise you to lower your leverage until you are confident in your trading strategy. If the currency underlying a trade moves in a direction you were not expecting, leverage will greatly increase your potential losses.
To reduce the risk of losses, we advise you to adopt a strict trading style that includes the use of stop and limit orders.
