In addition, Binance Futures has started updating the Maintenance Margin of COIN-M futures contracts periodically. The adjustment is expected to be completed in 10 weeks. The implementation times for next week are 2021-03-23 9:00 AM (UTC) and 2021-03-25 9:00 AM (UTC). To avoid being liquidated, please add more margin to your COIN-M Futures account or reduce your positions.
Risk Warning: Futures trading carries a substantial risk and the possibility of both significant profits and losses. Past gains are not indicative of future returns. All of your margin balance may be liquidated in the event of extreme price movement. The information here should not be regarded as financial or investment advice from Binance. All trading strategies are used at your discretion and your own risk. Binance will not be liable to you for any loss that might arise from your use of Futures.
