So how can you reap such benefits even with a small capital? Well, most of the high-risk high-reward traders make use of leverage trading to earn enormous profits. Let’s understand how leverage trading works:
BitMEX exchange allows its users to make use of leverage trading. Basically, it means users can borrow money from the exchange to buy crypto. However, the interest rate is dependent on the trade but can inherently be as low as 3.65% per year. That way traders can make a massive profit from leveraged trading.
For example, let’s assume you bet $100 on BTC without any leverage. So, if there is a 10% rise in BTC value, your profit will be $10. Whereas if you bet the same amount of $100 with 100x leverage, your profit will be as high as $1000 on the same 10% rise in the price value of BTC. That’s the potential of leveraged trading through which traders book enormous profit. However, one should keep in mind that along with profit, the leveraged trading also increases the risk to higher manifolds.
One of the powerful features with BitMEX is the leverage trading calculator, which determines the potential profit and loss on order based on the amount of leverage. Basically, it will show you the liquidation price so that you can amend the leverage and position size to suit your risk tolerance level. BitMEX, as a trading platform, suits various users, including intermediate cryptocurrency traders who are acquainted with trading volatile risk assets and exposure to margin trading. Due to the platform’s various innovations, the exchange is now known as the world’s largest cryptocurrency derivatives platform to speculate on the market to earn Bitcoin.
