What is Margin Trading?
Margin Trading is a type of transaction where users can perform large volumes of transactions with the help of leverage with a small amount of money. For example, with margin trading, you can trade with 2 or 3 times more than the asset you have. The numbers may vary depending on the platform.
You can make a high level of profit with margin trading, as well as large profit losses. You can earn 3 times more or lose 3 times more.
Let’s explain margin trading with an example: You have 2 ETH. By choosing 2 ETH and leverage 2 (2×2), you can open long positions of 4 ETH, considering that BTC will rise.
What Do Short Position and Long Position Mean?
We can explain the short and long positions with examples. Assuming you open a long position, you will make a profit when the cryptocurrency gains an upward acceleration. Another possibility is that you will suffer a loss with a downward acceleration.
In the short position, if the cryptocurrency moves downwards, you will experience profit and if it moves upwards, you will suffer losses. With the cryptocurrency in a downtrend, you can upgrade your ETHs by using the short position for ETH.
