The level is a ratio between the trader’s own funds and borrowed funds, which a trader borrows from his broker. 1:100 level means that for a transaction you must have a trading account with amount 100 times less than the sum of the transaction.
Example: a trader chooses the 1:500 level and has 200 euros on his account. Level 1:500 allows him to buy a contract worth 100.000 euros.
