How to change leverage at IC Markets?

What is leverage

Leverage is like a multiplier for your gains and losses. It lets you gain bigger exposure on any market, with a smaller capital. Most CFD brokers require you a level of leverage: a minimum of 5x or 10x or more.

And just a reminder if you have finished trading altogether, don't forget to withdraw your funds.
