What is Customized Leverage?

Customized Leverage allows you to reduce and/or increase the desired maximum leverage on any of your Main or Sub Account(s) at any time. This gives you the option to reduce the risk of getting liquidated in BTC or ETH Perpetuals. Leverage can be customized on an individual account basis so that you may choose a different level of leverage for different accounts.

How does it work?

There are 7 leverage steps as follows:

Leverage

1x

2x

3x

5x

10x

20x

125x

After the action, the leverage on the specific account can never exceed the chosen amount of leverage. However, a leverage curve still applies, so for larger positions, the total leverage that EQONEX allows may be lower than the maximum leverage you select. In that case, you cannot exceed the maximum leverage EQONEX allows. See the specific leverage and margin requirements for each curve in Custom Margin Curves.

If you wish to reduce the maximum leverage, but you have open derivative position(s) in that account, EQONEX will check your current Total Account Margin against the new Initial Margin requirements to prevent unintended liquidations. Should your Total Account Margin be lower than the new Initial Margin requirement, you will be required to move more funds to the said account or reduce your perpetuals positions size. Read more on Liquidation and Cross Collateral Liquidation.
