1. Please refer to the updated Risk Limit Level to place an order. Please note that the current risk limit level is only supported on the Web. It will be updated on App in December.

2. The liquidation of the existing Futures positions of the above contracts are based on the current risk limit level. New positions opened after the scheduled upgrade will be executed based on the new risk limit level.

3. Users can adjust the risk limit level by themselves. To avoid liquidation, the system will automatically cancel all the open orders of users and replenish margin to the account during the upgrade. By the time, the liquidation price will also change according to the changes in the maintenance margin rate.
