Does BTSE offer leverage? How much leverage does BTSE offer?

 

BTSE offers up to 100x Leverage on its futures products.


 

What is Initial Margin?


  • Initial Margin is the minimum amount of USD (or USD equivalent value) you must have in your margin wallets (Cross Wallet or Isolated Wallets) in order to open a position.
  • For Perpetual Contracts, BTSE sets the Initial Margin requirement at 1% of the contract price (/Notional Value).
    For example: If the current market price of BTC's Perpetual Contract is $100 per contract, then the default Initial Margin is $100 x 1% = $1 (for max leverage of 100x)


 

What is Maintenance Margin?


  • Maintenance Margin is the minimum amount of USD (or USD Value) you must have in your margin wallets (Cross Wallet or Isolated Wallets) to keep a position open.
  • For Perpetual Contracts, the Maintenance Margin Percentage is determined by your chosen risk limit level.
  • When the Mark Price reaches the Liquidation Price,
  •  your margin will have fallen to the maintenance margin level, and your position will be liquidated, partially liquidated, or trigger a forced market buy/sell.
