This guide will focus on USD-margined futures, but the exchange also supports coin-margined contracts where the denomination is in cryptocurrency.
This is what the trading interface looks like:
Although similar, you will notice some differences, especially above the order fields. This is where you can select the type of margin you want to use, as well as the leverage.
It’s worth noting that the platform doesn’t support manual leverage changes, but rather the leverage is automatically decreased as you increase your position size. More information on this can be found here.
Using high leverage is particularly risky, and it’s not advised for beginners. Advanced traders employ very strict risk management. Leverage trading carries a serious risk of capital loss, and you should never risk more than what you can afford to lose.
Futures trading also supports limit and market orders.
