Dear newbie, trading with only a hundred dollars or even less is not much different from trading with a large amount because the basis is how to manage the capital and manage the account, not the size of the account, because if you simply cannot maintain your account a small account of not more than a hundred dollars you will not be able to keep With your big account if it reaches thousands of dollars.

How to use leverage perfectly

Good returns can be achieved by trading with $100, using leverage that can be up to 1:100. You can enter trades with greater leverage than the amount you put in your account, as you can open a total of more than $5,000 worth of positions by funding your account is only $100 and this feature is what makes the leverage more attractive to trade.

But there is another very important aspect which is the good use of financial leverage, as once you enter the market with poor capital management and lack of interest in the foundations of risk management, you will expose your capital to successive losses and lose the profits that you may have achieved before.
