How do I calculate the liquidation price on KuCoin Futures?
To maintain a position, traders are required to hold a margin equal to a certain percentage of the position value, known as the maintenance margin rate. If the position margin does not meet the requirements of the maintenance margin rate, the position will be liquidated and the maintenance margin will be lost. You can view the maintenance margin rate of a contract from Contract Specification.
Impact of Funding Rate on Position PNL
Unlike delivery contracts, perpetual contracts do not require delivery or liquidation on expiration, meaning that they can be held in perpetuity. As there is no delivery, a mechanism is needed to ensure that the contract price and spot price are consistent. This mechanism is the funding rate. Put simply, perpetual contracts use the funding rate to anchor the contract price to the spot price.
How do I set a take profit/stop loss through a stop order?
Stop orders are triggered when the specified trigger price is reached. When triggered, they will open a position through limit order or market order. Stop orders can be used to set a take profit/stop loss, which frees you up from having to keep an eye on the market. Stop orders require you to manually set the trigger type and price, order type and price, and order quantity.
