Change Leverage

bg bg bg

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.

Reduce risk by using stop and limit orders

To reduce the risk of losses, we advise you to adopt a strict trading style that includes the use of stop and limit orders.
