How to change maximum leverage

Evolve Markets offers some of the highest leverage of any derivatives brokerage, however, some traders prefer to lower their leverage for risk management purposes. In reality, using lower leverage is simply opening a smaller position relative to your account size but we also offer the option to set a Maximum Leverage. This means when you go to open a trade, Evolve Markets will calculate your margin using our default leverage schedule and compare that with your Maximum Leverage setting and take the lower of the two. For example, if the maximum leverage on BTCUSD is 100 and you have set you Maximum Leverage to 10, you final leverage will be 10x.
