2. Calculation Comparison
① Calculation of Coin-Margined Standard Futuress
PnL = Transaction Direction * Trade Size * Opening Price * (1/ Opening Price - 1/ Closing Price)
Liquidation Price in Isolated Margin Mode = Transaction Direction * Trade Size * Opening Price / (0.9 * Margin + Transaction Direction * Trade Size - Trading Fee - Funding Fee)
② Calculation of USDT-Margined Standard Futures
PnL = Transaction Direction * Trade Size * (Closing Price - Opening Price) / Opening Price
Liquidation Price in Isolated Margin Mode = Opening Price + Opening Price * (Funding Fee + Trading Fee - 0.9 * Margin) / (Transaction Direction * Trade Size)
The rest of the calculations that do not involve PnL and Liquidation are the same.
