Set Holdings to 4x margin?

Hi All,

Is it possible to use the set margin command to anything higher than 2? I've tried with no success, but would like to backtest with varying levels of margin up to 4x. Many thanks!

Hello Benjamin,


In Cash accounts, leverage is disabled. By setting account type to Margin, the available leverage reaches to 4x while the market is open and 2x overnight. This Boot Camp tutorial could be one example. I also attached a solution to demonstrate a leverage of 4.


Best,

Yuxin Guan
