Maintenance Margin Rate

The margin rate is an indicator to measure the risk of the assets secured by the position. The maintenance margin is the minimum margin rate of the position. When the position margin rate reaches the maintenance margin rate, your position will be forcibly taken over by the system. We use the mark price for margin rate calculations to avoid liquidation due to illiquidity or market manipulation.

Ladder Maintenance Margin Rate

In order to prevent the impact on market liquidity when large positions are liquidated, resulting in large losses from over-positioning, we adopt a step-by-step mechanism to reduce positions. Each step corresponds to a different maintenance margin rate. When the system determines that the margin is not enough for the maintenance margin of the current position, it will reduce the position and reduce the number of positions to the position corresponding to the next position.
