3. Margin trade
Margin trading is an acceptable form of trading that uses borrowed funds from a third-party/exchange to magnify the investment through leverage.
The principal of Long is to buy at a low price and sell at a higher price, repay the loan and interest minus the principal and handling fees, the remaining is profit.
The principal of Short is to borrow an asset, sell the asset and then buy back the asset at a lower price. The difference after loan and interest repayment minus the principal and handling fees will be profit. Short sellers are betting that the asset they sell will drop in price.
Margin trading magnifies the investment so please perform due diligence and fully understand the characteristics of margin trading and with caution based on your risk tolerance.
