Leverage Limits for Spot products

No leverage is available for spot products, all spot trades need to be 100% funded at all times.

Leverage Limits for Perpetuals

EQONEX offers a maximum of 125x leverage on Perpetual positions. The maximum amount of leverage allowed for specific position sizes depends on which Perpetual product is traded, and is shown in the tables below. By design, our position limits align the expected risk on the platform with regard to trading volume and the size of the Liquidation Reserve. This is to reduce the probability of auto-deleveraging (ADL). These limits will be reviewed regularly and amended as necessary.

The Initial Margin required for a certain size position follows a tax style bracket approach, starting from the highest leverage bucket. If you trade more than one Perpetual product (e.g. BTC Perpetuals and ETH Perpetuals) the total Initial Margin required is the sum of the Initial Margin required for each product (e.g. Initial Margin required for the BTC Perpetual Position plus the Initial Margin required for the ETH Perpetual position). The same applies to the Margin Liquidation Trigger.
