Margin trading for Tether Gold with US dollar (XAU₮/USD), tether (XAU₮/USD₮), and bitcoin (XAU₮/BTC) began 30/01/20 at 2:00 PM UTC. These pairs can be traded with an initial equity of 20% and a maximum leverage of 5x. Furthermore, the maximum leverage for BTC/USD has been increased from 3.3x to 5x.

Margin trading enables traders to borrow funds to increase leverage, offering the potential for greater profits than in traditional trading. Still, the potential for greater rewards also comes with higher levels of risk, particularly given the volatility of digital assets.
