Leverage Rates at GO

By default, all client accounts are set up using a leverage rate of 30:1. Please consider which leverage rate is appropriate for your needs. It is important to understand the concept of leverage and how it may impact on your trading. According to ESMA guidelines, the leverage limits are listed below.

Please Note:

Certain currencies attract a higher margin rate irrespective of your account leverage. Some currencies may have a fixed leverage rate, while others (such as exotic currencies), may require up to five (5) times the margin rate of a major currency.
