#### What is Dynamic Leverage

Dynamic leverage is a flexible mechanism that allows traders to adapt to the changing market conditions and adjust their trading strategies accordingly. Unlike fixed leverage, where the ratio remains constant, dynamic leverage fluctuates based on the size and type of the positions being traded. This facilitates a more pliable and responsive trading environment.

#### How Dynamic Leverage Works

Dynamic leverage is ingeniously designed to change as per the trading volume. For every position opened, the leverage automatically adjusts, resulting in concurrent changes in margin requirements. Below illustrates the Dynamic Leverage mechanism:

• Automatic adjustment: Leverage changes in real-time, corresponding with the size of the open positions. It aids traders in managing risk and capital more effectively.
• Responsive to market conditions: During significant economic news announcements, dynamic leverage ensures that traders are not overly exposed.

#### Calculating Margin with Dynamic Leverage

How much margin is required to open a long position of 20 lots on EURUSD using Dynamic Leverage?

Consider a Euro account
Contract size 100000
EURUSD Price 1.07213

3 Lots with 1:2000 Leverage = 3*100000/2000=€150
7 Lots with 1:1000 Leverage = 7*100000/1000=€700
10 Lots with 1:500 Leverage = 10*100000/500=€2000

The margin required to open 20 Lots of EURUSD will be
€2850

*Note: The margin required will be displayed in the account’s currency.

Same example for USD trading account.

3 Lots with 1:2000 Leverage = 3*100000*1.07213/2000=\$160.82
7 Lots with 1:1000 Leverage = 7*100000*1.07213/1000=\$750.49
10 Lots with 1:500 Leverage = 10*100000*1.07213/500=\$2144.26
The margin required to open 20 Lots of EURUSD with a USD account will be
\$3055.57

Margin = lots x contract size x rate / leverage size
*Note: The margin required will be displayed in the account’s currency.
