What is Leverage Trading?
Before delving into the business of the day, I thought it wise to define Leverage Trading as you will be seeing a lot of it within the text.
This reflects the amount of a trader’s own funds (margin) required in comparison to the size of the position that they wish to open(1:1000, 1:100, 1:50, 1:20, 1:10, 1:2 ).
This simply refers to the extent to which you are speculating that the price of an asset can rise. Say you pick XAU and open a position of 1:100. This means that you are speculating that XAU will rise 100x.
This is the amount of a Trader’s own funds that are required to open a position. This one is simply the amount that you need to put down before you can open a position.
For example – With 1:100 leverage, you only need 0.01 BTC of your personal funds (Margin) to trade with 1 BTC.
Leverage Trading (or Margin trading) is a trading technique involving the use of borrowed funds, in order to increase potential profits.
Leveraged trading allows you to trade and make a profit with volumes much larger than you would be able to if you are using only your personal funds.
Like in the example above about trading 1:100 with 1 BTC, you are providing 0.01 BTC while Prime XBT is lending you the rest.
Leverage is a key feature of a PrimeXBT trading platform and can be a powerful tool for a trader. You can use it to take advantage of comparatively small price movements, ‘gear’ your portfolio for greater position size, and to make your capital grow faster.
Leveraged trading allows traders to profit from both rising and declining markets by means of Long buying or Short selling strategies.
Long and Short Strategy
In simple terms, when you open a long position, you intend to profit from the increase in the price of the asset. When you open a short position, you intend to profit from the fall in price of the asset.
Having cleared the air on this, let’s get to the main discussion.
Prime XBT Overview
It offers up to x1000 leverage which allows you to maximize profit potential and profit from both rising and falling markets.
The company was launched in 2018 and has grown exponentially since its inception.
It provides its clients access to top-tier liquidity and a wide range of trading tools.
The exchange is unregulated and works with cryptocurrencies only.
As a Bitcoin-based exchange, Prime XBT operates in an almost borderless global manner with minimal compliance to regulation.
There is not much information available about the company but its large market selection and high leverage options have challenged the big names in margin trading.
On Prime XBT, no documents are required for verification. Your privacy while trading digital currencies is its utmost priority and thus you are not required to undergo KYC procedures, exposing personal information.
This leaves your email as your primary form of ID. Losing access to your email may result in you being unable to access your PrimeXBT account. I strongly recommend enabling 2FA on your email account.
But how does this even work? What differentiates it from the other trading platforms?
I explained that below.
How Does Prime XBT Work?
To explain this clearly, I will run you through how a Traditional crypto exchange works;
On Luno for example, you can trade crypto-fiat or crypto-crypto pairs. Now, let’s say you are trading crypto-crypto pair – BTC/ETH for instance. You are buying ETH with BTC and Vice versa. In this case, you are buying the actual asset, you can choose to withdraw any at any time i.e ETH or BTC.
But on Prime XBT, it a different ball game.
Here, you are speculating on the prices of the various assets with BTC. Let’s take ETH/USDT for example.
You can speculate the ETH will gain or lose value against USDT. and you do this in BTC.
Let’s say you speculate using 1BTC that the price of ETH will increase against USDT over 24 hours. If it does so by 10% you would make a profit of 0.1BTC leaving you with a balance 1.1BTC.
In this case, you are not buying or selling the actual assets (ETH/USDT) you are only speculating on their price movement using BTC.
But it does not stop there, PrimeXBT lets you speculate in this price movement with leverage. Thus, the gain of 10% above with 10X leverage is 100% with is 1BTC.
This is how Prime XBT works which is quite different from conventional exchanges.
Let’s now look at the features of Prime XBT.

Prime XBT is a global exchange that supports most countries of the world. I say most countries because you cannot access its services from certain countries such as :

- Any state/country/jurisdiction that is embargoed by the USA
Prime XBT’s Fees
There are two types of fees: Trade fee and Overnight financing.
The Trade fee is incurred each time you buy or sell assets on the market (i.e. each time you open and close a position):
- 0.05% for Cryptocurrencies
- 0.001% for Forex
- 0.01% for Indices and Commodities
Overnight financing is withheld from Trading account balance at 00:00 UTC, for any position that is carried into the new trading day.
Any position closed before 00:00 UTC will not be charged at all.
Overnight financing is not charged on weekends for markets that are closed during this time. However, a triple financing rate is due on Thursday 00:00 UTC.
Detailed information regarding fees and trading conditions for all available instruments can be found here: https://primexbt.com/fees.
Withdrawal fee – 0.0005BTC
All customer accounts are completely Bitcoin-based. This means that all deposits, withdrawals and account balances are all kept in Bitcoin.
When you make a deposit, there is a neat API that is linked to Changelly that allows users to buy Bitcoin or exchange altcoins into Bitcoin for trading purposes.
Forex trading adds the big fiat currencies to the trading list with USD, EUR, AUD, GBP, JPY, and CHF available for trading in various pairs.
But, though you have leverage trading available for these pairs, you can only make withdrawals in Bitcoin.
Prime XBT Trading Limits
The limit is a restriction on the size of a position each individual client can maintain with PrimeXBT. The exchange will not allow clients to place orders which will exceed the limit if executed.
The restriction is set by the PrimeXBT risk management department and depends on such factors as instrument liquidity, volatility, and other market conditions.
Find the limits stated in the diagram below.
Though there are no withdrawal limits, your balance has to be more than the withdrawal fee of 0.0005 BTC before you can make withdrawals.
For deposits, the minimum amount you can deposit is 0.001BTC
