Position (Position)

Long Position: Buy into

Short Position: Sold out

Liquidation Price

This is the liquidation price.

When the coin price exceeds this price, the exchange’s system will immediately liquidate all your coins on that order.

What is the principle of Margin Trading?

When you execute the command LONG/SHORT with leverage x with capital Y. This means that you will borrow from the floor the amount corresponding to the formula (x-1)*Y to execute the command LONG/SHORT there.

After closing the order LONG/SHORT You need to return the correct amount borrowed from the exchange plus 1 loan service fee.

In case, you enter the order LONG/SHORT But the actual price goes against your prediction.

When the price hits the liquidation price, the floor will automatically liquidate to get back the capital you borrowed, the difference in this loss will be deducted directly from your original capital.

Specific examples:

    • Initial capital: 10,000$ to buy 1 Bitcoin
    • Leverage: 10x
    • Position: Long (ie Buy)
    • Closing price: Suppose to close the order when Bitcoin price rises to $11,000

At this point, you use 10x leverage, which means you will borrow another $90,000 from the exchange to buy Bitcoin for $10,000 (and you have 10 BTC)

And when the Bitcoin price rises to $11,000, you close the LONG order. That means you sold 10 Bitcoins for $11,000/Bitcoin and earned $111,000. Then you have to pay the floor $90,000, so now you have: $21,000.

So compared to the beginning, you profit: 11,000$

Suppose if the price of Bitcoin falls to $9,000 and coincides with the liquidation price. Immediately, the exchange will sell those 10 BTC and collect $90,000.

Next, you will have to pay the $90,000 borrowed from the floor, and now your account is empty. This time is Fire Account.

This is just an example for 10x leverage, there are actually 25x, 50x, 100x leverage… The more leverage you use, the higher the profit and the higher the risk.
