FTX Margin Trading Update: Latest Changes and What They Mean for You

 

FTX Margin Trading Update: Latest Changes and What They Mean for You

If you’re not familiar with FTX Margin Trading, don’t worry! It’s easy to understand, and it’s the best way to trade in your favorite stocks and ETFs without using your own money. With FTX Margin Trading, you don’t need to have a high income or even have any investing experience at all!


New Support Levels, Lower Costs

FTX recently made some changes to their margin trading platform that we want to make sure you’re aware of. 

The new update includes two separate, but equally important updates; a new limit on how much your portfolio can increase in value within one week, as well as lower daily fees. Before we get into these specific updates, it’s worth getting an overview of what FTX margin trading is all about. If you haven’t already done so, check out our full guide here. 

To summarize briefly, FTX allows users to leverage their existing holdings through margin trading. This means that if you have $100 in cryptocurrency, you can borrow another $100 from FTX and trade with a total balance of $200. 

In return for borrowing money from them, they charge interest based on how risky your position is (i.e., if you own highly volatile assets like Bitcoin or Ethereum). To use an example from above, let’s say you borrow $100 using 10% interest rate and buy 1 ETH at $500 per coin.

3 Takeaways from the FTX Update

There have been three significant changes to FTX margin trading that you should know about. If you’re not familiar with FTX margin trading, keep reading  I’ll walk you through what it is, how it works, and what impact these updates will have on your trading. If you’re looking to brush up on your skills, though, start by checking out our guide to margin trading! FTX Updates: There are three core points from today’s announcement that we want to be sure traders understand fully. 

First, only certain pairs will now be available for margin trading. Second, there has been a change in leverage limits. Third, additional pairs may become available in future updates. Let’s take a look at each of these areas individually. Only Certain Pairs Will Be Available for Margin Trading: Before today’s update, any pair could be traded using FTX margin trading. 

Now, only Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) can be used to trade other cryptocurrencies. We don’t yet know if or when more cryptocurrencies will be added – or if some existing coins will no longer be supported – but users can expect further announcements as time goes on. For now, these two popular coins offer plenty of options for diversification into crypto-based tokens and altcoins.


What Does This All Mean For Me?

This new update is, in a nutshell, an increase in FTX’s margin requirements, which should lead to more people looking to trade with leverage—or rather, it’ll allow them to do so. 

In essence, there will be bigger trades (on both sides of said trades) that have gone from being nearly impossible to now being possible. No matter how you look at it though (no pun intended), you’re getting a larger amount of leverage—meaning that you get more value with each contract than ever before. 

If you’re looking to increase your overall portfolio value without taking on more risk or additional expenses, then trading has never been easier. It also means that if you already trade with leverage, then you’re going to be able to take advantage of even more contracts per position. 

All things considered, no matter what side of the market you’re on (long or short), these changes are good news for everyone involved. To read more about why we’ve made these changes, check out our press release here.
