How does indices margin trading work?
Margin trading is a way to trade indices that allows the trader to essentially borrow funds from the platform to increase their trade by a certain amount. Such leveraged trade will only require to deposit a small percentage of the total value of a position – margin.
This means that clients of AAG Limited can trade an amount higher than they deposit, which can then potentially lead to returns that are much higher than would have been with just the initial capital. Note, that leveraged products, such as CFDs, magnify your potential profit – but also your potential loss.
The benefits of indices trading with leverage
Leveraged margin trade allows you to receive higher profits if the position goes the right way. However, the risk is that if the trade is unsuccessful the losses can be magnified too.
Thanks to leverage, traders are not forced to lock too much capital in one trade. This allows them to have more capital free to use in other trades.
Gaining from the market fall
Indices leverage trading example
For example, if a trader opens a short position on the S&P 500 and it falls 10%, using 5x leverage the same drop becomes a 50% profit. A similar spot trade without leverage would result in only 10% profit.
Disclaimer: Margin trading also comes with inherent risks if the position moves against the trade. You should never utilize 100% leverage and never invest more than you can afford to lose.
