In your trading activities, you can use leverage, or multiplier, which is a feature increasing your trade's profit potential; however, it increases your risk, too.A Multiplier is one of the major tools in Libertex. It allows you to increase your trade's profit potential.How does it work? It’s Very simple.Let's assume you buy EUR/USD, your investment amount is $50, and your multiplier is one. If the price goes up 10%, your profit will be $5 ($50 x 10%).However if instead of one you specify 20 as a multiplier your investment amount will rise to $1,000 ($50x20).As you can see, your profit has been multiplied by 20, and this is how the multiplier works.This is like the speed of a car: the greater it is, the faster you reach your destination. However, high speed brings with it more risk. This is why every car driver chooses a speed which is good for themselves depending on their experience, road surface condition and the traffic code.For novice traders, we recommend using a minimum multiplier, which equals 1, in order to avoid risks in case the market moves against you.

Stop out level is one of the basic trading conditions in Libertex.
If the stop out level is 100%, this means your position will be closed automatically when its loss is 100% or more of the initial investment amount. When stop out level is in place, the trade is closed at the first price available at the moment of closing, meaning that the eventual result may be different from the one expected based on the stop loss level you specified.
Stop out level is set for 100% for all financial instruments, except CFD's on stocks, where it is 80%.

To calculate your profit or loss for a Long trade, please use the following formula:
PL = S * M * ( Ec / E0 – 1 ) – C , where:
PL is your profit or loss
S is your investment amount
M is the multiplier value in use
Ec is the close price
Eo is the open price
C is commission charged for your transaction
To calculate your profit or loss for a Short trade, please use the following formula:
PL = S * M * ( 1- Ec / E0) – C
Let's assume you have opened a long Dow Jones trade worth 1,000 USD with multiplier at 10, at 15,345 and closed it at 15,515, your transaction fee being 1.70 USD, and the rollover fee at - 3.80 USD.
Thus, what we get is: 1,000 * 10 * ( 15,515 / 15,345 – 1) – 1.70 – 3.80 = 105.28 USD.
Your transaction profit is 105.28 USD.
Now let's assume we open an identical trade, but a short one:
1,000 * 10 * (1 – 15,515 / 15,345) – 1.70 – 0.20 = -112.68 USD
Here, your loss would be 112.68 USD.
According to the current trading conditions specified in the Instrument Specification, the commission for opening a transaction on Libertex accounts is floating, and may vary depending on the current spread level in the market.
In the case of trading at times when market volatility is increased (for example, when important economic news is released) or when liquidity is reduced (for example, when opening / closing a trading session or switching to the next trading day), the commission may be charged in an increased amount. This is due to the fact that in such periods of time spread on the market can significantly expand.
In addition, we draw your attention that the commission for opening a trade in Libertex terminal is charged on the trade amount, taking into account the multiplier. For example, a $ 10 deal with multiplier x10 is a trade with a total of $ 100 ($ 10 * 10). Accordingly, it is from this value ($ 100) that commission calculation will take place. Suppose that in this case, you paid a commission of $ 3. It is necessary to understand that $ 3 is a commission calculated from the total amount of the transaction $ 100 (the amount taking into account the multiplier). As you can see, in this example, the commission is 3% of the trade amount.
Therefore, in order to avoid charging higher commissions, we recommend that you pay special attention to trading during periods of unusual volatility / liquidity in the market, and carefully use the high multiplier values.
