Our professional margin rates

Professional traders are exempt from regulatory leverage limits in place for retail clients. As a professional trader with us, your margins could decrease by up to 90% – enabling greater flexibility, since you don’t have to commit as much of your capital when you open a trade.

Of course, higher leverage means higher risk as well as higher rewards. It’s important to remember that pro traders forgo some protections given to retail clients.

Take a look at how retail and professional margins compare, along with the equivalent leverage ratios.
