Afternoon all,

To be clear - we don't weight cryptocurrency prices, based on either client trades or positions. We don't "stop hunt" client positions.

It is not in our interest to do so. Such behavior would -  among other things - be harmful to our reputation, unfair, and would lead to intervention by the relevant regulator.

We price our crypto pairs by taking price feeds from exchanges, and combining them into a blended price.



Any given combination of feeds will ultimate produce a "best price" which we would use as our mid. This price is created by taking an average bid and offer price from our exchange price feeds, and wrapping a fixed spread around the new mid.

We weight these feeds in a normal distribution to reduce the impact of a spike in any single price feed. (Very rough chart from when this was in testing to give you a visual aid).


This distribution means that the feeds closest to the  mean will have the largest price impact, preventing the majority of price spikes that could otherwise be caused by individual feeds.

Where there is a price spike we will determine whether it is valid reflection of the underlying market- and reverse trades if not.

    • BRITISH POUND TALKING POINTS: GBP/USD was in a difficult spot earlier in September and the problem has continued to devolve. It’s a negative feedback type situation around the UK and the British Pound with a collapsing currency leading to surging bond yields which led to a BoE intervention effort that’s led to more currency collapse. It’s a painful feedback loop that hasn’t yet stopped. Is there hope on the horizon? And is this a problem that will be relegated to the UK, as it has similar hues to problems being seen in Europe and the United States. The current backdrop is messy as bonds and FX are screaming panic and meanwhile, US equities look relatively calm. I discussed this at-length in yesterday’s webinar. The British Pound collapsed last week, or so we thought, only to open our platforms this week to see what a collapse in a major currency actually looked like. GBP/USD has set a fresh all-time-low and perhaps more disturbingly, in the days since, price hasn’t really rebounded much. Sellers are still hitting the pair and now there’s other dislocations that are taking place.   The UK is faced with a similar problem as Europe and the US with extreme inflation. All three Central Banks were rather calm as inflation built through much of last year but this year, as inflation continued to run-higher even after initial tightening efforts, worry started to show given that central bank efforts were not only unsuccessful but also appearing to bring on even more problems.
