Hi guys – just wondering if there are any pinned chats with more info on the spot-futures arbitrage bots.

Specifically, I was directed towards them as the ‘lower’ risk option versus grid trading, however yesterdays rates in ETH were as deeply negative as -250% APR. As I am new, this was not something I was expecting in my range of possible outcomes. I was told that rates are headed back into positive territory which seems to be the case today. Has anyone here have any advice when it comes to these flash crash highly negative returns?

Ignore the small amounts involved. My query was not related to the sizes of the loss (which are tiny). I’m interested in knowing how frequent these types of event are?

Answer

You must not open with negative Funding
In any case, they do not usually last long, currently they are already positive

Rare, only when the market falls this hard
