I am with CM on this one. Losses are in the $100,000+ range. There needs to be significant improvements before I would vote for a second OMO.

Of the two options you described, Plan A is far more acceptable than Plan B.

the fund lost so much because the big bear comes and the debt position was margin called.
in Plan A, there will be no borrowing and margin call will be avoided.

How will this second OMO operation succeed where the last one failed? How do you plan on improving this time around?

I am considering to restart the OMO fund operation.

I believe that the market fee income should be used in supporting the smartcoin ecosystem. we learned lessons in the past 10 months, so I think we need to update some essential setting of the fund.

first, it will not get BTS through worker proposal, it will only get the market fee of smartcoins for operation.

here are 2 policies for the operation of the updated OMO fund.

Plan A:
1.BTS buying orders can be placed only when there is margin called orders stayed.
2.BTS selling orders can be placed only when the smartcoin has at least 0.5% discount.
3.smartcoin borrowing is not allowed.

Plan B:
1.BTS buying orders can be placed only when there is margin called orders stayed.
2.BTS selling orders can be placed only when the smartcoin has at least 0.5% discount.
3.smartcoin borrowing is allowed, but the margin call price of the debt position should always be lower than the global settlement price, anytime the margin called price is above global settlement price, all the available liquidity should be used to reduce the margin called price.

Plan A is conservative, it just buy and sell BTS, do not borrow.
Plan B is a little audacious.

maybe we can begin with Plan A, Plan B is for subsequent discussion.

the open market operation fund relevant threads are here:

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=26107.0
https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=26072.0

below is a simple table that shows the balance change of the 2 OMO accounts.







in the past 10 months, committee-cnytrader lost 6130332 bitCNY and 26206002 BTS.

committee-usdoperator lost 177300 bitUSD and 10258313 BTS.

from 2018/3/20 to 2018/8/8, committee-cnytrader bought 10M-25M BTS, at price 0.79 - 2.2 bitCNY.

from 2018/8/14 to 2019/1/19, committee-cnytrader selled 10M-20M BTS in margin call, at price 0.61 - 0.24 bitCNY.

from 2018/3/29 to 2018/10/30, committee-usdoperator bought about 15M BTS, at price 0.095 - 0.36 bitUSD.

from 2018/10/19 to 2019/10/21, committee-usdoperator selled about 12M BTS in margin call at price 0.0615 to 0.0509 bitUSD

at 2018/10/25 bitUSD was global settled, 3M BTS from committee-usdoperator was global settled at 0.0511bitUSD.

the data is rough as now it is not convenient to process the transaction data, hope https://bitsharescan.com can add the data export feature.
