BITPoint offers a service that allows trading using leverage. This is called leveraged Trading or Margin Trading. This service allows an increase that leverages the trading margin; is the process by which a Trader or merchant borrows money from BITPoint in order to buy or sell more crypto-assets or cryptocurrencies that the Trader is not able to pay at the time of the request. This trading margin therefore functions in some way as a short-term loan and allows the trader to increase his crypto-assets and the purchasing power he has. In addition, this can provide the opportunity to create much larger gains compared to what the Traders involved in the Market Trading would be able to generate normally.Margin Trading or leveraged transactions confer a greater profit potential than traditional trade, but also higher risks. Users who do not have a complete understanding of the operation of the leveraged transactions and the associated risk should not use the service. Users who do not wish to use the service can disable thefunctionality in the users’ settings.To become eligible to participate in leveraged transactions, you must consider the following considerations:These transactions can be executed on our website our APP BIT Point LITE.The cost of requesting or opening an account to trade with Leveraged Transactions or leveraged transactions will depend on the position in which it is opened.

The customer positions with the highest loss will close until the margin maintenance ratio is recovered at 100%. Depending on the situation of the customer’s account, all positions could be closed. In situations where the price changes dramatically, you may suffer losses greater than your margin, even if the loss cut is executed.
Alert In the event that the Maintenance Margin Index falls below 120%, an alert will appear on the customer management screen and you will be notified by email.
Slippage (Sudden Drop In The Price) The “Slippage” is a difference between the executed price and the assigned price (or the displayed price) in Limit Orders, Loss Limitation Orders and Market Orders. After the sudden rise or fall of the market and / or the Internet connectivity of the client, a
“Slippage” may occur. To avoid a large difference in the price assigned, you can select a price range according to the time you place the order. It will not run more or less, than the price range you have selected.
