● Settlement order (position closing) method
When a new order is filled (including partial filling), the position can be resolved by changing the "margin / loss limit" price on the order screen to confirm the profit or loss.
<Example of a BTC / USDT settlement>
Trade Price: 9,000.00 USDT (New Buy Limit Order)
Profit Taking price: 12,000.00 USDT
Loss cut price: 7,500.00 USDT
Current price: 11,000.00 USDT
With regards to settlement when holding a position under the above conditions, there are two ways to determine the profit or loss at the current price without waiting for the "profit taking or loss cut price" to be reached and cleared.
Method ① Bring "profit taking and loss cut prices" closer to the current price on the "order details" screen
Method ② Change the settlement price to current price (example: 11,000.00 USDT)
By performing the above, the position will be settled more easily.
★ A Point for Settlement = Settlement is conducted by changing the profit taking and loss cut prices.
<Important: Notes on settlement orders>
※ After placing a new buy order, placing the same number of new selling orders, it will not be closed (position closing) even if it is filled.
In this case, it will be in the state of "there are two filled new buying positions and new selling positions". →Settlement orders are controlled by changing the profit taking or loss cut price.
If you do not place a settlement order after a new order has been filled, you will be able to hold the position for a long time and daily borrowing fees will incur. After the expiration date, the position is forced to settle and the profit or loss is recognized. →You can change the settlement order at any time during the validity period.
● Changing the Settlement Order
If you change the settlement order, the unpaid profit taking / loss cut order is automatically canceled and re-ordered at the changed price.
<How to change settlement orders>
After a new buy or sell order has been filled, you need to enter a settlement order.
① If you have not set a profit taking, loss cut settlement order price
② If you want to change the settlement order price for profit taking, loss cut
Trade screen > Margin (pending orders) > Navigate to > select Order Details.
・When you click on the "Change profit taking / loss cut price" the profit taking and loss cut prices will be displayed and you will be able to enter the prices.
・After entering the numerical value, click on “Save changed setting” to change the setting.
・Click on “Cancel Changes” to return to the previous values.
This way, if the loss cut / profit taking order is unsettled (the position remains), you can control the position by changing the value of the profit taking / loss cut price.
※ Please note that you will not change the price if you leave the field blank or enter 0 when changing the profit taking / loss cut price.
【Important】About Market Settlements
If you select “Market Settlement”, the current position will be settled at the market price. Select this option if you want to settle immediately without limiting the price.
When you click on the Market Settlement button, the confirmation screen as shown above will be displayed.
・Confirm・・・Execute market settlement immediately
・Cancel・・・Cancel market order
※ Another way to use the Market Settlement button (order cancellation function)
・After placing an order, if the order has not yet been executed, pressing “Market Settlement” will cancel the order itself.
● Timing of Orders
If a profit taking price is set, opposite trading orders (including partial fills) are ordered as soon as new orders are filled.
・ New purchase order is executed → A settlement sale order is ordered at the same time
・ New sale order is executed →A settlement buy order is ordered at the same time
Care should be taken when setting up loss cuts with Margin Trading.
With regards to loss cut prices, they are not ordered immediately after the new order has been filled, but the latest price once it is placed after the loss cut set price has been entered and advanced. This is illustrated in the figure below.
New Limit Buy: 9,000 USDT is filled and holds a buy position, the price goes down, and a loss sell limit is ordered when it falls below 7,500 USDT.
The loss settlement is complete when the lowered price returns to 7,500 USDT again.
① If a part of a new order is filled (partially filled) and the profit taking order is filled as it is (taking a profit), the remaining unfilled orders will not be canceled automatically. Please cancel your order by yourself.
Conversely, if a loss cut order is filled, the remaining new orders are cancelled.
When a loss cut order (stop loss) is triggered, a profit taking order is automatically canceled. This is because loss cut settlement is executed earlier than profit taking.
② If the settlement order is partially filled, the loan interest, transaction fees, and the loan will be repaid in accordance with the ratio. Depending on the realized gains and losses, the margin balance of partially filled orders may be adjusted.
If the margin retention rate exceeds 120%, funds can be transferred between your margin account and your ordinary account. However, the margin cannot be moved if there is a new order that has not been completely filled.
●About settings of settlement prices
The settings for profit taking and loss cut prices are as follows:
<For New Purchases>
The profit taking price is set higher than the order price, and the loss cut price is set lower than the order price and lower than the optimal selling price.
Profit taking price ≧ Order price ≧ Loss cut price
Optimal Selling Price > Loss cut price
<For New Sales>
The profit taking price is set lower than the order price, and the loss cut price is set higher than the order price.
