What are maximum position, maximum leverage, and Initial Margin Rate?
The leverage amount that's available to you is contingent on the notional value of your position. This means that the amount of leverage decreases as your position size increases. You have the flexibility to adjust the leverage to meet your specific requirements and all position sizes are calculated based on the notional value of the contract. Therefore, the leverage you choose directly affects the Initial Margin.
