How much capital do I need to make an income from trading on Coincabin?

Your capital requirements are highly dependent on your own personal needs, risk aversity and trading experience. We recommend that you start out with a small amount of capital, and focus on percentage gains at first. Once you have nailed down your strategy, you can always add more capital.

How much leverage should I use?

Leveraged trading can be highly risky in markets that are as volatile as crypto. We always recommend that you start out with a very conservative amount of leverage. Once you know the approximate daily return, daily drawdown and maximum exposure of your trading strategy, you can slowly increase your leverage. The Kelly Criterion can sometimes prove useful in determining the optimal amount of leverage to use.

How is my profit calculated?

For long positions, the profit/loss (P/L) is calculated as follows:

P/L (Long) = (Exit Price - Entry Price) * Position Size

For short positions, the profit/loss (P/L) is calculated as follows:

P/L (Short) = (Entry Price - Exit Price) * Position Size

How is my Entry Price calculated?

The Entry Price of your position is calculated by taking the volume weighted average fill price (VWAP fill price) of the orders that increased the size of your position. The formula is as follows:

Entry Price = Position Size / ((Qty_1/Price_1)+(Qty_2/Price_2)...+(Qty_n/Price_n))

where Qty_n is the quantity of your n'th order and Price_n is the price of your n'th order.

If you are long, only buy orders contribute to your Average Entry Price. Sell orders can be ignored in this case.

If you are short, only sell orders contribute to your Average Entry Price. Buy orders can be ignored in this case.

Example:

You place an order to go long $20,000 worth of BTC at a price of 10,000. Your order gets filled, and a new long position is opened.

The Average Entry Price of this position is now:

(Position Size / (Qty_1/Price_1)) = (20,000/(20,000/10,000)) = 10,000.

You then place another order to go long $40,000 at a price of 12,000. The Average Entry Price is now:

(Position Size / (Qty_1/Price_1)+(Qty_2/Price_2)) = (60,000/(20,000/10,000)+(40,000/12,000)) = 11,250.

Do the futures contracts on Coincabin expire?

The futures contracts available on Coincabin are all perpetual. They never expire, and there is no settlement. You can keep your position for as long as you want. A mechanism called Funding keeps the price of the contract aligned to the spot price of the underlying asset.

What is funding?

Funding is an hourly exchange of money between longs and shorts. The purpose of this exchange is to keep the price of the contract aligned with the spot price of the underlying. The amount exchanged is determined by the Funding Rate. If the Funding Rate is positive, the contract is trading at a premium to spot, and longs pay shorts. If the Funding Rate is negative, the contract is trading at a discount to spot, and shorts pay longs.

What is the Funding Rate?

The Funding Rate determines the amount to be exchanged between longs and shorts during each funding period. If the Funding Rate is 0.1% at the end of a funding period, longs pay 0.1% of their position size to shorts. If the Funding Rate is -0.1%, shorts pay 0.1% of their position size to longs.

How does funding affect my trading?

Funding slightly changes the payoff matrix of market participants in the futures market. If the Funding Rate is significantly positive for a sustained amount of time (as seen during the peak of bull runs), shorts may end up being profitable in spite of the price of Bitcoin going up. The trading P&L on long positions would need to appreciate by an amount equal to the total amount of funding paid in order for longs to break even in this scenario. A funding rate that is far away from zero opens up unique arbitrage opportunities, such as Spot Futures Arbitrage and Cross Exchange Funding Arbitrage.

What is the Mark Price?

The Mark Price is a manipulation-resistant price that Coincabin uses in order to minimize the impact of market manipulation and prevent unnecessary liquidations.

What is the Index Price?

The Index Price is an average of a collection of prices from the top 10 spot exchanges:

  • Coinbase Pro
  • Kraken
  • Bitstamp
  • Bittrex
  • Poloniex
  • Gemini
  • Binance
  • Kucoin
  • Bitfinex
  • Itbit

What measures can I use to secure my account?

Coincabin accounts can be secured with Two Factor Authentication (2FA), withdrawal limits, IP pinning and device whitelisting. For the best security, we recommend that you enable TOTP-based Two Factor Authentication, add a withdrawal limit and only whitelist your own trusted devices.

You should also ensure that the access to your email address is properly locked down with a strong password and Two Factor Authentication.

Are there any fees charged on liquidations?

Coincabin does not charge any fees on liquidations. If your position is liquidated, it will be closed out incrementally, until your Maintenance Margin satisfies the Minimum Maintenance Margin requirements for the contract you are trading. In the vast majority of liquidations, only 10% of your position size will need to be closed out. Once this is done, your position exits liquidation. Note: Incremental liquidation is not available for positions that are below 0.1 BTC in size. Positions that are below 0.1 BTC in size are liquidated in full, at their bankrupcty price.

Can I use Coincabin to automate my trading?

Yes. Coincabin offers a fully-fledged REST and websocket API. Through these API's, you can do almost everything that you could otherwise do through the Coincabin website.

The futures contracts on Coincabin are USD-margined but I can't deposit USD. How does that work?

Coincabin automatically converts stablecoin deposits (USDC, USDT, BUSD, DAI) into USD at time of deposit. At time of withdrawal, the USD is converted back to stablecoin.

This frees the user from any stablecoin-related risks while he is trading on Coincabin.
