FBK Markets Leverage

Leverage involves borrowing a certain amount of money needed to invest. We borrow our clients’ money by offering flexible leverage from 1:100 to 1:1000 which gives the client full control of how far they wish to risk. We allow you to trade a huge amount of money with just a small balance, which is possible because of our minimum deposit of R100, Ultra-low spread and Flexible leverage.

Leverage Risk

Using high leverage comes with risks, it’s only good you can make considerable profits with just a small initial deposit but you need to remember, the higher the leverage, the higher the returns and so are the losses. We recommend you apply proper risk management at all times due to the high risk involved in foreign exchange trading.


Margin is the amount of collateral to cover any credit risks which might arise during trading operations. It means you are trading with leverage, which can increase risk and potential returns. In forex markets, a 1% margin is not unusual and this means traders can control $100 000 currency worth of trade with just $1000.

Stop-Out Level

When your equity extremely drops, some of your running trades might automatically get closed by our system because your trading account does not have enough equity to maintain that particular trade/trades. Our stop out level is 30%.

Margin Monitoring and Call

FBK Markets offers you transparency with monitoring your used and free margin in real-time. Used and free margin together make up your total equity and used margin refers to the amount of money you need to deposit in order to hold a trade.

In case a trade goes against you, FBK Markets has strict margin call monitoring and we will attempt to notify you when your account Equity drops below 50% as a form of warning. To ensure you are kept in a trade during a condition like this, deposit more funds to your trading account in order to be on the safe side or you can decide to close it manually, you are in control!
