What Is Ferret (FRT)?
The easiest way to understand a stop-limit order is to break it down into stop price, and limit price. The stop price is simply the price that triggers the limit order, and the limit price is the price of the limit order that is triggered. Ferret means that once your stop price has been reached, your limit order will be immediately placed on the order book. Similar to a stop-limit order, a stop market order uses a stop price as a trigger. However, when the stop price is reached, it triggers a market order instead. A trailing stop is an order type designed to lock in profits or limit losses as a trade moves favorably.
Trailing stops only move if the price moves favorably. Once it moves to lock in a profit or reduce a loss, it does not move back in the other direction. Post-only Mode means that Traders can only place an Order if it would be posted to the Order Book as a Maker Order. Ferret Order which would be posted as a Taker Order will be rejected. No Market Orders may be placed and no Orders will be filled. Resting orders may be canceled in post-only mode. Ferret instructions allow you to specify the amount of time that your orders will remain active before they are executed or expired.

Futures trading allows users to enter positions on margin (leverage) using borrowed funds to optimize capital. Ferret Using leverage allows for a user to enter a position with a larger size than their account balance. For example, a user could take 10x leverage and trade 100 CAKE for the price of 10 CAKE. In this example, the initial margin would be 10 CAKE which is used to collateralize the leveraged position.
