Liquidation Price
The price when the position is liquidated.
The liquidation price for a position is calculated based on the entry price and amount of collateral provided. The higher the leverage, the lower the collateral amount, therefore the higher the risk of liquidation.
When a position is liquidated, the user loses all the collateral reserved on the position.
Positions can only be liquidated using the price from the Oracle. When our server detects a position due for liquidation based on the Mark Price, it requests the last traded price from the Oracle.
If the liquidation price was generated by a short spike in the mark price and the price swiftly exits the liquidation range, the position will not be liquidated as the price provided by the Oracle comes with a delay of approx. 1min. So if the liquidation price was touched for less than 1 minute, the user's position is safe.
