In futures trading, you can participate in market movements and make a profit by going long or short on a futures contract.

By going long, a trader buys a futures contract with the expectation that it will rise in value in the future.

Conversely, a trader sells a futures contract to go short, to bet on prices to decline in the future. 

On our Binance Futures platform, you can go long or short with leverage to reduce risk or seek profits in volatile markets. Follow these steps to start trading on our Binance Futures platform:

  1. Deposit USDT/BTC into your futures account as margin
  2. Select the level of leverage to your preference
  3. Choose the appropriate order type (buy or sell)

In spot markets, traders can only profit when the value on an asset increase. In contrast, through futures contracts, you can profit in both ways as the value of an asset rise or falls.
