Multi-Collateral Futures Margin Schedule & Maximum Leverage
At Kraken Futures we use Initial Margin (IM) and Maintenance Margin (MM) to manage the credit risk arising from open positions.
The larger a trader's position, the more liquidity is required to unwind that position in the event of an adverse price move.
Additionally, the more volatile a currency pair, the higher the margin that is required to withstand typical price moves. IM and MM are therefore a function of both, contract type and of position size, as shown in the following tables:

See Multi-Collateral Contract Specifications for Margin Categories and Maximum Position Sizes in Base units.
Note: Margin percentages in multi-collateral futures are based on the value of the collateral currency at entry price. Margin requirements and maximum position size are calculated for each instrument individually per contract’s collateral.
Your IM requirement for the position in the Class B will be 2%.
Kraken Futures reserve the right to update the margin schedule at any time without warning. Note that if there is not sufficient margin in a trader’s wallet to meet updated requirements, position(s) can be liquidated.
