About Margin Trading


Forex margin trading allows you to purchase more than what you’d usually be able to by utilising leverage. It can amplify your gains (or losses) without the need to divest your existing investments. When used judiciously, it may also help you hedge or diversify your portfolio. Margin trading involves significant risks and traders need to be aware of these before live trading.
