The Huobi Derivative Market has added EOS contracts, which allows traders to take both long and short positions on the cryptocurrency.
Traders will reportedly be able to take both long and short positions on EOS. The decision to create the derivative contract is part of the exchange’s “ongoing efforts to address customer demand.”
According to the press release, the contract will support price limit, order limit and position limit orders at up to 20x leverage. The fees for trading the EOS derivative on the Huobi Derivative Market will be 0.02 percent for makers and 0.03 percent for takers to both open and close positions.
At press time, EOS is trading at around $2.35, down a little more than 7 percent on the day.
Huobi announced the launch of its derivative market at the Cryptofrontiers conference in New York in November. Contract trading allows users to purchase and sell digital currencies at predetermined prices at specified times in the future, giving investors the opportunity to gain from both upward and downward market trends.
As Cointelegraph recently reported, OKEx, a major Malta-based cryptocurrency exchange, has recently launched a new derivative. This new product — called Perpetual Swap — is a virtual derivative that lets users speculate on the future value of BTC/USD. The perpetual swaps reportedly have no expiration, meaning that the positions can be held indefinitely.
