Spot Margin - Borrowing is the core of margin trading

Spot Margin - Borrowing is the core of margin trading.

Spot margin trading is a product that allows users to borrow more funds to trade by collateralizing their margin. It belongs to the branch of spot trading and shares the same order book as spot trading.


  1. Provides users with more margin. Proper use of leverage can bring more potential profits to users in trading.

  2. Improves capital utilization. When users hold tokens and do not want to sell them, they can borrow other funds by collateralizing the tokens to further invest.

  3. Supports short selling of spot trading. When users are bearish on a certain token, they can borrow that token to sell high and buy low.

  4. More trading assets. Bitget continuously supplements the trading assets in spot margin, providing users with more tradable tokens.

  5. Bitget will distribute spot margin cut-rate coupons to users' accounts at random. These coupons can be used to borrow in margin at low or zero interest. Users can claim coupons via the Coupons Center. Click here to check and claim your coupon.

How to borrow:

Bitget provides two borrowing modes for users.

1. Auto-borrow (recommended): After selecting auto-borrow in the position, the maximum available funds will become the sum of the margin and the maximum borrowable amount. After the user enters the order amount, the system will display how much the order will borrow.

2. Manual-borrow: If the user has not selected auto-borrow, they can manually input the borrowing token, quantity, and view the borrowing interest by clicking the "borrow" button.

How to trade and profit

Long:Borrow stable coins to buy low and sell high, which is the same trading logic as spot trading.

Short:Borrow bearish tokens to sell and then buy back at a lower price for repayment.


  1. After making a profit or stop-loss, please remember to repay the borrowing, otherwise the borrowing interest will continue to be calculated.

  2. Spot margin trading can bring higher potential profits to users, but it also requires taking on the risks of borrowing. Therefore, please pay attention to your account's risk rate and set stop-loss orders in a timely manner.
