How to apply leverage on XM and how it is calculated and set up

How to leverage XM

Leverage is [the number of positions held (= number of lots)]. The amount of leverage is determined by the amount of positions held.

The higher the number of lots and the more positions you hold, the higher your leverage relative to your margin. Conversely, if you reduce the number of lots and the number of positions you hold, there is no leverage.

Leverage can be described as [increasing or decreasing the amount of position (number of lots)]!

XM's account leverage is up to 888 times. In contrast, the leverage actually applied when holding a position is called [effective leverage]. Traders need to control their effective leverage from the amount of positions they hold.

How leverage is calculated

Leverage can be determined using the calculation method below.

Leverage = trade size x account currency conversion rate / margin requirement

However, this formula may not be clear to some... especially if you are new to XM.

The following table can therefore be used.

This table shows the leverage gained when entering with one lot of 100,000 currency in a standard account with one lot of 100,000 currency.

leverage Transaction size (fixed) Currency conversion rate required margin
888 times 100,000 110 yen to the dollar JPY 12,387.
200x. 100,000 110 yen to the dollar 55,000.
100 times 100,000 110 yen to the dollar 110,000.
50 times 100,000 110 yen to the dollar JPY 220,000.

The important fields are [leverage] and [margin requirement].

For example, if you enter with 1 lot when your account balance is JPY 12,387, the leverage is Max 888x. When your account balance is JPY 110,000.1 lotThe leverage is 100 times if the entry is made at

Why XM's leverage setting of 888x is recommended.

Because it works best with scalping.

Scalping is a trading style in which traders repeatedly buy and sell in short periods of time, accumulating small profits.

Low trading volumes mean that profits are negligible, so leverage is required to increase trading volumes.

Some forex companies prohibit scalping, but XM does not.

Traders who mainly scalp should set their leverage to 888 times.

The higher the leverage, the more loss-cutters you can withstand.

XM will confirm a loss if a forced loss cut is triggered, but the higher the leverage, the better able you are to withstand the loss cut.

Let's compare the assumptions: account deposit of 100,000 yen, USD/JPY 100 for 50,000 currency, and loss-cut level of 20% or less of margin maintenance.

100 times leverage 400 times leverage. 800 times leverage
required margin 50,000. JPY 12,500. JPY 6,250.
Account balance that triggers loss-cut. JPY 12,500. 2,500 yen 1,250 yen
Number of pips that can be withstood until loss-cut 175 pips 195 pips 197 pips

The higher the leverage, the greater the number of pips allowed before a forced loss cut.
