The MUST DO's and DONT's of Leverage/Margin Trading (Plus a Short Intro on Margin Trading)

The MUST DO's and DONT's of Leverage/Margin Trading (Plus a Short Intro on Margin Trading)

Let's quickly describe what trading using leverage means.
Let's say you have $100 in BTC and want it to grow in terms of SATs (small pieces of a BTC). You don't have money to buy more BTC but want to try to predict if the price will go up or down.
So you take that $100 and decide to trade using leverage, 1-100x. For this example I'll use 10x. If you are using 10x leverage your $100 gives you access to $1000 in trading $$. If the price of BTC is $8,000 and you go "long" because you expect the price to go up, you have a position worth $1000 in BTC now open 'long.'
Because you only 'own' 10% of the money you are using to buy/sell BTC if the price of BTC drops 10% you are liquidated (whole position lost). However, similarly if BTC goes up 10% your $100 becomes $200. Leverage can work very well in your favor or against it. For this example of BTC at $8,000 if BTC moves $800 in either direction you lose the whole position, or gain 100% (and all the small incremental %s in between). Once the position is ready to be closed you ALWAYS pick "limit" and enter a price, even if higher than the actual price because the fees for "market" orders are usually 5x the price.

NOW THE LIST of to DO's and DONT's of Leverage Trading
  1. ALWAYS USE LIMIT ORDERS, the fees for market orders are MUCH higher.
  2. ALWAYS set the stop limit (where it sells automatically) $2 away from your actual liquidation point, if liquidated the fees are MUCH higher, like $50 vs $5.
  3. PATIENCE is a virtue. If you enter a position and it goes the wrong direction for an hour, STOP watching it. Enter the position, the point of selling (limit order) if it goes UP or DOWN, and walk away. Your anxiety will NOT impact the price.
  4. Buy or go long on major dips into support, sell or short on major pumps into resistance.
  5. Fade what your "instinct" tells you to do. The whole world has that same 'instinct.'
  6. Understand 100x is basically gambling, 50x too, but they can provide immense returns (or losses).
  7. Long positions on BTC ALWAYS make more than short positions. This is because if you long BTC and the price goes up, you have more BTC at a higher price. If you short it, and it goes down, great now you have 2 BTC instead of 1 but the price is 30% less. You make more with 2 BTC when the price is 30% higher (in terms of USD).
  8. Emotionless. You will loose AND win trades. Understand what you risk you MAY loose also understand how to profit similarly.
  9. Stick to under 10x leverage unless you want a real gamble (it's exciting though).
  10. DM any questions!

People want FIAT on ramp, leverage/margin trading and staking on exange

can all these things be done in a decentralized exange like XSN?
Or it will always suffer the competition on these things if compared to centralized alternative like Binance?

Question on Leverage Margin Trading.

Unlike Kraken where I can just click the leverage scale, is it true to say on Bitfinex I need to "fund/borrow" some coins from someone to trade with?
What if one's long or short goes into loss - how does one pay back the "fund/borrow?" Does the "fund/borrow" get paid back automatically once the day term expires - and it auto closes the position?
If going short on BTC/USD, does one borrow BTC or USD? If going long on BTC/USD, does one borrow BTC or USD?
If going long on ETH/USD, does one borrow ETH, BTC, or USD?
I can't find these answers anywhere - youtube, bitfinex, or reddit.
Thanks :-)

leverage/ margin trading on kraken: noob question

Hi.
I tried to open a position a few days ago on the ETH/EUR pair. I used 3X leverage and made a BUY-market order of 300 eth ( a test. kept for a few minutes, just for learning, nothing I can afford to loose). the position showed like a 50€ positive profit on the Profit /Loss column after a few minutes so I tried to sell.I used the same leverage and quantity, and made a SELL order to close the position. However I didn't make that profit at all, and actually lost like 30€. I'm super noob on margin trading and probably I'm doing something wrong when creating the orders. should I BUY/SELL or settle positions?
I then tried the opposite: made a 3x leverage sell order (as a new position) and tried to profit once the ETH/EUR index was going down on kraken. The Profil/loss column showed 30€ of profit, but when I created the opposite order (3Xbuy at limit) I ended up with a loss.
tl;dr: when a position for a leveraged BUY/SELL order is profitable/what i'm doing wrong?
edit: I might have some holes in the understanding of the concept of margin trading, plz be gentle. <3

Automating Leveraged/Margin Trading on Bitfinex

Haasbot's latest release of version 1.1.0.0 allows users to automate their trades on bitfinex with leverage (as in creating a short/long and closing it with trade signals from technical analysis indicators). Additionally, version 1.2.0.0 will allow users to trade with double margin (long on buy signals + close short and short on sell signals + close longs).
Here is a detailed write up about how this is done

Margin trading on Kraken: exactly what does opening and closing a leveraged position do?

