Perpetuals Trading Series: How does Marking work on EQONEX?

Perpetuals Trading Series: How does Marking work on EQONEX?

January 19, 2021

On EQONEX, we differentiate between the Market Price and the Mark Price of the perpetual. The Market Price is the last traded price of the product on EQONEX. The Market Price may deviate (significantly) from the rest of the market for example in case of large orders or an illiquid order book. The Mark Price gives a fairer value for the contract by taking a 3-second TWAP of the Market Price. A TWAP is the average of the open, high, low and close price for a specific period. In the case of the Mark Price these periods are three 1-second intervals. As the Mark Price is used for P&L calculation and to determine whether the position needs to be liquidated, using a TWAP to smooth out temporary spikes in prices should prevent unnecessary liquidations.
