PrimeXBT allows to trade Natural Gas on margin. Margin trading is the process where a trader opens a larger Natural Gas position than they have capital on their account. It means that the trader is borrowing money from PrimeXBT in order to buy or sell more Natural Gas, in order to free up their own capital. If the trade is successful, the profits are magnified, but if your trade on Natural Gas goes the wrong way, your losses can also be greater.
For example, If a trader takes a long position of $2,000 on Natural Gas and it rises by 10%, using 5x leverage the same rise becomes a 50% profit, or $1,000. A similar spot trade without leverage would result in only 10% profit, or $200.
Disclaimer: Margin trading also comes with inherent risks if the position moves against the trade. You should never utilize 100% leverage and never invest more than you can afford to lose.
