Taking BTC/USDT as an example:
If the current BTC price is 40,000 USDT and it is expected to drop, you can choose to go short by borrowing BTC. Sell your BTC to USDT at a high price and wait for the price to drop to buy in BTC.
Proceed with Repayment to return the borrowed tokens and interest.
After deducting the principal and interest fee, the balance would be your profit from the trade.

In the Auto mode, users do not need to manually borrow and repay the assets. Our system will determine whether to borrow assets based on the funds in users’ Margin wallet.
If the assets needed are more than the available funds, our system will automatically borrow the tokens in the required amount, calculate the interest fee and place the order. Once users withdraw the order when it’s filled or partially filled, our system will automatically return the borrowed token to reduce users’ interest fee caused by idle loans.
