In order to help you use our product more effectively, we will explain the calculation method for liquidation prices in isolated margin mode, the display logic and the corresponding margin adjustment settings.
I. Isolated Margin Liquidation Price Formula
Long Position:
Liquidation Price = (Position Margin  Entry Average Price * Quantity * Face Value) / (Position Quantity * Face Value * (Margin Maintenance Rate + Taker Fee Rate  1))
Short Position:
Liquidation Price = (Position Margin + Entry Average Price * Quantity * Face Value) / (Position Quantity * Face Value * (Margin Maintenance Rate + Taker Fee Rate + 1))
Parameter explanation, where:
Position Margin = Position Value / Leverage, as leverage increases, margin requirements decrease; as leverage decreases, margin requirements increase.
Margin Maintenance Rate: This parameter is a constant specific to different trading pairs.
Taker Fee Rate: The taker fee rate of transactions.
II. Impact of Leverage Adjustment on Liquidation Price
Scenario  Change in Long Position Liquidation Price  Change in Short Position Liquidation Price  Remarks 
Original Leverage for the Position is 20x, and it is adjusted to 40x from 20x  Liquidation price remains unchanged: According to the short position liquidation price formula, the position margin, maintenance margin rate, and other factors remain the same  Liquidation price remains unchanged: According to the short position liquidation price formula, the position margin, maintenance margin rate, and other factors remain the same  1. For the same trading pair, the maintenance margin rate is a constant. 2. Different trading pairs have different maintenance margin rates. 
Original Leverage for the Position is 20x, and it is adjusted to 10x from 20x  Liquidation price changes: According to the long position liquidation price formula, the position margin changes, other factors remain the same  Liquidation price changes: According to the short position liquidation price formula, the position margin changes, other factors remain the same 
Specific Explanation: In isolated margin mode, after opening a position, the margin allocated to the isolated margin position is frozen and can be considered a constant. When a user needs to increase leverage, according to the formula: Denominator parameters:

Position quantity remains constant.

Face value remains constant.

The Margin Maintenance Rate is constant for the same trading pair and doesn't change.

Taker fee rate remains constant. Numerator parameters:

The margin in the isolated margin position is temporarily frozen after opening, and it doesn't change.

Entry average price remains constant.

Quantity remains constant.

Face value remains constant. In summary, whether it's a long or short position, increasing leverage after opening a position does not cause changes in the numerator or denominator parameters, and thus the liquidation price remains unchanged.
When a user needs to decrease leverage, according to the formula: Denominator parameters:

Position quantity remains constant.

Face value remains constant.

The Margin Maintenance Rate is constant for the same trading pair and doesn't change.

Taker fee rate remains constant. Numerator parameters:

The margin in the isolated margin position is temporarily frozen after opening, but as per the definition: Position Margin = Position Value / Leverage, when leverage decreases, the margin requirement increases. Therefore, available funds in the user's derivative account will automatically be transferred to the corresponding isolated margin position as additional margin after the leverage reduction.

Entry average price remains constant.

Quantity remains constant.

Face value remains constant. In summary, whether it's a long or short position, decreasing leverage after opening a position does not cause changes in the denominator parameters, but it does increase the "Position Margin" in the numerator, resulting in a slightly larger margin requirement. Note: If there are no available funds in the user's derivative account, no more funds will be transferred to the corresponding isolated margin position in this case. In such a scenario, adjusting the leverage will not change the liquidation price.
How to place orders in isolated margin mode
In the order placing page, switch the mode from cross margin to isolated margin, other steps remain the same.
After clicking the "Open" button, you can set if you want automatic margin call and how many times you want to add. Check everything up, click confirm.
If you want to adjust your margin manually, you can turn to position information page, click the "order book" sign and adjust your margin.
