Method 2: Click the Transfer button on Coin-M Swaps page in the “Derivatives Account” under “Balances”

If you wish to trade Coin-margined Swaps, you need to transfer underlying asset from Exchange Account to the “Coin-M Swaps Account”.
3. Switch trading unit/leverage
Unit: cont, coin
Leverage: you can change leverage before opening position or while holding positions without open orders.
4. Place an Order
Users can optionally use limit order, trigger order, trailing stop order, or Taker/Follow a Maker feature to open a position.
● Limit Order:
Users are required to enter a price (or choose an Optimal N price), and enter amount (or refresh the slip percent).
Limit orders can be used for opening or closing a position.
Meanwhile, you can set Stop-limit feature while opening a position. ＞＞＞Stop-limit operation Instruction
There are three effective mechanisms optional for limit orders, "Post only", "FOK (Fill Or Kill)", "IOC (Immediate Or Cancel)"; if no mechanism is selected, the limit order will be "always valid" in the market by default. ＞＞＞Limit Order Operation Instruction
● Trigger Order:
Users are required to set trigger price, buy/sell price and amount. When the last price reaches the trigger price, the system will place a limit order with the buy/sell price and amount. ＞＞＞Trading Guide of Trigger Orders
● Trailing Stop Order:
Users are required to set activation price, callback rate, buy/sell price and amount. When the last price meets with the activation price and callback rate, the strategy will be triggered, and the system will place a limit order with the preset price and amount.＞＞＞Operation Instruction of Trailing Stop Order
● Follow a Maker & Taker:
After “Follow a Maker & Taker” is enabled, the system will place a limit order (buy/sell) by using the price a user select from the order book, and the amount (available assets proportion, order book amount or fixed amount).
For “Follow a Maker” order, the system selects “Post Only” as the effective mechanism by default, otherwise, it turns to be a normal limit order.
As for “Taker” order, there are two effective mechanisms optional, "FOK (Fill Or Kill)" and "IOC (Immediate Or Cancel)"; if no mechanism is selected, the limit order will be "always valid" in the market by default. ＞＞＞Operation instruction on Taker & Follow a Maker
5. After the order is filled, the open position will be shown under the “Positions”, where you can execute many operations such as Close Long/Short, Stop-Limit, etc. While the unfilled part of the order will be shown under the “Open Orders”, and you can cancel it before it’s filled.
6. Assuming you wish to close a position, there are three types of options for you, that is, limit order, trigger order and trailing stop order. Alternatively, you also can execute the “Close Long/Short” operation under the “Positions”.
At the same time, when you close a positon, Flash Close feature (lightning icon) is available for limit orders, in which the system places a position-closing order with the optimal 30 price based on the BBO price orders, so as to make the order filled as soon as possible.
