Blackwell Global Leverage
Leverage allows clients to hold a larger position than the initial cash deposit, and to increase the value of their underlying investment. Leverage increases the potential of high returns when the market moves in their favor. However, leverage will also act against clients when the market moves in the opposite direction to their prediction. According to UK or Cyprus regulations, when trading in Europe, foreign exchange can use maximum leverage of 1:30, cryptocurrencies use the leverage of 1:5, and commodities use the leverage of 1:10. Pro accounts are not subject to leverage caps, which ESMA believes could lead to poor outcomes.
Spreads & Commissions
Standard account trading costs are built into Blackwell spread, while typical ECN account spread for EUR/USD is 0.3 pips along with a 9$ round commission per trade, but the ECN account requires more balance to maintain. Overnight interest will be considered a cost, and the fees charged for overnight open positions will be more than daytime positions.
