INCREASED LEVERAGE ON STOCK CFDS! 20X LEVERAGE NOW AVAILABLE
IQ Option has increased the leverage for stock CFDs from 10x to 20x. This new investment multiplier (another term for leverage) applies to non-regulated traders (residing outside of the European Union) and pro traders from the European Union. Although retail traders from the European Union do not have access to 20x leverage due to ESMA restrictions, they can luckily still trade with 5x leverage, which is still a good amount of leverage when it comes to stock trading.
YOU CAN CHOOSE BETWEEN 4 DIFFERENT LEVERAGE SETTINGS.
For all the information about the different leverage settings on the different instruments offered by IQ Option, please take a look at IQ Option Multiplier Meaning: Leverage Explained in Detail
Stock markets have recently experienced much volatility and this higher multiplier offers a high-risk high-return way of trading for those who want to get the most out of stock price movements.

With 1:20 leverage, traders can trade pretty large positions compared to the size of their trading accounts. For example, with only $100, a trader can control a stock trade with a notional value of $2000. This exposes the trader to potentially much larger gains (or losses) without having to put down too much cash to open and maintain the position. In this example, the trader can only lose the $100 he invested in the position. Losses cannot exceed the original investment amount.
*Traders who use leverage should understand how it works and be aware that an increase in leverage increases risk.
