I started this script as a joke for someone... finally appears it could be used for educational content
Let's talk about leverage and margin call
A margin call is the broker's demand that an investor deposit additional money or securities so that the account is brought up to the minimum value, known as the maintenance margin.
This is the same as my previous BITFINEX Longs & Shorts script but with an update by @slylandro to work with other pairs on BFX
Green area = Longs
Red area = Shorts
Lighter area = Longs - Shorts (good for spotting sentiment)
This is the popular Bitfinex margin Longs/Shorts overlay script made compatible with other exchanges. So you can for example use it with BitMEXT XBTUSD and it will still plot Bitfinex BTCUSD.
It always plots data for the same currency pair, so for ETHUSD of any exchange, it will always plot Bitfinex ETHUSD margin data.
This indicators shows the changes in margin data for Bitfinex from previous bar. This means if you're looking at the 1 hour chart, it will show changes since the previous hour. 1 day chart = changes since the previous day.
Useful for seeing if a price move was due to stop runs, if a trade has become too crowded, or whatever wacky theories you have for margin...
This is a rewrite of the original:
I really like the above script (Thank you Pastafarian!) but it was annoying that
it always took so long to load, so I made some edits so it would run faster.
Basically I replaced all the custom code (the sum loop and the calculations)
Almost identical to the one I published before, but this one includes short orders as well.
I didn't spend much time backtesting, so there may be a different set of parameters that gives better results. Please let me know if you find something!
This TMA study is called rollercoaster for the rounded ways it follows the moving average. Tried pinpointing entry/exit points as well as I could. Included alertconditions as well as syntax at the bottom for use with Autoview in a margin or spot trading environment. There is also the Strategy side chart use :)
As usual, free to use, change it to suit your needs,...
Total BTCUSDLONGS minus the BTCUSDSHORTS in order to give you the total outstanding BTC margin debt.
ie: If there are 50,000 BTC longs, and 40,000 BTC shorts, then 50,000 has been bought, and 40,000 sold, leaving us with 10,000 BTC net remaining to be sold to give us an overall neutral margin position.
That isn't to say that the net margin position must move...
