In order to apply leverage, there is another rule, and it has to do with the Exness margin requirement. Margin requirement will vary with the level of leverage, so the higher the leverage, the further down the margin calls are.

The formula for calculating margin:
Margin = Lots x Contract Size / Leverage

Lots: 5
Contract size: 100000 dollars
Leverage: 1:1000
Margin = 5 x 100,000 / 1000 = 500 dollars

One of the trading strategies that involves frequent changes in leverage is trading on the news. This strategy is based on the use of economic news for trading operations. The strategy is popular because it potentially brings a lot of profit as economic news causes significant movements in the market.

Before the release of important news, traders can increase leverage to take advantage of the expected significant market movements. This maximizes the potential profits from news spikes.

If the US employment report is expected, a trader may increase leverage to 1:200 or higher to maximize potential profits from the expected movement.
After News Releases

When to reduce leverage:
After the news is released, when the market begins to stabilize, traders may reduce leverage to minimize risk. This is especially important if the market is not moving in the predicted direction.
If a report is less significant than expected and the market begins to correct, a trader may reduce leverage to 1:50 or 1:100 to limit potential losses.
