Inverse 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:
