Leverage

 What is leveraged trading?

Trading on leverage means taking exposure to an underlying equity, index, commodity or currency pair for a fraction of the cost of buying the asset outright.  For example, £1,000 invested in a 10 x leveraged product could provide exposure to the equivalent of £10,000 invested directly in the Underlying Asset.  In this simplified example, if the Underlying Asset increased 10% to £11,000, your product would rise by approximately £1,000, translating the 10% rise of the Underlying Asset into a 100% rise in the product. However it also means that if the Underlying moves against you, the losses will be amplified too.
