Are CFD funds allowed to go negative

Question

Guest crazydave

Hi,

 

Currently, both my CFD funds and equity are positive.  However, I can think of a number of scenarios where funds could go negative whilst equity remains positive - running winners and cutting losers for example, or interest charges outweighing dividend adjustments on long holds.

 

So, are funds allowed to go negative as long as equity remains positive?

 

And if so, can I withdraw funds whilst funds are negative as long as equity remains positive following withdrawal?

Hi there,

 

Firstly, clients need to have enough funds (cash balance) on the account before any positions could be opened. The equity is the difference between the funds and P/L. If the equity is lower than the margin requirement, the available funds will be below zero and the account would be on margin call. In this situation, clients won't be able to withdraw funds and the positions become at risk of being closed. Funds do not change by opening new positions. Before any positions being closed, the funds would be the same amount as well until any profit or loss are realised. In short, funds have to be positive before any positions could be opened and will stay as the same before any positions are closed. I hope this helps.

    • I am already staking my eth on the platform and currently holding BGB to explore their PoolX event that has a similar high APR.
    • Risk averse ways of earning always seem like good opportunities to earn some good bucks in the Crypto Space.  Certain platforms have taken it upon themselves to bring up worthwhile ways of giving users latitude to earn.  Bitget in its usual manner have brought forth an event to let users earn just by staking ETH. The APR is really Juicy, It is about 20%.  The event is exclusively for African new sign-ups. It seems like one to participate in for the newbies. Participating is relatively simple, you just need to navigate to platform's earn product and choose the corresponding product to stake and earn passively without necessarily risking anything.
