Confident in Your Trading Skills?

If you are a retail client, you enjoy ASIC protections, but you also have many restrictions, including leverage maximum of 1:30.

Experienced traders can upgrade to a Professional category to use increased leverage and other perks listed below.

By doing so, they lose some protections that retail clients have, including access to external dispute resolution through AFCA and the right to FSG and PDS.

Exclusive Features for Professionals

  • Leverage up to 
1:500

  • Decreased stop-out level

  • Priority service

As a professional, you get the increased leverage of up to 1:500 for trading. Make sure you know and accept all the risks involved.
