Forex trading question

On forex.com why do some of my trades cancel and I lose money? I am new to leverage trading and I assume it has something to do with that, but sometimes it happens after just a few minutes so I don’t understand

Automatic margin close out when margin reaches a certain %. Check with your broker what the percentages are.

This is either a margin requirement issue as the others have mentioned OR it could be a FIFO thing. FIFO = First In First Out. It's basically a US broker regulation which determines the order in which multiple orders get closed out. If you don't understand it, that could explain why some of your orders are getting cancelled/closed. More info here - https://www.oanda.com/resources/legal/united-states/legal/close-trades-fifo

How big's the account and what lot size was your position?

My guess is that your free margin or margin levels are to low, or you are trading to big of a position for the amount of margin you do have. My suggestion to you would be to Google how margin and margin call works in forex trading.
