How do I enable perpetual trading for my account?

Important: Perpetual futures trading is high risk and only available to eligible professional investors in select locations and subject to regulatory approval. Perpetual futures are not available in Hong Kong or to Hong Kong users.

Perpetuals trading is subject to regulatory requirements and may not be available in your jurisdiction.  To participate in perpetuals trading, you must first enable margin trading on each trading account that you wish to trade perpetuals from. Once margin trading is enabled on a trading account, perpetuals trading capabilities will also be automatically enabled where allowed.

Auto-borrow-to-settle

Enabling Bullish perpetuals trading will also enable auto-borrow for settlement. With this feature your account does not need to have a balance of the settlement currency for that particular perpetual market in order to trade it. If at the end of the settlement period the trading account has an insufficient balance, the account will automatically borrow what is necessary to fulfill the account’s payment obligation. Conversely if there is an excess balance, the account will automatically use that balance to minimize the interest charges by repaying loans.
