Thanks, the documentation is really helpful but confusing.

Here is a good explanation of what do the numbers on screenshot mean, how they are calculated and when do they trigger a margin call

http://docs.bitshares.eu/bitshares/user/dex-short.html

with examples

http://docs.bitshares.eu/bitshares/user/dex-margin-mechanics.html

Unfortunately, there is some confusion in terms between DEX and documentation. "Call price" on the screenshot corresponds to "short squeeze protection price" in the docs. "Your call price" on the screenshot is a "call price" in the docs. It would be good if workers bring this to order.

the call price is the price at which your position will be called .. the higher the collateral ratio the farer away the call price will be
I recommend you look into the whitepaper on docs.bitshares.eu/papers

Hi,

could you please explain me how the call price on bit assets is calculated?



  • How is "Margin Call Price" calculated? If I understand it correctly, this is when least-collaterized account will be called. According to DEX it was 31.4 but according to cryptofresh it was 32.4
  • How is "Your Call Price" calculated? I read the docs referenced from the form but still don't get it.
