True Leverage

Developer: FXCM

Our research of millions of trades has shown that our most successful traders use less than 10:1 leverage (Read Traits of Successful Traders.) Leverage is a double edged sword and can significantly increase losses as well as profits. If you want to make sure you follow our guide’s principles on leverage, you need a great way to keep an eye on your leverage.

Introducing the True Leverage app, a quick and easy way to get real-time notice of your leverage right on your chart.

True Leverage is a statistical indicator that displays the total amount of leverage you are using on your account. The indicator appears in the corner of your chart and will display in one of three colors, depending on the amount of leverage used (i.e., orange between 5x and 10x leverage).

Indicator color is:

  • Green – Leverage is less than 5:1
  • Orange – Leverage is between 5:1 and 10:1
  • Red – Leverage is greater than 10:1

If 25x or greater leverage is used, a High Leverage Warning flashes.

Keep a close eye on your leverage in the market with True Leverage.
