3. Learn about risk ratio control for safer margin trading.
Risk ratio refers to the ratio of debts calculated by the system to assets when users hold spot margin trading positions. When the risk ratio is 80% or above, the position is subject to a margin call. At 100% or above, the position will be subject to partial or full liquidation.
Methods to reduce risk ratio and secure funds:
3.1 Increase your margin. Users can transfer funds to increase margin so as to better control the risk ratio.
3.2 Close positions partially to repay loans. Users can partially close their positions to repay debt.
4. Margin insurance fund
Bitget holds a margin insurance fund to make up for any losses incurred by traders upon a margin call and/or liquidation. The fund is replenished through liquidation fees and profits from spot margin trading, coming into play when investors are unable to repay their margin loans and interest. This will prevent users from excessive losses and negative equity.
