    I have traded forex for awhile, but am looking for more leverage. The us brokers offer a max of 50:1. A us broker tried to tell me it's illegal for a is citizen to open a forign account, which obviously is not true.

    I was wondering if any is citizens have used more than 100:1 overseas and didn't have problems along the way. GFT and Alpari look like the largest brokers offering good leverage, but Gft won't allow more than 50:1 for us customers.
