How can the Trading Fee Balance be used?

Trading Fee Balance can be used to cover trade fees on Spot Trading. When an order is executed, the corresponding commission amount is charged from the Trading Fee Balance in the USDT equivalent.

In case the amount on the Trading Fee Balance is not enough to fully cover the trade fees the maximum possible amount will be charged from the Trading Fee Balance, and the rest of the amount will be covered with the funds from the account balance.

Example: A user placed an order with a commission of 10 USD and the Trading Fee Balance is 8 USDT. The current USDT-USD exchange rate is 1.0002. As a result, 8 USDT will be charged from the Trading Fee Balance and the amount of 10 - 8*1.0002 (which is about 2 USD) will be charged from the trading account balance
