Like all other countries that are part of the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), Malta restricts trading leverage to a maximum of 1:30 for non-professional forex traders. However, there are still some forex brokers in Malta that are also regulated in other countries where much higher trading leverage is allowed.
Depending on your specific situation, it may be possible to sign up and trade with an offshore-regulated entity of a Maltese forex broker. This way, it is possible to earn high leverage of up to 1:500, and sometimes even more. However, it’s worth noting that depending on the policies of the broker, EU-based traders may be directed to trade with the Malta-regulated entity.
