Open a position
To start trading, go to Trade and connect your wallet with the Arbitrum One network selected.
  1. 1.
    Select a market to trade.
  2. 2.
    Select a base currency. Your margin will be denominated in this currency.
  3. 3.
    Select leverage. Leverage multiplies your potential profit or loss on the trade.
  4. 4.
    Enter a trade size. This is equal to margin × leverage. For example, a trade size of 50 ETH at 50× leverage will use 1 ETH plus fee in actual balance (margin) from your wallet.
    If you think price will rise in the future, open a long. If you think price will fall, open a short.


Once submitted, your order will appear as "Settling" in your positions panel while it is picked up and priced by the dark oracle network (usually a few seconds).
Once settled, your position's execution price and unrealized profit or loss (P/L) appear.


As long as your position is open, it will incur funding, which is charged hourly. The hourly funding rate appears on the confirmation screen prior to opening a position.
All P/L numbers shown in your dashboard are already inclusive of all funding charges.

Profit & Loss

Here, you opened a 5 ETH position at 4077. If the market rises by 1%, your P/L will equal:
5ETH×1%=0.05ETH5 ETH \times 1\% = 0.05 ETH
Conversely, if the market falls by 1%, your P/L will equal:
5ETH×1%=0.05ETH5 ETH \times -1\% = -0.05 ETH


If your loss exceeds -80% of the margin tied to the position, the position is liquidated.
You can choose to avoid liquidation by adding margin to your position.
