Margin calculation when collateral is in different currency

July 21st, 2018, 12:12 am

To trade BTC, if USD is required as collateral, how does the margin model need to change if instead of USD, we start accepting other cryptocurrencies such as ETH. How does correlation between BTC and ETH get involved?

I am also interested in this..

BTW.: What margin model are you using now? This is my first time to build a margin model.

Think of it as a cheapest to deliver option.
