Using liquidation to protect traders against market volatility and correlation risks

The problem Liquify solves

Stocks are known for their volatility and this is amplified during margin trading which involves increasing the amount of money you have to trade with by borrowing third-party funds. Margin calls can lead to significant negative balances for traders who do not hedge against risk, especially retail traders.

Our solution aims to provide a safety net for the trader using liquidation.

Challenges we ran into

  • We spent time analyzing the market and understanding how traders use stocks, futures & options.
  • We had to do data analysis on trends seen in retail trading and fit liquidation model accordingly.
  • We had to adapt liquidation mechanism for the stock market.
