Why is slippage an AMM model nightmare? 😱

Slippage indicates the difference between the price quoted for the transaction and the price at which it is executed. What makes slippage worse is price volatility and larger trades.

Unlike the traditional order book form, AMM uses the liquidity-pool model to create a liquid market. The asset price in the asset pool is determined by a function. It means that the price of the trading pair is directly affected by the changes in the reserve of both of the pair’s assets in the pool. Every transaction causes a change in the reserve, making the actual transaction execution price of the asset change and resulting in a slippage.

Therefore, the larger the transaction volume and the deeper the depletion of the liquidity reserve of the capital pool, the higher the slippage.

RiskSwap is equipped with an Option Pricing Mechanism that allows for real-time option pricing and quantity quotations that in turn eliminate slippage.

What is RiskSwap's Singleblock? 🧱

Singleblock is the first iteration of Delta Hedging risk management interface. It allows even inexperienced derivatives traders to effectively hedge their positions by leveraging a multitude of well-known and complex trading strategies. This is done by simply navigating around the interface. Let us clarify with an example.

It is highly likely that options positions will be formed from several positions at once, for instance, with call and put options with the same strike price. If a user is implementing an options strategy by placing orders one by one, there is a high risk that by the time the order is executed the price of the asset will change.

With Singleblock, a user can choose immediate initiation of an option strategy order placement. After that, every enacted order will be initiated simultaneously, saving the user from a potential price-change risk. This can be configured preliminarily by creating an order of options and futures contracts at the same time. Additionally, such a construction will be executed within a single block on the Solana blockchain.

The portfolio overview feature on RiskSwap 📑

Every trader builds their portfolio in their own unique way, but no trader can do without a tool that allows them to effectively keep track of their trades and analyse their portfolio. RiskSwap allows you to do it with its Portfolio Overview tool.

With Portfolio Overview, you can see the summary of your trading results that contain all futures and options trades. You can see Cumulative PNL, its comparison with the benchmark (BTC price), Daily PNL, profit and portfolio assets structure. The tool also shows transaction history that you can sort and filter by trading pair.

Moreover, Portfolio Overview comes with an advanced visualisation feature, where you can choose the parameters, specify a period of time, for which you want them to be shown, and get powerful graphs to gain insight into your trading activity.

Portfolio Overview helps the trader evaluate the state of their portfolio and see the results of their trading activities, which gives them more opportunities to trade profitably. To find out more about RiskSwap, visit our GitBook at https://docs.riskswap.com/
Indicative price in futures trading 🧮

The indicative price is the price calculated for the expiring futures contracts when traders try to close their positions, and it will depend on the date and time of expiration.

Its formula is:
(iP) = ΣiPcm/60

- iP is the indicative price,
- iPcm is the closing price of each minute of trading as specified by the oracle from 02:00 to 03:00 UTC.

The indicative price is not calculated for perpetual contracts as they never settle.
Drumroll, please! 🥁

How will Singleblock work on RiskSwap? ⚙️

Traders often start to understand the degree of complexity of options contracts when they need to manage strategies and track their effectiveness. To initiate these strategies flawlessly, RiskSwap brings in Singleblock, which also contains the first iteration of Delta Hedging risk management interface inside.

So, how to work with it?

🔸 Select an account (in the DeFi protocol, the connection to the Solana blockchain wallet will simply be displayed) and choose an underlying asset to create an options position.

🔸 Add Delta Hedging. When orders are executed, the required number of futures will be bought or sold in parallel so that the position delta equals the level you have set.

🔸 Specify strikes and the number of options.

🔸 Click a button to send the orders to the order book. You will be able to choose among:

◾️ Limit orders, where you choose the prices at which the order will be executed.

◾️ Market orders, where orders will be executed at the best prices in the order book.

◾️ FOK (Fill-or-Kill) orders, in which case orders will be either simultaneously executed at the prices you have set or canceled. Partial closing or opening for this type of order is not allowed.

Pros and cons of futures trading 📊

In today’s post, we are going to tell you about the basics of futures trading: the positives and the downsides. Below, is a graphic representation of the key distinctions of futures trading.
What does push newbies from futures and options trading? ⛔️

Over the last couple of years crypto futures and options (or derivatives) have become an increasingly popular instrument. However, they are complex products, and beginners often shy away from them. So, what is it exactly that stops them?
The answer probably lies in just two words: volatility and leverage. Historically, crypto prices have been extremely volatile and vulnerable to sharp price changes caused by unexpected events or changes in market sentiment. Profits and losses caused by this volatility are therefore amplified by leverage in derivatives.

Moreover, it is challenging to understand the principles of derivatives trading. To make matters worse, the existing GUIs are often too cumbersome, and a multitude of buttons and functions does not help to understand the price behavior of an option position.

Then, in cryptos, options are not well developed yet. While one can trade them properly on the Deribit exchange, on other platforms, especially DEX, the user is faced with a lack of liquidity, large spreads and, in the case of Ethereum, very expensive gas fees. Protocols with liquidity pools tend to inflate premiums, which is not beneficial for buyers either.

In traditional finance, there are often high entry thresholds, such as a minimum deposit of $ 10,000 or a high notional value of one contract. For example, the size of one BTC contract on the CME exchange is 5 bitcoins, which is clearly too expensive for an ordinary retail trader.

Finally, newcomers may be put off by the need to use leverage which amplifies both profits and losses. The latter could lead to the liquidation of the trader’s entire funds and potentially even more.

However, it would be a pity to stay away from such powerful financial instruments as derivatives. RiskSwap offers not only a variety of hedging tools, but also a user-friendly Position Builder interface to model the behavior of a chosen options position.
