ROAD TOWN, British Virgin Islands, January 30, 2020 – Bitfinex, a state-of-the-art digital asset trading platform, has launched margin trading for Tether Gold, enabling traders to execute more advanced strategies on the metal in a digital form.
Margin trading for Tether Gold with US dollar (XAU₮/USD), tether (XAU₮/USD₮t), and bitcoin (XAU₮/BTC) began on 30/01/20 at 12:00 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.
“The launch of margin trading on Tether Gold will allow more advanced trading strategies, enabling a more sophisticated means of hedging exposure and managing risk,” said Paolo Ardoino, CTO at Bitfinex. “Raising our leverage from 3.3x to 5x is a noteworthy development, and is also timely given growing interest in gold and the recent flight to assets perceived as a hedge against crisis events and geopolitical risks.”
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.
