What are Isolated & Cross Margin Modes

Cross Margin mode

Under the Cross Margin mode, all available balance in the Futures account can be used as a shared margin for all current positions.

When the margin of certain positions is less than the maintenance margin, the available balance in the Futures account will be added to that position and make up for the initial margin to avoid forced liquidation.

If the margin still does not cover the maintenance margin after all available balance is used, forced liquidation will be triggered.


Isolated Margin mode

Under the Isolated Margin mode, the margin for each position is separated, not shared. Margins must be added manually and promptly to avoid forced liquidation.


Leverage adjustments under different margin modes

By default, positions are opened using Cross Margin mode, and the leverage can be adjusted under both Isolated and Cross Margin modes. After the adjustment, the position margin will be recalculated, please pay attention to the change in liquidation price.



1. When there are pending orders in the current market, you can neither switch the margin mode nor adjust the leverage.

2. It is not possible to adjust the leverage if the available margin is insufficient to cover the additional margin required.

3. When increasing the leverage, it must not exceed the maximum leverage corresponding to the current position amount.
