How to calculate the initial margin in a MoonXBT USDT perpetual contract?

In margin trading, the initial margin is the minimum amount required to open a position. The leverage used by traders directly affects the initial margin. Lower leverage requires a higher initial margin.

We can use a formula to calculate the initial margin in USDT perpetual trading.


Initial Margin = Position Size × Position Average Price / Leverage


Trader A places a 0.5 BTC contract at $50,000 with 10x leverage.

Initial Margin = 0.5 × 50,000 / 10 = 2,500 USDT
