Leverage : Introduction
The leverage is a business of taking an extra risk for potential reward from the minimum available resources. In trading terms, the leverage is an additional exposure margin to a trade provided by broker for day traders. An exchange listed broker to gain more commissions provides traders more exposure buy and sell securities.
The three clauses on which day traders get leverage are as follows:
- The day traders get additional leverage with a condition of auto square off for the specified trading day.
- All the positions held will be squared off automatically in case of day trader leverages and loses 70-80% of the existing capital.
- The timer based square off will be set by the broker prior to 15 minutes within the trading day.
