You hold 45.56 Waves with 14.1485 USDN of accumulated profit, about 2 USDN due to be payed as funding and your margin is 528.72 USDN. Assumingly, it's going to be a 100 USDN increase:

Increased position

First off, the value that have stayed unchanged after the increase is the P&L: the position increase has had absolutely no impact on it yet. Still, there can be one as the asset price changes up or down. Be aware of net funding too.
