Perpetual swaps settlement price

  • System takes the Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) of last 10 minutes of the traded price for that contract.( Denominated currency);
  • Settlement price=sum (Volume per transaction(conts))/sum (Volume per transaction(conts)/Price per transaction)

The following changes may take place during settlement:
1. The UPL and fundings that needs to be settled will be calculated from the settlement price, standard settlement price and the number of existing positions, which will be integrated into the RPL. And the RPL and fundings of each contract will be transferred into the account balance after clawback.
2. After the settlement, the position price of the contract will become the settlement price. Subsequent UPL will be calculated based on the new settlement price.
