Margin trading

Bitfinex allows users to trade with up to 5x leverage by receiving funding from the peer to peer margin funding platform.

Users can enter an order to borrow the desired amount of funding at the rate and duration of their choice, or they can simply open a position and Bitfinex will take out funding for them at the best available rate at that time.

Derivatives

Users wishing to mitigate the risks associated with the volatility of Digital Tokens may trade Derivative Products on the Derivatives Site. Perpetual contracts are already available and further Derivative Products are under development.

Derivative Products can be traded using a Derivative Wallet credited with USDt0, a Digital Token which can be obtained by converting USDt, as explained in more details on our Knowledge Base.

Advanced order types

We know that entering multiple orders repeatedly is not efficient and can be very tedious. To streamline this task, we created the Scaled Orders tool for our users. It’s an algorithmic order type designed to enable traders to focus more on strategy instead of spending the time manually entering orders. The tool enables our customers to automatically create multiple limit orders across a user-determined price range.

At the same time, traders still have control as they can set the diversity and the distribution of the orders. Check out our Support page for further details and a tutorial on Scaled Orders.

Honey Framework

Creating custom order types and event-driven automated trading strategies is no longer the preserve of specialist algorithmic trading firms. We have made these strategies accessible to our customers through the Honey Framework integration. What’s more, our latest development has made it easier to use, even without any coding knowledge or developer know-how.
