# What is dynamic leverage?

Dynamic leverage allows you to trade using a smaller capital and is automatically adjusted according to the volume of your trade.

# Dynamic leverage with XS

XS uses a dynamic leverage model that automatically adapts to the clients trading positions. As the volume per Instrument of a client increases the maximum leverage offered decreases accordingly.

XS offers dynamic leverage up to 1:2000 on multiple asset classes and different account types.

Our dynamic leverage model is done per trading instrument. As such, if a client has positions open across multiple instruments the leverage will be calculated separately on each symbol.

Dynamic Leverage does not apply to some asset classes or account types. For more details please check our contact specifications page.

We apply risk management measures to protect positions from possible high volatility during key events and specific time periods which impact the general volatility of the market.

Higher amounts of margin are required to open an order during these periods which are known as HMR (higher margin requirements) periods.

The HMR periods includes 15 minutes before major news releases until 10 minutes after, and 2 hours before markets closing on Friday and for 1 hour after market opening on Monday.

The maximum leverage available for new orders opened during HMR periods is set to 1:200 automatically.

Please note that the restrictions will apply only to positions that are opened within these periods. The margin requirements of existing positions will not be affected.

Closing an open hedged position during HMR periods can fail if there is insufficient free margin to cover the higher margin requirements, specifically the higher margin requirements on the latter half of a hedged order at the time of closing.
