Adjustments to Risk Limits, Ticker Sizes, and Order Quantities

Author: Alan W.

Dear users,

On January 19, 2023, Phemex will adjust contract risk limits, ticker sizes, and order quantities for certain perpetual contracts. Risk limits are imposed to help clients manage their risks because the larger a position is, the smaller the leverage allowed. As our user base grows more advanced, we will continue to tweak risk limits & leverage to allow greater flexibility and better user experience. Please find our newly adjusted risk limits and ticker sizes below:
