How does a closing a profitable trade work?

There is one key difference between closing out a profitable trade vs closing out a losing trade.
When you make a loss, you get your margin returned to you immediately (less losses and holding fees and loyalty fees).
When you make a profit, you get your margin returned to you immediately (less holding fees and loyalty fees). You then have to wait until the end of the 8 hour trading session to receive your profit.
