Margin Trading

Leverage controls how much of your position is borrowed. Borrowing more funds is riskier, amplifying both your gains and losses, while also giving your position a riskier liquidation price.

To open your position, you’ll need to have enough funds in your main account to cover the margin deposit.

Let’s say you want to open a 5X LONG position on SEI-USDC with a position size of 1 SEI. The margin deposit for this position is 0.2 SEI, so you’ll need to have at least 0.2 SEI in your account to open this position.

Margin Deposit/Trade Amount

The margin deposit is your own personal stake (equity) in the position. The borrow/trade amount is the remaining portion of your position, consisting of borrowed funds.

When opening a position, you can lose no more than your margin deposit amount.

Fee/Fee Amount

Fees are accrued to Vortex Stakers and are also redirected towards both the Insurance Fund and the Liquidity Staking Pool.
