Leverage

Leverage allows investors to command a much larger investment than their capital will allow, thus allowing them to potentially increase their returns while only investing a percentage of the overall value of the asset in question. One of the most commonly employed types of leverage is the use of mortgages that allow home-buyers to purchase properties that are worth more than the amount initially invested. FxPro offers its clients leverage up to 1:500.
