What are the fees?

How are computed trading fees?

Initially, Total fee paid = 0 and maintenance margin = opening fee reserved + closing fee reserved, with opening fee reserved = quantity / entry price Tier1 fee and closing fee reserved = quantity / initial liquidation price Tier1 fee.

At the time of trading, Total fee paid = opening fee and maintenance margin = opening fee reserved + closing fee reserved - opening fee. Opening fee reserved and opening fee can be different in case of change of Tier fee.

When closing a position, Total fee paid = opening fee + closing fee and maintenance margin = opening fee reserved + closing fee reserved - opening fee - closing fee. And users will receive P&L + margin + maintenance margin.

What are the funding fees?

CFD Positions are subject to a funding fee. This is because when you buy or sell a CFD, LN Markets is effectively lending you BTC.
