As an ASIC regulated brokerage firm, Invast Global still offers high leverage even to retail traders and the maximum level is 1:100 for major currency pairs.

If we look at the ‘Product Disclosure Statement’ document, we are going to assure that Invast Global is a market maker. That means the company determines the buy and sell prices of all provided instruments and is a counterparty on every client transaction. No matter how big the market maker is, a warning for slippage can also be found in the document. It indicates that stop loss orders are not guaranteed and can be executed at much worse price than requested. In addition, there is written that you could lose more than what you invested.
We can conclude Invast Global is a strictly regulated company with a long history. However, trading conditions are suitable only for professional traders, or institutional clients.
