Margin trading does not result in any exchange of currency in your account.
- If you open a long position with a leveraged buy order, you will not receive cryptocurrency in your account.
- If you open a short position with a leveraged sell order, cryptocurrency will not be deducted from your account.
Instead, all profit or losses from your margin position are unrealized until you close the position, at which point adjustments to your currency balances will be made to account for the profit or loss.
Adjustments to your currency balances are usually made in the quote currency of the pair you are trading (i.e. EUR in the pair XBT/EUR).
