FX and leverage
FX markets are typically traded with leverage to exaggerate the effects of small price movements. By adding leverage, traders can multiply the returns on a trade by as much as 500:1 or more. This multiplication allows retail traders to take part in a market with a standard trade size of $100k to capture larger profits (or losses!) than would be possible without leverage.
