In order to ensure the safety of the exchange, each market has a maximum position size and a function which determines the margin requirement at different position sizes.

Key Definitions:

incrementalInitialMarginFraction

  • The increase in the initial-margin-fraction for the market for each incrementalPositionSize that the user is over the baselinePositionSize.

incrementalPositionSize

  • The position size between each tick of incrementalInitialMarginFraction

baselinePositionSize

  • The largest position size without incrementing the initial-margin-fraction

maximumPositionSize

  • The absolute largest position size available

The initial margin starts with 5.0% (for 20x leverage trading of ETH and BTC markets) or 10% for all other markets. After reaching the baselinePositionSize, the required margin linearly increases by the incrementalInitialMarginFraction per incrementalPositionSize