Loss cut price> order price> profit taking price
Loss cut price > optimal buying price
<Adjusting the profit taking / loss cut price of the buying order>
1. All new orders are filled
Profit taking price > Loss cut price
2. If all new orders have not been filled yet
Profit taking price > Order price> Loss cut price
<Adjusting the profit-taking / loss-cut price of the sales order>
1. All new orders are filled
Loss cut price > profit taking price
2. If all new orders have not been filled yet
Loss cut price > order price > profit taking price
<Priority of settlement order>
Automatic loss cut order > Loss cut order > Other orders
[About the Margin Account Margin Balance]
● What is a Margin Account?
With CROSS exchange, there is an account dedicated to Margin Trading separate from a user’s ordinary account.
For all CROSS exchange users that have passed Identity Verification, there is no need to open a new margin account.
After opening a new account, please note that those who have not completed KYC cannot use Margin Trading.
<Asset Management by Transfer>
Since the margin account is a dedicated USDT account, you can start using it once you transfer funds from your ordinary account.
By separating the ordinary account from the margin account, customers can operate with confidence. (In Margin Trading, only funds in the margin account can be used for trading.)
Transfer of funds in the account is done by you, as the exchange does not move your funds for you.
● The Margin Balance is calculated for each order
With Margin Trading, initial required margin (initial margin) is calculated for each new order.
Users should first make sure that the balance in their margin account meets the initial margin requirement.
Margin account balance ≥ Initial margin balance
● Margin Maintenance Rate: Starts at 100%
Since Margin Trading calculates the margin for each order, the margin maintenance rate starts from the state of 1 order = 100%.
Initial Margin Balance = Order Quantity * MAX Price (Latest Quote, Order Price) / Leverage Multiple
※ MAX price refers to adopting the higher price by comparing the latest quotes and the order price.
・Latest quote: 100
・Order price: 90
・MAX price = 100
・Latest quote: 100
・Order price: 105
・MAX price = 105
● About Automatic Loss Cuts
If there is a margin maintenance rate of 30% or less among the positions held, selecting the option "Refill the Margin Automatically" will give priority to the margin of the relevant order from the balance of the margin account. You can compensate for the margin so that the maintenance rate is at 80%.
(If the balance in the margin account cannot maintain the margin maintenance rate above 80%, a loss cut will be performed automatically.)
If you do not use this option, the position will be automatically loss cut when the margin maintenance rate falls below 30%, even if there is sufficient funds in the margin account.
If the margin retention rate decline cannot be resolved due to a lack of balance in the margin account, an automatic loss cut will be triggered.
● About Withdrawals
・ If the margin maintenance rate of the order exceeds 120%, you can move the margin from the order to the margin account by yourself. (If you move funds, the margin maintenance rate fluctuates due to unrealized gains and partial contracts.)
・ If there are unsettled orders in the new order, the margin cannot be withdrawn.
・ The order will be returned to the margin account automatically when the order is in the "settlement complete" status.
<Structure of New Purchase Orders>
BTC / USDT Buy (Long Position)
・New purchase = Borrow USDT and purchase BTC with USDT as collateral (margin) (= holding a BTC buy position)
・Settlement sale = Repay USDT borrowed after selling BTC (= position canceled)
Margin Maintenance Rate = [(initial margin balance + additional margin balance – transferred margin balance ± recognized profit/loss ± unrealized profit/loss) / (initial margin balance * prepayment principal / initial principal)] × 100%
This formula shows the proportion of margin to the total of all transaction costs, margin, and profit / loss generated by the trade.
・Margin balance = Initial margin balance + Additional margin balance – Transferred margin balance ± Realized margin
<Structure of New Selling Orders>
BTC / USDT Sell (Short Position)
・ New Sell = Borrow BTC from the exchange with USDT as collateral (margin) and then sell BTC (= holding BTC sell position)
・ Settlement Buy = Buy back BTC and repay borrowed BTC (= position cancellation)
Formula: (Same as a New Buy)
<Explanation of terms>
・Price difference = Contract rate – Latest base rate of the corresponding trade pair
・Fees = Fees for the portion of the order filled + Fees that may be incurred when cleared at the current rate
・Additional margin balance = to add funds from the margin account to increase the margin balance
・Transferred margin balance = Surplus margin returned to the margin account from orders with profit
● Profitability and Settlement of Positions
<Unrealized gains and losses>
If a new order has been filled and the position has not been settled, then the resulting unrealized gains and losses are displayed as "unrealized gains and losses."
Formula for unrealized gains and losses on buy orders:
(CROSS exchange latest quotes – average contract rate) * (new order quantity – settlement order committed quantity) – borrowing interest before repayment – unpaid fees = "positive or negative value"
Formula for unrealized gains and losses for sell orders:
(Average contract rate – latest quote from CROSS exchange) * (new order quantity – settlement order commitment fixed amount) – borrowing interest before repayment – unpaid commission = "positive or negative value"
※ In the case of both buy and sell orders, the calculation result is "positive" if it means "unnecessary profit" and "negative" means it is a loss.
