Please check the required margin column in the links above and change the Measure into ‘Units’. Once it’s changed into ‘Units’, the required margin will be shown as a per cent (%). The formula to get the leverage is 1/the required margin (%).

For example, as you can see the required margin to open a BTCUSD trade is 10%. This means that the leverage equals 1/10% = 1/0.1 = 10. So, you will get 1:10 as the leverage for BTCUSD.
