You can change the leverage setting of a specific trading account by following these steps:
- Log in to your Exness Personal Area.
- Click the gear icon on your chosen trading account, and select Change max leverage.
- The dropdown will allow you to set your leverage, and confirm your selection with Set maximum leverage.
Custom leverage: you can set a custom leverage of your choosing by selecting Custom as the option from the dropdown menu. Existing limitations, terms and conditions apply.
Note: For clients registered with our Kenyan entity, the maximum available leverage is 1:400.
When you change your trading account’s leverage while there are open orders, the margins held for the open orders are recalculated according to the new leverage value. However, the maximum leverage setting available to a trading account is based on available equity so some leverage rates will not be available regardless of whether there are open orders or not.
|Equity in USD||Maximum leverage available|
|0 - 999.99||1:Unlimited (if eligible)
1:2000 (if not eligible)
|1 000 - 4 999.99||1:2000|
|5 000 - 29 999.99||1:1000|
|30 000 or more||1:500|
Leverage is adjusted automatically based on your equity, time of day, and economic events. Maximum leverage changes when equity hits the minimum value of the next range.

Note: when leverage is changed, margin charged on the trading account can exceed the trading account’s free margin. Though this will not influence open orders, it will lead to margin call and possibly limit opening new orders on that trading account.
For example: a trading account has its leverage set to 1:2000, with an open order of 1 lot EURUSD with EUR 50 margin charged. The leverage is changed to 1:2, which results in the margin becoming EUR 50 000, even if there is only EUR 785.83 as free margin; this results in margin call.
