Facts About Binance Futures

Binance Futures are featured in a separate section of the exchange. To access futures trading, you need to complete the KYC process and open a special futures account. Also, consider the specifics of futures trading. Let's discuss the main ones.

Futures Delivery Date

Binance trades perpetual and delivery futures. Perpetual futures are "eternal" contracts. Traders can hold a position in a perpetual future for as long as they want. Delivery futures are contracts with a delivery date. On the delivery date, the contract "expires," and the holder-trader receives the asset: cryptocurrency. Binance trades quarterly term futures. They "live" for three months until the delivery date.

Binance Futures Leverage

Leverage is a financial "lever" that helps to significantly increase the volume of the transaction. Accordingly, the potential profit and loss are increased. Leverage is provided by Binance. A 10x leverage means that the trader puts 1/10 of the transaction volume and the rest of the funds come from Binance. If the leverage is 5x, Binance multiplies the trader's "contribution" five times, and so on. After closing the position, the funds used as leverage are returned to the exchange. The trader keeps the result of the transaction (profit or loss) from the total volume of the transaction.

Binance Futures Fees

The trader pays the exchange a fee for each trading operation with futures. The futures market has its own tariff grid, different from the Spot market. Commissions also differ depending on the type of futures (USDS-M or COIN-M) being traded. With leverage, the trader pays the same percentage commission as without leverage. But in "numbers," the commission increases – proportional to the size of the position, increased with the help of leverage. For example, if a trader invested $100 of their own with 5x leverage, the position size is $500. The trader pays the commission not on their $100, but on the entire position amount.

Binance Futures Funding

Funding is the mechanism that keeps the price of a perpetual future close to the Spot price of the underlying asset. When the future is more expensive than the asset, Binance "motivates" selling, so funding is accrued to those who short the contract and deducted from those who have a long position opened. When the future is cheaper than the asset, funding is deducted from the accounts of short-sellers and transferred to long traders. The size of the funding is calculated using a complex formula, taking into account the funding rate. The rate can be viewed on the perpetual future's page.

A liquidation occurs when the exchange forcibly closes a trader's position due to a lack of margin. For example, a trader enters a position with $100 and uses 20x leverage. The total position is $2,000. If the future depreciates by 5%, the position decreases to $1,900. Thus, the trader's “burns” $100. According to the contract terms, the trader must maintain a margin of $100. However, since the margin is depleted, the trader's "obligations" are not met. The exchange can automatically close the position to prevent losses and as a result, the trader can lose the $100 investment.

How to Scalp USDT Binance Futures

USDT futures are contracts denominated in the USDT stablecoin. These are perpetual and quarterly contracts. Transactions with such futures are settled in USDT. To engage with Binance USDT futures, you need to transfer USDT to the futures account.
To trade USDT futures, go to the main menu of Binance, open the "Futures" section, and click "USDS-M Futures".

Binance trades both perpetual and quarterly COIN-M futures.

How to Scalp Binance Futures – Conclusion

Trading futures can be profitable if approached wisely. The key to a positive outcome is strategy.
If scalping appeals to you, then trading through the Binance interface will not be suitable. The exchange’s interface is burdened with extra functions needed by a "one-time" cryptocurrency buyer, but not by a scalper who works daily. Full-fledged scalping is only possible through a dedicated trading terminal like CScalp, where you will find the order book, trade tape, and clusters.
