Increasing ETHUSD Swap Risk Limits for Lower Margin Requirements on Large Positions

Effective 3 May 2021 at 08:00 UTC, we will increase the risk limits for the ETHUSD swap from 50 to 75 XBT. From that time, those who have ETHUSD Swap positions greater than 50 XBT will immediately be eligible for lower margin requirements.

There will be no changes  to any of our Base Initial Margin or Base Maintenance Margin rates – this change relates to the size of position to which those rates apply. Also, everyone with positions equal to or smaller than 50 XBT will continue to have the same market-leading margin requirements as before.
