Change to Quote Value Ratio Trading Rule

October 23, 1:55 AM

Following the recent successful launch and analysis of the Quote Value Ratio (QVR) Trading Rule, we have increased the number of Free Quotes (Qfree) allowed to 2000, effective immediately. Qfree represents the number of quotes that users can place each hour without being subject to the rule. This change will allow users to better manage their orders which sit further away from the top of the book, providing additional liquidity to the exchange and its users.

The QVR rule helps to increase overall quoting efficiency on the platform through limiting the number of individual quotes and amount of capacity a trader can utilise if providing little or no trading value for other BitMEX users. At this time, the rule applies to XBTUSD quotes only.

We will continue to monitor activity on the exchange and review these thresholds on an ongoing basis. See our Trading Rules page for the latest information on thresholds. 

If you have any further queries, please contact Support.

Change to State Updates on Instrument

October 22, 9:59 AM

Starting 29 October 2020 at 08:00 UTC updates to the Websocket API Instrument feed will no longer publish a state field value of Closed for all open symbols at the start of each hour. Instead the state will remain Open as positions are rolled and profits are realised. 

Changes to other fields of the Instrument feed, such as opening and closing timestamps, are unchanged. Changes to the state field of futures during settlement will also be unaffected by this update.

This change is now live in the Testnet environment.

If you have any further questions, please contact Support.
