How much Leverage I can use?

By default 1:200 Leverage. In other words 0.5% margin on any position.

How the required margin is calculated in the base currency (USD)?

You can calculate the required margin by dividing the size of your position by 200 (which is the default leverage) or multiply by the percentage margin 0.5%. Then transform the amount in US dollars based on current market exchange rates.

What 50% Stop out level means?

It means that, when the Equity of your account drops below the 50% of your Margin required then the open trading positions would start liquidating.
Example
Current level of Equity is 8989.17. Margin is 212.26. Percentage Margin Level is 4234.91%
Stopout Level: 50% of the Margin is 0.50×212.26=106.1, therefore in case the equity drops below 106.1 then open trading positions would be automatically liquidated by the system.
