Hello Deriv Community,
We intend to provide our services to a wide range of clients so that even those who don’t have a lot of initial capital to trade could try trading our products with small capital to manage their risk well. With that being said, Please note that the leverage for your MT5 account cannot be changed. Each MT5 account will have different leverage and offer different assets, please click on the following link to find more information: Deriv App | Deriv
Please refer to our margin requirement to calculate your leverage accordingly: Online trading with Deriv | Simple. Flexible. Reliable.
Nevertheless, it’s totally up to you to control your exposure and there are ways to avoid non-necessary risks:
- Use smaller trading volumes and deposit a larger amount of funds - this way you can reduce your “factual” leverage.
- Always use stop losses to manage your risk efficiently.
- Please refer to our margin requirement to calculate your leverage accordingly: Trading tools | Swap, pip, and margin calculators | Deriv
Hope this information helps
