How to Buy Long in Margin Markets

How to magnify gains on margin trading if you think the price will go up?

1. Take BCH/USDT for example, suppose the maximum leverage is 5X, and you think the price of BCH will go up from 200 USDT to 400 USDT.

2. If you have 2,000 USDT, you can borrow 8,000 USDT using 5X leverage, and buy 50 BCH at 200 USDT each. When BCH price goes up to 400 USDT, you can sell 50 BCH to get 20,000 USDT for repayment.

3. The profit is: 50 BCH * (400 - 200)  = 10,000 USDT.

4. If you invest the 2,000 USDT on spot trading, you will only make a profit of 2,000 USDT. But with 5X leverage, your profit is magnified 5 times.

Note: To simplify the calculation, the above example ignores the borrowing interests and the results are for reference only.

Risk warning:

Margin trading not only allows you to magnify gains with fewer funds but can also saddle you with amplified losses when the market moves against you. Therefore, we strongly advise entry-level users not to use highly leveraged trading to avoid forced liquidation or even bankruptcy.
