Similar movement to April 2020, needing to confirm move up
BTCUSD ·
Sat Apr 10 15:01:41 UTC 2021
Comparing the dramatic move up with previous price action, I found very few examples. In April 2020, BTC behaved very similarly, incrementally moving up for several days followed by a sudden strong move to the upside. That path maps exactly to the upper trend line I've drawn out here. Mirroring the prior path, the current path moves through the current area of...

Trading Terminology

Basic Knowledge
Open Positions:

refer to the state of a trade after a trader has entered the market. Traders can Buy or Sell to enter the market.



Closed Positions:

refers to executing a security transaction that is the exact opposite of an open position, thereby nullifying it and eliminating the initial exposure.



Close Out:

When your account's Equity reaches 50% of your Used margin , the system will automatically close out positions. The system will start closing positions that have the highest loss until the ratio is greater than 50%.



IMPORTANT NOTE: You should set “stop loss” and “take profit” in time when trading.

How to calculate profit and loss?

Product Guide
Profit/Loss = Price Difference in pips * Pip Value



For example, you buy 100 AUDUSD with a pip value of 0.01 USD and required margin of $5.

The opening price is 0.78260 and the closing price is 0.78220.

Their price difference in pips is -4 pips [(0.78220-0.78260)/0.0001 - The pip for AUDUSD is the fourth decimal point, ie. 0.0001].

Hence, the profit/loss (P/L) is -$0.04.

What is Margin Level?

Product Guide
● The margin level is a risk management gauge that helps you understand how the currently opened positions influence your account.

● Margin level is a mathematical equation that effectively tells the trader how much of their funds are available for new trades

● The higher the margin level, the higher the amount of cash available to trade

● The lower the margin level, the lower the amount of cash available to trade and the account could be subject to a margin call.

● Monitoring margin level is important for managing your account. If it falls to 100% the system will not allow you to open new positions, and in the case it falls further, some of your positions may be forcibly closed. You can raise it, either by adding funds to your account to increase equity or by closing some positions to reduce used margin.

If your margin level is getting close to 50%, you are in danger of having some of your positions forcibly closed. When the margin level is less than or equal to 50%, the positions with the greater losses will be closed out until the margin level rises above 50%. The positions opened by coupons will not be influenced and hence coupon trades will not be closed out.



How is margin level calculated?

It is calculated by the following formula:

Margin level = (equity ÷ used margin) × 100%

If you don't have any trades open, your margin level will be “- “



Margin level example

If your account equity is $8,000 and your used margin is $2,000 then your margin level is 400%.
