Token Symbol: ALGO5S
ALGO5S is a leveraged token that goes short on ALGO with 5x leverage, which means that for every decrease in the price of ALGO in the market, the leveraged ALGO token seeks a 5x increase in its price. ALGO5S is required to maintain its target leverage and does so through dynamic rebalancing to gain a net value increase by 5% when the price of ALGO falls 1%.
Due to such rebalancing and investment costs, ALGO5S may suffer a net value loss when the market fluctuates. Please note, AscendEX’s leveraged tokens are not suitable for long-term investment. Investors must be cautious while investing in leveraged tokens and manage their investment risks in a timely manner.
Leveraged tokens differ from regular tokens for spot trading in that there is higher risk and volatility, which could bring about great returns or losses in a single day. Please learn more about leveraged tokens in our help center before making an investment.
