Fining a broker that gives me more leverage!


I am with tradestation! Very fine with it, but of one exeption:
They cut my possiblity to leverage down to 5%, They used to give me 100% then 50% and so on.
This happened as my account grew (around 900k now).
I only trade microcaps.

Well I am not keen to overleverage, but I would like to have the possibility to leverage up to 50% in certain
market Regimes.

Is anybody trading microcaps and has a broker that gives leverage > 10%?

Thank you

Best Regards

I think you know what you’re doing, Andreas.


Leverage and illiquidity. What could possibly go wrong?

I am a long time TradeStation user, but I prefer Interactive Broker for my small cap stock trading. IB offers some really good order entry algos for small caps (e.g, adaptive limit, vwap, twap, etc.). In addition, IB pays interest on cash balances, which I don’t get in my futures account at TS. If I could find a way to move my futures generated trade signals to IB, then I would move my futures trading over there as well.
