Setting Forex security leverage

I seem to be unable to set non-default leverage for any fx securities; eg

self.forex = self.AddForex("EURUSD", self.resolution, Market.FXCM, leverage = 500.0)
leverage = self.forex.MarginModel.GetLeverage(self.forex)
self.Debug('Our Leverage: {}'.format(leverage))

I'd expect logger to print 500, but instead it shows the default 50.
How do we set non-default leverage?

Hi basher ,

At the moment, Lean does not support named arguments in Python.
Please use all the arguments up to the 5th (the leverage):

self.forex = self.AddForex("EURUSD", self.resolution, Market.FXCM, True, 500.0)
leverage = self.forex.MarginModel.GetLeverage(self.forex)
self.Debug(f'Our Leverage: {leverage}')
