Margin Trading

By CoinGecko | Updated on Mar 03, 2020
It is a way of investing by borrowing money from a broker (or in crypto, an exchange or platform) to trade. The borrowing requires you to collateralize a minimum value of your own assets. If during the trade, the market moves negatively to your trade, a margin call will takes place so that your trade account retains the ratio of your borrowed funds to the collateralized assets.
