Flexible Leverage Indices implement a collateralized debt position in a controlled and efficient way to achieve leveraged returns and, by abstracting its management into a simple index, make leverage strategies broadly accessible. Debt position maintenance is automated by the index rules and a unique algorithm helps to reduce rebalancing turnover. BTC2x-FLI targets 2x price exposure to BTC.
FLIt = FLIt-1 * (1 + (Pricet/Pricet-1 – 1) * CLRt-1 – BorrowRatet * (CLRt-1 – 1))
Current Leverage Ratio for next epoch
CLRt+1 = max(MINLR, min(MAXLR, CLRt * (1 – RS) + TLR * RS))
The index rebalances every 24 hours and determines a new leverage ratio based on the above formula.
The methodologist has discretion to update any of the parameters at any time via IIP to
improve or protect the integrity of the product.
BTC2x-FLI has a 1.95% annual streaming fee.
A 0.1% fee is charged upon minting/redemption.
