Whenever you make a transaction, you are able to use a Multiplier. The Multiplier allows you to effectively multiply the amount that you invest.
For example, if 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 - without running the risk of losing more than the £100 that you invested.
The advantage of this is that it can help your profits increase 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 original investment.
Please remember that the percentage amount that you see in bold in the portfolio screen (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.
