Flexible Leverage from 1:1 up to 1000:1

At Fulbright Securities Limited clients have the flexibility to trade by using the same margin requirements and leverage from 1:1 to 1000:1.

About Margin

Margin is the amount of collateral to cover any credit risks arising during your trading operations.Margin is expressed as the percentage of position size (e.g. 5% or 1%), and the only real reason for having funds in your trading account is to ensure sufficient margin. On a 1% margin, for instance, a position of $1,000,000 will require a deposit of $10,000.For Forex, Gold and Silver, new positions can be opened if the margin requirement for the new positions is equal or less than the free margin of the account. When hedging, positions can be opened even when the margin level is below 100% because the margin requirement for hedged positions is Zero.For all other instruments, new positions can be opened if the margin requirement for the new positions is equal or less than the free margin of the account. When hedging, margin requirement for the hedged position is equal to 50%. New hedged positions can be opened if the final margin requirements will be equal or less than the total equity of the account.

Cryptocurrencies Dynamic Margin

At Fulbright Securities Limited, leverage on Cryptocurrency CFDs is dynamic and adapts automatically based on the volume traded on each instrument. This means that, as the trade volume per instrument increases, the margin percentage also increases, relevant to the dynamic leverage value of each instrument.Also, it is important to note that margin calculations are done per instrument traded. So, when a client has open positions on multiple instruments, the margin is calculated separately on each.In the examples below, you can see how dynamic margin is calculated. Kindly note that the values in the tables are for illustrative purposes only and should not be used for making trading calculations.

Lots Dynamic Margin Percentage Leverage

Lots Dynamic Margin Percentage Leverage
3 0.4% Lots * Contract Size * OpenPrice * MarginPercentage = 3 * 1 * 50000 * 0.4% = 600 USD
Total Margin = 600 USD

About Leverage

Using leverage means that you can trade positions larger than the amount of money in your trading account. Leverage amount is expressed as a ratio, for instance 50:1, 100:1, or 500:1. Assuming that you have $1,000 in your trading account and you trade ticket sizes of 500,000 USD/JPY, your leverage will equate 500:1.How would it be possible to trade 500 times the amount you have at your disposal? At Fulbright Securities Limited you have a free short-term credit allowance whenever you trade on margin: this enables you to purchase an amount that exceeds your account value. Without this allowance, you would only be able to buy or sell tickets of $1,000 at a time.Fulbright Securities Limited shall monitor the leverage ratio applied to clients’ accounts at all times and reserves the right to apply changes to and amend the leverage ratio (i.e. decrease the leverage ratio), on its sole discretion and without any notice on a case by case basis, and/or on all or any accounts of the client as deemed necessary by Fulbright Securities Limited.

Fulbright Securities Limited Leverage

Depending on the account type you open at Fulbright Securities Limited, you can choose the leverage on a scale from 1:1 to 1000:1. Margin requirements do not change during the week, nor do they widen overnight or at weekends. Moreover, at Fulbright Securities Limited you have the option to request either the increase or the decrease of your chosen leverage.

Leverage Risk

On the one hand, by using leverage, even from a relatively small initial investment you can make considerable profit. On the other hand, your losses can also become drastic if you fail to apply proper risk management.This is why Fulbright Securities Limited provides a leverage range that helps you choose your preferred risk level. At the same time, we do not recommend trading close to a leverage of 1000:1 due to the high risk it involves.
