Margin requirements and the leverage rules

JustMarkets allows its clients to trade on leverage from 1:1 to 1:3000. Thanks to this opportunity, our clients have an advantage – they can apply various trading strategies regardless of the size of their deposit.

Pay attention to the fact that the leverage conditions are different for different types of trading accounts.

Dynamic margin requirements

The margin requirement for your account is tied to the amount of leverage you use. Changing leverage will cause margin requirements to change. Just as spreads may change depending on market conditions, the amount of leverage available to you can also vary. This can happen for a number of reasons that are explained below.


Equity, USD Maximum leverage*
0 – 999 1:3000
1,000 – 4,999 1:2000
5,000 – 39,999 1:1000
40,000 or more 1:500

*Trading instruments can have different maximum leverage according to their specifications.

Economic news

From 10 minutes before the publication of high-impact economic news until 5 minutes after, margin requirements for new positions opened on affected trading instruments are calculated with reduced maximum leverage. You can find out when major economic news is due for release on our Economic calendar.

Rollovers, weekends and holidays

An increased margin rule also applies to some trading instruments during rollovers, weekends, and public holidays. These instruments during this period are subject to lower leverage.
