Initial Margin is the minimum amount of Bitcoin you must deposit to open a position. Initial margin varies based on how much leverage you use. Initial margin is calculated as
Contract Size / Trading Price * Number of Contracts * Leverage Percentage. For instance, if you place an order at $10,000 of 1 contracts, your initial margin varies based on leverage:
|Initial Margin (BTC)||0.001||0.0001||0.00005||0.000033||0.000025||0.00002|
Maintenance Margin is the minimum amount of Bitcoin you must hold to keep a position open. Maintenance Margin is 1% of your position value and if your account equity drops below this level your position will be taken over by the Risk Management System and be liquidated.
