Add margin

You can add margin to a position by placing an order in the same direction. The amount of margin you submit with your new order will be added to your existing position.

This can be useful in scenarios where you want to avoid liquidation or lower your leverage.


You have a 100 ETH long on BTC-USD at 10× leverage (10 ETH margin).

You submit a 50 ETH long on BTC-USD at 5× leverage (10 ETH margin).

Your new position is 150 ETH long on BTC-USD with 20 ETH margin, e.g. 7.5× leverage. You've successfully added margin and reduced the leverage of your position.
