BitAsset holders benefit from forced settlement only if the market price goes below the feed price, and the feed price does not drop in next 24 hours. This is imposes a natural limit on volume.

generally speaking, when the price goes to a very low level, the holders can benefit, because at this moment force settlement is a way to  buy big volume at very low price, considering the possibility of price manipulation, this is the very moment that the shorters need more protection.

If the problem is actually not a settlement volume, but possibility of price manipulation, why not to address this problem directly?
