Differences Between Isolated Margin and Cross Margin
2022/03/08 14:45:10

1. Isolated Margin


Under the isolated margin, traders can hold both multiple long and short positions. When a trader's position is liquidated, the trader will only lose the margin amount in a particular position. The loss of margin amount is calculated solely in each isolated position and this will only be the maximum loss of traders. If the trader closes the position, it will calculate profit and loss solely by your long and short positions into your account balance immediately. 


Pros: If the price is affected by the volatile market and the trader's position is liquidated, the loss will be calculated solely in each isolated position. It will not affect other positions in the future accounts.


For example, 

If the trader has 100 USDT in the U-Futures account, he/she uses 50 USDT as maintenance amount to open the isolated position. When it’s liquidated, the trader loses 50 USDT and remains 50 USDT in the account balance.


2. Cross Margin


Under the cross margin, the assets in your account will be all considered as margin amounts. The liquidation will happen only when the position loss exceeds the overall margin balance.


Pros: 

It will enhance the risk tolerance level and easily operate in calculating positions.


For example, 

If the trader has 100 USDT in the U-Futures account, he/she uses 50 USDT to open the long position in cross margin. In this circumstance, 100 USDT is the margin amount for this position. When it’s liquidated, the trader will lose 100 USDT and remain 0 USDT in the account balance.
