Maintenance Margin is the minimum amount of margin required to keep a position open. For any open position, when the Remaining Margin (Initial Margin + Unrealised loss) falls below the Maintenance Margin, liquidation process is triggered.
Margin is the collateral that you need to post when entering into a leveraged derivatives contract. Initial Margin is the amount required to enter into a new position. Initial Margin is dependent on the leverage offered in the derivatives contract.
All Futures contracts on Delta Exchange have built-in leverage. While the allowed leverage can vary from contact to contract, currently, the maximum leverage across all contracts is currently 100x.
Auto deleveraging (ADL) is triggered when the liquidation engine is unable to close a position in liquidation in the market without breaching the bankruptcy price of the position. In ADL, the position is closed against traders on the opposite side according to leverage and profit priority.
To avoid getting liquidated, please ensure that the Remaining Margin (Initial Margin + Unrealised Loss) is always greater than the Maintenance Margin.
A position goes into liquidation when the margin assigned to it falls below maintenance margin. In such a situation, the liquidation engine attempts to close the position in the market, while ensuring that the exit price does not breach the bankruptcy price ( the price at which the assigned margin becomes zero). If the liquidation engine is unable to close the position, auto deleveraging is triggered.
