Leverage is a way to make larger investments than the initial risk capital will allow. In Finance, Leverage is borrowing money to supplement existing funds for investments so that the potential positive or negative outcome is magnified and/or enhanced.
In Forex, trading on a leverage allows you to lever up your purchases.
For example, a trader can use 1:500 leverage and can control a $500,000 trade with $1000.
