What is Margin Level?

Margin trading allows you to add leverage to your positions in order to increase your potential earnings and profits. Binance uses the margin level to evaluate the risk level of your margin account.

How is Margin Level calculated?

Margin Level = Total Assets Value/(Total Borrowed Value + Total Accrued Interest Value)

*The actual amount you can borrow will be calculated by the system automatically when you initiate a Borrow.

When your margin level2, you can trade and borrow, and transfer assets to the exchange wallet;

When 1.5<margin level≤2, you can trade and borrow, but you can’t transfer funds from your margin account to your exchange wallet;

When 1.3<margin level≤1.5, you can trade, but you can’t borrow, neither transfer funds from your margin account to your exchange wallet;

When 1.1<margin level≤1.3, our system will trigger a margin call and you will receive a notification through mail, text message and internal message.

When margin level≤1.1, our system will trigger the liquidation engine and we will send you a notification by mail, text message and internal message to inform you that all assets will be liquidated to pay back the interest and loan.

To avoid potential market manipulation, all BTC values are calculated with a composited index price which includes price data from multiple exchanges, rather than simple market price from Binance markets.
