The Multiplier option allows you to multiply the amount that you invest.
For example: You invest £100 and apply a Multiplier of 5. This means that your profits and losses are multiplied by 5 -> as though you’d invested £500. And you can do that without running the risk of losing more than the £100 that you invested.
The advantage is that your profits can increase more rapidly. However, the risk is that you can also lose your money much faster.
For this reason, we make sure that you can never lose more than your investment. How? Have a look here.
Please note: The % amount that you see in bold in your Portfolio (directly to the right of the product name) is the percentage in movement of your profit/loss including the Multiplier.
If you would like to see the actual percentage of change without the Multiplier included, simply click on your product in the portfolio screen and check the percentage under the ‘change’ heading (see: Leverage Trading: 3 Reasons To Power Up Your Trades).
