How does Nikkei 225 trading with leverage work?

Margin trading is a well known and popular way for traders to make trades on the Nikkei 225, as well as other indices and markets, and involves using less personal capital for a trade and rather borrowing from Sterlinghive Exchange to magnify potential profits.

Margin trading means you do not have to deposit the full amount of the position you want open and rather you borrow these funds to leverage the position. If the trade is successful, the profits are also magnified, but if your trade on the Nikkei 225 goes the wrong way, your losses can also be greater.

The benefits of Nikkei 225 trading with leverage

  • DiversificationMargin trading means there is more available traders' capital left on the account which can be used to open new positions. Diversification allows to reduce market risk.
  • Gaining from the market fall.Margin trading also allows traders to open long and short positions in order to profit from both growing and falling market.

Nikkei 225 leverage trading example

For example, If a trader takes a long position of $2,000 on the Nikkei 225 and it rises by 10%, using 5x leverage the same rise becomes a 50% profit, or $1,000. A similar spot trade without leverage would result in only 10% profit, or $200.

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.
