Bitget Coin-Ⓜ Futures: Unrealized P/L and Realized P/L

Dear Bitget users:

 

The following text is about Unrealized P/L and Realized P/L

User participation in futures transactions will inevitably result in trading profits or losses. There are two types of profits and losses-unrealized P/L due to positions held and realized P/L due to liquidation.

 

1. Unrealized profit and loss

 Unrealized profit and loss refers to the profit of the user's unclosed position. After the current position is closed at the reasonable marked price, the estimated profit and loss amount will change with the fluctuation of the reasonable marked price.

USDT-Margined futures

Long unrealized profit and loss = face value * number of positions * (current marked price-average open price)

Short unrealized profit and loss = face value * number of positions * (average opening price-current marked price)

Coin-Margined futures

Long unrealized profit and loss = face value * number of positions * (1/average opening price-1/current marked price)

Short unrealized profit and loss = face value * number of positions * (1/current marked price-1/average opening price)

For example

Suppose that when the price of Bitcoin is 8,500 USDT, Xiao Ming opened a long usdt-margined futures of 10,000 futures (BTC/USDT futuress). Now the reasonable marked price of the futures is 9,000 USDT. If the fee is not calculated, Xiao Ming's unrealized profit and loss are:

0.0001 BTC * 10,000 sheets * (9,000 USDT/BTC-8,500 USDT/BTC) = 500 USDT

 

2. Realized profit and loss

Realized profit and loss refers to the real profit and loss that occurs after the position is closed, which is calculated based on the user's opening price and closing price.

USDT-Margined futures

Long realized profit and loss = face value * closing quantity * (closing price-average opening price)

Realized short position profit and loss = face value * closing quantity * (average opening price-closing price)

Coin-Margined futures

Long realized profit and loss = face value * closing quantity * (1/average opening price-1/closing price)

Realized short position profit and loss = face value * number of positions to be closed * (1/closing price-1/average opening price)

For example

Suppose that when the price of Bitcoin is 8,500 USDT, Xiao Ming opened a long usdt-margined futures of 10,000 futures (BTC/USDT futures). Now the reasonable marked price of the futures is 9,000 USDT. If the fee is not calculated, Xiao Ming's unrealized profit and loss are:

0.0001 BTC * 10,000 sheets * (9,000 USDT/BTC-8,500 USDT/BTC) = 500 USDT
