- BIB supports high leverage trading through using a sophisticated risk control system and liquidation model. By default, the leverage is set at 20x. You may adjust the leverage according to your needs.
The higher the leverage, the less the margin used to open a position. With the same amount of margin, you can open a bigger-sized position and amplify your profits from the increased position size. But at the same time, your position might be easier to be liquidated as there is not much room for the loss.
The lower the leverage, the more the margin used to open a position. With the same amount of margin, the position size you could open might be relatively limited. You may not amplify the gain from larger position size. However, the position will not be liquidated easily as there is a larger room for the loss.
