    Q : Let's continue Tutorials for Intermediate Contract Trading.


    A : Yes, today's topic is how to use Conditional Order & how to use Mixed Collatera.


    Q : : Please show me how to use Conditional Order.


    A : Operations for Conditional Orders on the web:


    ( One-Side and Two-Side Positions are the same )


    ( All following examples are based on the BTC_USDT trading under the USDT settlement contract. The following screenshot is a test net contract. )




    Note:


    1)Select from Mark Price/Last Price at the trigger type


    2)Input the trigger price


    3)Select Limit Price/Market Price for the order type, and input the order price.


    4)Input the order number.


    5)Click 'buy long/sell short'

    Q : Thank you . How about operations for the app ?


    A :



    Note:


    1)Select from Mark Price/Last Price at the trigger type


    2)Input the trigger price


    3)Select Limit Price/Market Price for the order type, and input the order price


    4)Input the order number


    5)Click 'buy long/sell short'


    If the orders are not immediately or all settled after placing, they can be viewed under the 'current orders' list. If needed, you can also cancel the order.


    A conditional order is a strategic order, which the order will be placed according to the price, amount, and directions preset by the user when the market price reaches the trigger price.


    Once triggered, the system will check the effectiveness of the reserve order, create one and add it to the order list.


    You can set up for position opening and liquidation after placing a conditional order.


    (If the preset trigger price is higher than the last price/mark price, it refers to >=, and vice versa.)


    A : That's all. How to use Conditional Order now let's go on to How to Use Mixed Collateral


    Q : Please show me How to Use Mixed Collateral.


    A : In order to provide contract users with a more flexible and convenient trading experience, Gate.io offers USDT Perpetual contract which allows mixed collateral loans.


    Through mixed collateral, users can collateralize the BTC and ETH in their spot accounts and borrow a maximum of 100,000 USDT for contract trading with zero interest. Users do not need to sell their digital assets or transfer funds to the contract account. Margin will be automatically deducted from the spot account. Mixed collateral loans cannot be withdrawn. As of now, this feature remains only web-based but is going to be updated on app soon. Currently, only BTC and ETH are available as collateral. Gate.io is working to increase the number of collateral currencies.


    The mixed collateralized loan is the value conversion of the collateral to resist the risk of contract liquidation. Since no actual borrowing occurs, there is no handling fee. However, when the loan-to-value ratio exceeds the threshold, no matter other assets are sufficient in the contract, there will be a forced liquidation on the collateralized assets, which is irrelevant to the amount of trading margin in the contract account. Please make sure that there is sufficient collateral for contract margin loans. When the LTV ratio rises, please promptly increase the amount of collateral currency.


    Loan-to-value Ratio (LTV Ratio) is the ratio of a borrowed loan to the value of its collateral. A lower loan-to-value ratio indicates lower risks of liquidation.


    A :Let me show you how to borrow funds using mixed collateral:( U settled perpetual contracts as an example)


    1.Go to "Trade"-"Perpetual"-"U settled".


    2.Find "Mixed Collateral" under "Asset" and click on "Borrow Manage".


    3.Enter the desired amount of USDT and select the collateral currency(BTC or ETH) and LTV ratio. Enter the collateral amount and click on "Confirm Loan".


    4.When repaying the loan, go to "Wallet" and find "Contract Account". Check the loan amount and find out how to repay under "Perpetual"-"Collateral".



    Q : Anything users need to be aware of ?


    A : Yes please note: Margin will be automatically deducted from the spot account. Mixed collateralized loans cannot be withdrawn.


    Q : let's go to the question session.
