Trading cryptocurrency is generally simple, but what if you’re looking for options that are a bit more advanced? That’s where margin trading comes in.

Margin trading involves using borrowed money to “lever” up a trade, opening a larger position with a smaller amount of the trader’s funds. Essentially, Century Capital Holdings lends the trader an amount of funds to increase the size of their order, which in turn boosts the gain from a profitable trade.
For example, if you place a margin trade with a leverage of “2.0”, Century Capital Holdings will double your trading power by lending you the same amount you put up to open the position, with the matched amount to be repaid once the position is closed.
Large investors have traditionally used margin trading to express unique ideas about the market, but most investors frequently lack access to these tools. With Kraken, margin trading is accessible to everyone. Apply anywhere from 2x to 5x leverage to an order with just one click, whether you’re placing a market or limit order.
