You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

Leverage for pro account

As a starting reference, the ESMA puts the non-major currency pairs, gold and major indices at the same level of risk / dangerosity.
Yet, Darwinex does it “his way”, applying its own particular hindsight. There’s little difference between the retail and pro leverages for indices to note: 6% vs 5%, whereas many minor FX crosses drop from 5% to 1% as comparison. Time to reevaluate with equilibrium ?
Compared to other brokers who run an overseas non-ESMA branch, these inequalities of treatment between assets are a bit disappointing (and unpractical)

For indices, if I compare with:

  • Lmax Global, retail 3.33% > pro 1%
  • Oanda Europe, retail 5% > pro 1%-2%
