Kraken Bitcoin Exchange Launches Margin Trading | Business Wire

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kraken, a San Francisco-based Bitcoin exchange, is pleased to announce

the launch of margin trading. Margin is an exciting instrument that

allows clients to amplify their trading profits and gain in both up and

down markets.

Kraken is now one of the few exchanges allowing clients to trade

bitcoins on margin. Within the next few weeks, Kraken will be

offering up to 20x leverage.

Margin trading is available to clients who have verified their accounts

to Tier 3 or Tier 4.

Currently margin trading is only available for the bitcoin-euro currency

pair (XBT/EUR). However, clients can margin trade the XBT/EUR pair using

their USD balance.

At launch, Kraken is initially offering up to 3x leverage, meaning that

a margined position can gain 3x more than the underlying move in bitcoin

price. A 4% gain in bitcoin price means a 12% gain in a 3x long

position. Traders can similarly leverage their gains when the market

drops. A 4% drop in bitcoin price means a 12% gain in a 3x short


Opening a margin position is as simple as toggling a button in the order

form to select the level of leverage and all the other order details

work the same way they do for normal trades, including the many advanced

order types Kraken supports. Open positions are easily closed with an

opposing leveraged order. If you go long 3 bitcoins with a leveraged buy

order, you can close the position by selling 3 bitcoins in a leveraged

sell order.

Initially there is no extra fee for margin trading. You simply pay your

normal trade fee on the opening and closing volume of the margin

position. So if you would normally pay 0.10% for a trade, you will pay

0.10% to open a margin position and 0.10% to close that position.

Positions open for more than 24 hours will also be charged a 0.05%

renewal fee to keep the position open for the next 24 hours. Traders who

wish to avoid this fee should close their position within 24 hours.

Guide and FAQ.
