There are a few ways your Margin Funding can be closed:
- The duration you specified for your funding expires and your funding is returned to you by the system,
- The funding taker (borrower) manually closes a trade position and returns your funds,
- The trade the funding taker is in becomes liquidated and your funds are returned by the system, or
- The funding taker simply decides to return your funding without using it.*
If a borrower takes your margin funding offer, opens and closes a trade position, and subsequently returns your funds all within 1 hour, margin funding interest will be charged to the borrower for that first full hour.
*In an effort to dissuade manipulative funding behavior and ensure fair platform use for all, Bitfinex will charge one full day’s interest to the borrower on any funding that is borrowed and subsequently returned without being used in a financed position.
