HTX Invites Market Makers and Key Clients to Join Beta Test of New Margin Services

HTX has launched new margin services, and we invite market makers and key clients to join the beta test.

About HTX's New Margin Services

To better protect user assets and improve margin trading experience, HTX has updated the rules for margins, including introducing a new risk rate formula, adopting a new tiered margin policy, and applying initial and maintenance margins in opening and liquidation verification. The update will make the margin weights of coins more in line with their liquidity and user positions, offering greater margin weights for smaller positions and assets with better liquidity, as well as allowing users to trade more crypto assets in margined products.


Calculation for New Margin Value

Tiered margin weight is set based on the liquidity and open positions of different tokens to minimize the potential slippage losses in closing positions. Please refer to the HTX website for specific discount rates.


Account Risk and Risk Management

HTX monitors the risk of user accounts at any time and conducts risk control according to users' risk levels. Please refer to the following formula for information related to account risk and risk control.

● For a specific coin: Maintenance Margin = Net Debt * Maintenance Margin Ratio * Price in USDT

● Account Risk Rate = (Total Margin Value - Total Net Debt Value) / Total Maintenance Margin

HTX has set risk criteria for users. See the following for the available operations under different risk rates:

● When the account risk rate is < 150%, withdrawal is not available. This indicator is applicable before and after a withdrawal.

● When the account risk rate is < 105%, the system will force liquidation automatically, during which no account operation is available. The margin in the account will be used for liquidation as well as for repaying interest and arrears. When the margin value is below zero, HTX will mark the account as negative equity and reserves the right to claim the debt from the user.


Calculation for Maintenance and Initial Margins

Maintenance margin is used for liquidation verification:

Maintenance Margin = Net Debt * Maintenance Margin Ratio

Like the maintenance margin, the initial margin is used to verify that a user is eligible to open a position. A user's eligibility for opening a position is calculated as follows:

(Total Margin Value - Total Net Debt Value) > Initial Margin

Initial Margin = Initial Margin Ratio * Net Debt
