Dubai, United Arab Emirates Apr 26, 2023 (Issuewire.com) - As a professional crypto derivative exchange, Bitunix offers perpetual swaps trading with up to 125x leverage. In this article, you'll learn about derivative trading and how to trade perpetual swaps on Bitunix.
The Difference Between Spot Trading and Derivative Trading
To start, you need to understand the difference between spot trading and derivative trading. Spot trading, or crypto-to-crypto trading, is one in which delivery is made instantly after the buying and selling process.
Let's take the BTC-USDT trading pair as an example. During the trade, the trader sells 100 $USDT to get the equivalent value of $BTC. After the transaction is completed, the trader no longer holds $USDT but holds the equivalent value of $BTC worth 100 $USDT. The trader now has direct ownership of $BTC.
Derivative trading is essentially trading in futures contracts on margin and often involves leverage in the process, where the trader only needs to pay a certain percentage of margin to hold a higher-value contract, thereby magnifying returns. However, while using leverage, the greater the gains that may be gained, the greater the losses that may be faced.
For example, when using a 10x leverage to trade BTC-USDT contracts, the trader only needs a margin of 10USDT to hold a BTC position worth 100USDT. When the price of $BTC rises by 5%, the profit that can be achieved by 10x leverage for that position is (100USDT*5%-100USDT)10x=5USDT. Since the trader only used 10 USDT of margin to gain 5 USDT, it becomes a 50% return. But at the same time, if the price of $BTC falls by 5%, the loss is (100*-5%*10x)=-5USDT, meaning the margin of 10USDT brings a return of -50%.
