What is Multiplier and how does it work?

In your trading activities, you can use leverage, or multiplier, which is a feature increasing your trade's profit potential; however, it increases your risk, too.

A Multiplier is one of the major tools in Libertex. It allows you to increase your trade's profit potential.How does it work? It’s Very simple.Let's assume you buy  EUR/USD, your investment amount is $50, and your multiplier is one. If the price goes up 10%, your profit will be $5 ($50 x 10%).However if instead of one you specify 20 as a multiplier your investment amount will rise to $1,000 ($50x20).As you can see, your profit has been multiplied by 20, and this is how the multiplier works.This is like the speed of a car: the greater it is, the faster you reach your destination. However,  high speed brings with it more risk. This is why every car driver chooses a speed which is good for themselves depending on their experience, road surface condition and the traffic code.For novice traders, we recommend using a minimum multiplier, which equals 1, in order to avoid risks in case the market moves against you.
