Introduction to trading futures contracts
The available leverages for futures contract are 10x and 20x. OKEx futures contracts features: OKEx futures contract does not involve any fiat currency.
It is not restricted by regulations and allows investors of any country or region to participate in trading. Traditional bitcoin futures contracts are expressed in USD. Each contract represents a certain amount of BTC. The biggest problem of these contracts is the leverage multiplier varies greatly due to price volatility, which makes them very difficult to perform the functions of hedging and arbitrage, especially for long term contracts.
This allows the leverage multiplier to be fixed, in order to aid hedging and arbitrage. The design greatly helps to stablize the profit or loss: The profit will be USD after selling the contract 10x of capital. The leverage is very stable no matter how the price fluctuates. It helps investors to hedge and arbitrage to manage their funds. OKEx designed this system to prevent the common manipulation strategies circulating in the market.
