Now let's see how the amount required depends on the chosen leverage:
So, if you want to buy one standard lot (€100’000) for EUR/USD, without using any leverage (1:1), you need to have €100’000 on your account. However, with the leverage of 1:100, you only need €1000 as the required margin. With 1:200, you will need €500, and with leverage of 1:400 - only €250.
