Trading the Hang Seng 50 with margin is essentially allowing you to make a bigger trade than you have capital available for by borrowing the additional funds from PrimeXBT. The position you open will not require the full amount to be deposited but rather the margin will instead be used as collateral.
If your trade on the Hang Seng 50 is successful under the margin, you will be able to earn additional profit too. However, the risk is that if the trade is unsuccessful the losses can be magnified too.
For example, If a trader takes a long position of $2,000 on the Hang Seng 50 and it rises by 10%, using 5x leverage the same rise becomes a 50% profit, or $1,000. A similar spot trade without leverage would result in only 10% profit, or $200.
Disclaimer: Margin trading also comes with inherent risks if the position moves against the trade. You should never utilize 100% leverage and never invest more than you can afford to lose.
