Leverage and rules for its usage for Odin Forex clients

In 2012, Odin Forex made ​​significant changes to the conditions of how it provides financial leverage for Forex Micro accounts. If the amount of client funds in such an account does not exceed 100 USD (or its equivalent in another currency), then this account is eligible for a maximum financial leverage of 1:1000. If the amount of funds in the Forex Micro account is in the 100 USD to 1,000 USD range (or its equivalent in another currency), the maximum amount of financial leverage available to clients will be 1:500. Such a significant reduction in margin requirements allows traders to effectively implement a wide range of trading strategies.

Margin requirements increase when the funds available in a client's account increase. This is due to the increasing costs of hedging open orders. Consequently, the size of the provided leverage changes.

The company establishes the following maximum value of financial leverage depending on the amount of funds in the account:

Leverage Balance Maximum leverage
0-99$ 1:1000
100-999$ 1:500