<Realized gains and losses>
When a settlement order is filled (including partial fills), realized gains and losses are displayed.
Formula for the profit / loss of the purchase order:
(Settlement order execution average rate – New order execution average rate) x Settlement quantity – Repayment borrowed interest – Payed commission = "positive or negative value"
Formula for selling order realized profit and loss:
(New Order Committed Average Rate – Settlement Order Committed Average Rate) x Settlement Quantity – Repaid Borrowing Interest – Payed Fee = "Positive or Negative Value"
※ In the case of both buy and sell orders, a calculation result of “positive” means unrealized gain, and “negative” means loss.
● Return of Funds
After the order is settled (position closed), the profit and loss is calculated in USDT and the funds are returned to the margin account.
① If the balance of the margin account is "positive," funds can be moved between the ordinary account and the margin account.
(2) If the balance of the margin account becomes "0 or less," you can deposit money from your ordinary account to the margin account only.
If the settlement order is partially filled, the principal, interest and fees are repaid according to the proportion of the filled position. Before all settlement orders are filled, the realized gains and losses resulting from partial fills may affect the margin balance change.
<If the balance of the Margin Account is negative (minus)>
Users should first make the balance of the margin positive (plus) by "depositing funds, position settlement, order cancellation" etc.
<How to make account balances positive>
・Addition of funds (Sending USDT from your ordinary account to your margin account)
・Settlement of filled orders
・Cancel pending orders
※ If you do not have USDT in your ordinary account, convert other coins to USDT on the trading platform and transfer them to your margin account. Until the funds in the account are positive, you will not be able to withdraw from the margin account or other normal transactions using USDT.
※ The exchange does not operate the user's ordinary account without permission.
● About Borrowing Fees
<Timing of borrowing fees occurrence>
Fees are calculated on an hourly basis when the user borrows a coin and enters into a leveraged transaction.
・The Borrowing Fee per hour: 0.00166667%
1 Day (24 hours) borrowring fee ＝ 0.04%
0.04 % ÷ 24h＝0.00166667% / hour
・Time unit definition: one (1) hour is counted from the time of order placement.
① Order cancellation within 1 hour of ordering: No fee
If you cancel an Unfilled Order within 1 hour of placing the order, the cancellation fee is free.
② Cancellation of an order after 1 hour since placement: Fee is charged every hour
A fee (0.00166667%) will be charged hourly once an hour passes after an order has been placed.
③ Transaction completed within 1 hour of order placement: 1 hour fee
Even if the transaction is completed within one hour from order to settlement, a one hour fee (0.00166667% x 1 hour) will be charged.
Margin + profit / loss after deduction of commission (0.00166667% x 1 hour) will be returned to your margin account.
④ Transaction completed 3 hours after placing order: 3 hour fee
If the transaction is completed three hours after placing the order, a fee of three hours will be charged.
Fee: (0.00166667% x 3 hours) deducted from the margin balance + Profit/Loss will be returned to your margin account.
<Rules on Borrowing Fees>
① Borrowing fees can be paid with XEX
If you pay fees with unlocked XEX, it will be deducted directly at the time of settlement. If the balance of XEX is sufficient, the margin maintenance rate and unrealized gains / losses will not be affected by borrowing fees.
② The maximum borrowing period is 30 days
The maximum borrowing period for each order is 30 days. Orders canceled over 30 days x 24 hours will be canceled automatically.
③ Formula for Borrowing fees
The fee (interest) is calculated at the USDT rate at the time of borrowing. The interest accrued when the position is settled is paid from the user's margin balance in proportion to the settlement order's fulfillment rate.
Interest on Borrowing = Borrowing Period * Amount Borrowed (USDT rate at time of borrowing) x Interest Rate
④ About borrowing interest rates
Interest rates may be adjusted in the future, but changes to interest rates will not affect orders already placed. (Current status: 0.0016667% per hour)
● About Trading Fees
① The margin trading fees are the same as ordinary trade fees. However, all fees are calculated in USDT.
② When a new order is filled, the fee for the filled part is calculated. Once the settlement order has been filled, the “new order fee and all settlement order fees” will be collected from the margin account according to the proportion of the arrangement.
The “Fee on the filled portion” includes the execution of a new order and the settlement of a settlement order. This fee is deducted from the user's assets (including margin and settlement income).
③ If the fee is deducted, the same amount will be paid to the user in full with XEX (all paid XEX with come with a 90-day lock). Thus, the commission fees on leverage trading are virtually free.
● About the borrowing limits of coins
① Borrowing limit
Margin per order: 1,000 USDT
(Example: In case of 10 times leverage, trading 1,000 USDT is possible with 100 USDT)