Got a question regarding leveraged (margin) trading on Kraken. Suppose the current Bitcoin price is $5000 and I have $2500 on my account. I could just buy 0.5 BTC, but instead I would like to open a long margin position with 3x leverage.
So I do New Order, Intermediate, set Leverage to 3, and I buy 0.5 BTC. What happens now? Is the $2500 reduced from my account balance, and 0.5 BTC added, and the trade remains in my 'Positions' tab? Or is it something else, to reflect that my 0.5 BTC is 'locked' in this margin trade while the position is open?
Then suppose the Bitcoin price goes up by $500. Am I correct in thinking that my (unrealized) profit is now $750, because my position is 0.5 BTC at 3x leverage?
Now suppose at this point I want to close the trade i.e. take profit. From what I understand I have then to do a counter trade, i.e. do a margin trade in the opposite direction. So in this case I margin sell 0.5 BTC (regardless of what leverage) and then what? Am I now left with $3250 and no BTC in my account, and no remaining open positions?
PS. not taking trading fees into account here, obviously the actual numbers would be slightly less. And for simplicity I'm assuming market or limit orders here that are filled at the given example prices.

Where to Trade Crypto on Leverage/Margins: Over 20 Best Places

Right now, if you are looking to trade cryptocurrencies on leverage, you can opt to trade raw crypto or in CFDs. We found some of the best dedicated cryptocurrency exchanges offering crypto leverage/margin trading as Kraken, Poloniex, Huobi Pro, OKEx, CEX.io, Bitfinex, Coinexx, offering between 2x to 500x (2 times to 500 times). However, the most normal leverage range is 5x to 20x on most dedicated cryptocurrency exchanges including Kraken, Poloniex, Huobi Pro, OKEx, Bitfinex, CEX.io, with Bithumb Global set to launch full features later this year with 100x leverage, Coinexx offering 500x leverage, and Binance yet to launch the feature but having confirmed they will.
However, if you are looking for some of the best features when leverage trading crypto, plus if you want more leverages or multipliers, then cryptocurrency CFD contracts may be a better option for now, at WhaleClub, AvaTrade, Plus500, RoboForex (50x) and Evolve.Markets (50x), where leverages range from 10x to 50x or at Deribit (100x), XENA (100x), BitMex (100x), PrimeXBT (100x) and ADS Prime (500x) where leverages are in another entirely different level. All of these work differently from dedicated cryptocurrency exchanges above.
Otherwise below is a more detailed review of some of the main exchanges and broker trading platforms where you can trade different types of crypto either as real crypto or as CFDs in leverage.

CAP Finance (Collateralized Asset Protocol) DeFi

I think I made a post about CAP a month or so ago but there's been some updates since then!
https://www.coingecko.com/en/coins/cap
https://twitter.com/CapDotFinance
So here's the basic rundown:
CAP is planning on being a decentralized protocol that allows users to trade any market with stablecoins. This includes any asset with a price feed (stocks, precious metals, etc), leverage/margin trading with crypto (e.g. BTC/DAI) as well as synthetic stocks (think sTSLA), and regular trading (think AAPL/DAI). All this will happen from a Web3 wallet with no KYC.
Holding Cap (the token) will allow you to stake and earn trading fees from the pool once the main product is launched in Q4.
Circulating supply is 100,000 Cap at the moment. Inflation will occur but only at a rate of 100 new Cap minted per week after launch. A portion of which will go to stakers. Read the new tokenomic update for more details https://blog.cap.finance/2020/07/26/new-cap-economics.html
Beta just started today and the developer is handing out entry codes on a first come first serve basis. (It's actually quite funny since everyone is stalking the TG group for when the codes drop right now lol making for some good memes)
This has huge potential if it lives up to what's written in the whitepaper. Devs are anonymous at the moment based on the scope of the project (not fully decentralized yet so they're covering any legal bases). One dev is very responsive in Telegram and will answer any question in detail. Also was mentioned they have worked for one or more of the GAFA (Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple) companies. This one is heavily DYOR. If you're not comfortable with anon devs/investing while still in Beta stage then please don't. Also, don't invest more than you can afford to lose!!!

By depositing a minimal amount or margin, traders can borrow additional funds or leverage from the exchange and extend their position exponentially!

Your leverage ratio will vary, depending on the market you are trading, who you are trading it with, and the size of your position.
