I only day trade forex futures on CME. From years of experience, incuding watching most futures traders fail, I believe that it is imperative to adjust leverage to both the market conditions and the condition of one's biology and resulting psychology on a particular day. Thus, on one day I may utilize over 100-1 on say a Euro, Yen, or Pound full-sized contract. But on another day with increase external and/or internal risk, I may opt for only utilizing a micro contract or two, and thus I take the leverage down to 10 or 20 to 1.

I use a leverage ranging from 10-1 to 100-1. Leverage is important, but not as important as the portion of your account that is used for open positions.

hey everyone! I have a question about the leverage! I have a leverage 500:1, but i am not very clear about this amount. Is it good or bad? Common sense tells me that higher leverage is better, but I want to clarify this thought with someone who knows better. Thank you!

It depends how much volume a person are trading. Anything above 100:1 isn't the kiss of death. I use 100:1
