About Margin

To perform FX (Foreign exchange margin trading), you need to open a trading account of BigBoss. Margin is the amount of collateral that is needed to deposit after the account is opened.

About Leverage

In Forex trading, by using "leverage" on your funds (the margin), you can amplify your funds, and thus trade with the position larger than your actual funds in your trading account.

Benefits of using leverage

Leveraging makes buying and selling a larger position than your actual funds possible.
Controlling the leverage, which is highly efficient in money management, you may have more opportunities to secure large profits.

Risks of using leverage

Leveraging magnifies not only profits but also losses.
Leveraged trading allows you to trade multiple amounts of actual funds, which means even with small movements in the exchange rate, the higher the leverage, the more the asset value of your account will fluctuate.
Your position(s) may be forcibly closed if the market fluctuates in an unfavorable direction to prevent further loss.
Please be aware that leverage can make a big profit with a small amount of money, but on the other hand, there is a possibility of losing the deposited funds.

BigBoss Leverage Rules

At BigBoss, you can open an account with a leverage value of "999:1", and use your funds efficiently.
To avoid the risk of loss due to the high leverage, we have a variable leverage system based on your balance.

The leverage is updated once a day and updated according to the account balance five minutes after the market close time.
*Market close time is 21:05 (Summer Time) or 22:05 (Winter Time) (both GMT +0).
The leverage system applies to Standard accounts, Pro Spread accounts, MASS standard accounts, and cryptocurrency ECN accounts.
