We at CEX.IO are highly excited to announce the launch of margin trading on our platform, as of today. From now on, you are welcome to trade BTC/USD and ETH/BTC with 1:2 and 1:3 leverages. 

Margin trading is a method of trading that involves borrowing money. It allows you to trade more than you’d be able to trade using your funds only. By opening long and short positions, you can get profit on the price growth or fall, respectively. 

Bitcoin and Ether Margin trading offered by CEX.IO has a range of competitive advantages making it easy and attractive even for beginners. Thus, there is no need to open any extra margin account to trade with leverage, and borrowing funds is done automatically together with position placement. 

Killer feature of CEX.IO’s margin trading is a unique risk-preventing system guaranteeing that trading on leverage cannot move your balance to negative values. Margin trading fees include commission for position opening and rollover fee that is charged only for efficient time period, while position is opened.

Having launched margin trading for BTC/USD and ETH/BTC, we are planning to introduce trading on leverage for other trading pairs in the nearest time.  

To trade on margin, please proceed to Trade Page on CEX.IO, and select Margin Trading tab under the Market Depth chart. To trade with leverage via CEX.IO API, please enable position opening in the profile and generate a new API key.  Check out the updated documentation with functions related to margin trading. Please also note that on CEX.IO, USD is the collateral currency for BTC/USD pair, and BTC is the collateral currency for ETH/BTC pair.
