1. What is DueDEX?
DueDEX, registered in Belize, is a fair and professional crypto derivatives trading platform. The name “DueDEX” is a combination of the words “Due”, “Derivatives” and “Exchange”. The word “Due” represents anything that is appropriate, adequate, regular and lawful. Derivatives and exchange refer to the provision of services. By highlighting the word “Due”, DueDEX expresses the intent to truly bring fairness and transparency to the exchange of digital assets.
DueDEX is currently enabling users to trade with BTCUSD & BTCUSDT perpetual swap contracts with up to 100x leverage. A perpetual swap is an innovative derivative product. It trades like spot, tracking the underlying Index Price closely. It is also very similar to traditional futures, but it doesn’t have an expiry date, so there is no settlement. 24/7 trading allows traders to open a position or close a position whenever they like to.

- Leverage: The leverage amount you choose is to determine the level of margin you would put for this order, and the level of risks you wish to undertake.

- Risk Limit: Risk limit here is a risk management measure used to prevent large liquidation incidents. DueDEX applies Risk Limits on all trading accounts to minimize the occurrence of large liquidations on margined contracts. Your current risk limit usage will be indicated. If you place an order that would bring your usage above your risk limit, you will need to click the Edit button on the right, to increase your risk limit, and then you can submit your order. Please note that, with the change of Risk Limit, the level of initial margin and maintenance margin will change accordingly, so does the margin required to place the order.
- Price: You can set the price as you want. The order will be executed when the market price reaches the price you set.
- Quantity: The quantity field refers to the quantity of contracts you wish to transact in and is denominated in USD. (1 contract = 1 USD)

Note: When you set your leverage, please be aware of the change of margin mode:

- Isolated Margin Mode: Margin assigned to a position is restricted to a certain amount. If the margin falls below the Maintenance Margin level, the position is liquidated.
A conditional order will enter into the order book only when the market reaches the pre-set Trigger Price based on the three Trigger Price Types: Last Traded Price, Index Price, or Mark Price.
This feature is frequently used to limit losses and take profit to close a position without manually waiting for the market before placing the order, nor disclose the traders’ trading intention. Set the preferred Leverage, Trigger Price (as your Stop Loss/Take Profit) using Market or Limit then Quantity. Finally, click on ‘Buy/Long’ or ‘Sell/Short’ and check your entries under ‘Positions’ > ‘Conditional’ tab.
On DueDEX, Reduce-Only option is selected by default, therefore, if a trader would like to use this feature to enter the market at the desired entry point automatically, he/she should untick the Reduce-Only option.
DueDEX offers two types of Conditional Orders:
- Conditional Market Order: When the market reaches the Trigger Price (Last/Index/Mark), an order will be placed on its best available price.
- Conditional Limit Order: When the market reached the Trigger Price (Last/Index/Mark), an order will be placed and enters into the order book.
For Conditional Market Order, you will need to fill in the Triggered Price and quatity first. After the triggered price, the order will be placed and filled at the best price available.
For Conditional Limit Order, you will need to fill in the Triggered Price, Order Price and quatity. The order will be placed in the order book after the triggered price and will be filled at the Order Price. It is worth mentioning that the final order price might be slightly from the set Order Price due to market depth or huge market change.
DueDEX has launched the first-of-the kind “DueDEX Risk Manager”, an automated risk management solution for traders to manage risk % on account equity.
The factors include:
- Take Profit %
- Stop Loss %
- Quantity of order based on risk level
How to use Risk Manager:
1. Select Buy/Sell and Leverage
First go to the Risk Manager tab, similar to other placing order processes, select Buy or Sell and the leverage as the first step. NOTE: 50 & 100x leverage will not work with the Risk Manager. Please select a lower leverage.
2. Select the Order Type
In DueDEX Risk Manager, “Limit Order” and “Market Order” are both offered. If “Market Order” is selected, the order will be placed at the latest “Market Price”. If “Limit Order” is selected, you need to set a price where the order will execute. When “Limit Orders” execute, “Stop order” and “Take profit” are immediately entered into the order book. When “Market Orders” are used, the “Stop order” and “Take Profit” are immediately entered onto the books.
3. Take Profit and Stop Loss
In this step, based on users' “Take Profit” and “Stop Loss” preference, the upper and lower close price of the order are set. Users can either use the Profit Rate or Loss Rate (Profit/Total Balance or Loss/Total Balance) option or set the price directly. Users can either slide the bar or directly fill in the percentage to change it.
4. Set the quantity of the order
DueDEX offers this function to help users understand the risk per trade. DueDEX automatically calculates the quantity of the order according to the Risk/Equity ratio. This is easily presented with the (%) and ($) value. Similarly, the percentage can be set either by the slider bar or fill in the number directly. The default risk is set to 0.25%.
5. Place Order
When orders are set, users can set the “Time in Force” and “Trigger Type” of their order, review the Risk (%) and Profit(%). Now click “Place Order” to execute!
Please note: DueDEX Risk Manager can only be used when there is no current position in your account. If the Place Order button is unclickable, please check your current positions and close all of them before using the DueDEX Risk Manager.
DueDEX Risk Manager is a tool used to control risk to your trade profile. It does not protect from slippage and adverse market conditions.
6. Closing Your Position
When you want to close your positions to either withdraw the profit you made or to limit your losses, there are a few ways to go about this. If you went long, you will need to sell to close your position while if you went short you will need to buy long.
Check your position details at the bottom of the trading page, you will find a gray button named “Market” and a red button named “Close”. If you press the gray “Market” button, it will exit your positions at whatever the market price is right now. If you press the red “Close” button, you will exit your position once the price gets to the amount you’ve entered.
Besides closing your entire positions at the Position Details section, you can also close the positions by opening opposite positions with same quantity. Or you can choose to partially close your positions. E.g., if you hold 1000 BTCUSD short positions, you can place a buy order with 100 BTCUSD to partially close your short positions.
