  • Leverage

    Leverage is increased investment power through margin. Margin is a borrowed asset (stocks or cryptocurrencies), usually from the financial services company you are investing with, that allows you to make larger investments in the hopes of making even more money. Leverage allows the investor to control much more assets than he actually owns giving him the opportunity to make or lose more money.
