1. Isolated and Cross Margin Mode
Isolated Margin Mode: A mode that allocates a certain amount of margin to a position.
Cross Margin Mode: A margin model that uses all available balance in the account for the position.
|Diffs||A limited amount of margin will be allocated to a position.||All available balance in account shall be used as margin.|
|Independent margins will be applied to each position respectively. Profits and losses will not affect each other.||Margin will be shared for all positions. Profit and loss can be hedged between multiple swaps.|
|Only the margin of related position will be affected, if liquidation is triggered.||All balance in the account will be lost if liquidation is triggered.|
|Pros||Margin is isolated, which limits losses to a certain range. Suitable for more volatile and high leverage ratio situations.||Profit and loss can be hedged between multiple swaps, reducing margin requirements and increasing capital utilization.|
