Spreads, Margin and Leverage

Trade12 offers its traders excellent features and opportunities, which include tight spreads and high leverage. However, traders are warned of the risk associated with taking high leverage positions on their accounts. With high leverage, traders can bet on an amount valued more than what they could realistically afford.

On a good day, there is nothing to worry about, but when your trade is appears to be going the other direction, then there is cause for concern. This is where the issue of margin coverage comes in. At Trade12, traders can activate various risk management strategies such as margin call opt outs and stop outs.

Margin call is basically when Trade12 informs the investor to top up the account to avoid the possibility of opt outs. Opt out is when Trade12 closes the open position after the account level falls below the minimum set by the broker.

As for spreads, it all depends on the account the client opens, but basically most currencies attract a spread of 8.8 pips to 4.5 pips.
