How to Read the Assets Column?


You can check the status of your assets by clicking [Assets]. Unrealized PNL shows your account’s profit/loss. Margin Balance and Position Margin display the way you use your margin.

Unrealized PNL refers to the profit/loss of your position. The Unrealized PNL will be settled and credited to a user’s account balance during settlement at 08:00 (UTC) every day. Then, the Unrealized PNL will be reset. After closing your position, the UPL will be credited as the Realized PNL.

Margin Balance refers to the margin available for open positions. The calculation of margin balance is different under cross/independent margin mode.

Position Margin refers to the total sum of margins required by open positions and all open orders.


USDT-margined perpetual swap trading: 

  • Initial margin: the minimum margin amount required to be paid by the trader when opening a position. At the same time, the initial margin ratio (position value at opening time/margin for the position) also shows your leverage ratio. The initial margin is generally 1% of position value at opening time. It will rise with a risk limit when the position becomes too big.
  • Maintain margin: the minimum margin required to maintain position. When the margin amount is lower than such proportion, a forced liquidation event or partial forced liquidation event will be triggered. The maintenance margin is 0.5% of the position value at opening time. It will rise with a risk limit when the position becomes too big.
  • Position-opening cost: the total frozen assets required for the trader to open a position, including the initial margin required for opening a position and possible fees.
  • Actual leverage ratio: the current position includes the leverage ratio of unrealized profit/loss.
