The maximum leverage in Valutrades amounts to 1:500. This is a very advantageous offer among many brokers. The key advantage is that traders can start trading with minimal capital and multiply it with the help of a leverage at the earliest time possible. However, you should remember that a leverage increases the amount of a loss. So, we advise you to study the theory of using a leverage before you start real trading.
