Spot Trading:

See what the interface looks like;


  • Short — P × (1 + (M × V / W))
  • Long — P × (1 − (M × V / W))

Margin Trading

  • Isolated Margin Trade — Traders can leverage only on a single position allowing them to manage their risk by restricting the amount of margin allocated to a trade. In any possible liquidation, the total margin will not be affected instead the Isolated margin balance will be liquidated.
  • Cross Margin Trade: In Cross Margin, users have their entire margin shared across all open positions, this is a cool kind of margin trading as realized PnL (profit and loss) from one open position can help sustain another position from getting liquidated. The risk involved is that traders can lose their entire margin balance to a liquidation.
