II. Principles for Sample selection for MEXC Index Product
To ensure MEXC Index Product represents asset class comprehensively, MEXC takes the underlying assets’ market cap, trading volume, liquidity, fluctuation, stability, risks and market assessment into consideration to select the most representative cryptos as the samples for index Products.
To ensure MEXC Index are investable, MEXC will verify the weighting of the samples in the index in every regulated period. It will remove or adjust the sample’s weighting based on its market capitalization (The impact of removing samples of small market value on the index price is negligible. )
To ensure transparency, MEXC displays the net asset value (NAV) of the index on the trading page. Besides, the sample’s weighting and price is indicated in real-time. This will provide a reference for users who want to buy the Index Product.
III. MEXC Index Product Construction Method and Calculation Formula
t0: the benchmark time in the construction of the index;
tn: the latest time of the index Product;
M(t0): benchmark price of the index Product at the time of t0;
M(tn): the price of the index Product at the time of tn;
Pi(t0): the trading price of the i underlying asset at the time of t0.
Pi(tn): the trading price of the i underlying asset at the time of tn.
Mi (t0): the initial market cap weighting of the i underlying asset at the time of t0: Mi (t0)= daily average trading volume of the underlying asset in the last month / the sum of the average trading volume of all underlying assets in the last month; (According to investable principle, the weighting will be adjusted manually in reference to the daily average trading volume)
IV. Introduction of Re-adjustment Mechanism for Index Product
(1) MEXC will adjust the index components and their weightings every 30 days with the issuing date as the benchmark time (that is May 27).
(2) Index samples adjustment: MEXC will remove the index samples of high risks that no longer meet the sample selection criteria and take the adjustment date as the benchmark date to recalculate index price and index net value.
(3) Index weighting adjustment: Normally, MEXC will adjust the weighting of the index samples based on their daily circulating market cap in the last 30 days.
V. Introduction for Index Product Construction and Net Value Calculation
MEXC Index Product is an open-ended index fund. Investors can gain an average profit of the market by tracking the rise & fall of the index product. Normally, the rise and fall of the theoretical net value of MEXC index product is the same as the rise and fall of the index price. The only difference is the setting of the benchmark price. When dividend, merger, split, and management expense happens, it may result in the inconsistency between the variation of the theoretical net value of index product and that of the index price. If so, we will issue relevant announcements.
VI. Index Product Purchase and Sale Principle
- Index Product follows the “buying by amount while selling by total” principle. i.e. users enter purchase amount, and the system will distribute a number of shares of the index after the purchase succeed. Upon selling, users enter the selling total (shares), and the system will distribute the sale amount to the user after the selling succeed.
- Index Product follows the “Unknown Price” principle, i.e. the purchase/selling price is based on the real-time net value of the index, which may deviate from the reference net value upon submitting the buy/sell application.
(1) Purchase net value=purchase amount * (1 – purchase fee rate)/purchase total; 4 decimal places will be kept;
(2)Selling net value = Selling amount / (1 – selling fee rate) / selling total; 4 decimal places will be kept;
- The purchase/sale follows the “first come, first served” principle, i.e. purchase or selling orders will be executed in order.
- If the purchase/selling application has not concluded and is in the “applying” state, the user can cancel the application. If not, the user is unable to cancel the order.
- For the purchase/selling order, there are only filled or failed cases; there’s no partially filled case to protect the user’s right.
- If a large number of purchase/selling applications are placed in a short period, it may bring a large impact to the samples of the index. As a result, it may cause a large price swing for underlying samples and liquidity risks and therefore, aggravate fluctuation risks of the theoretical net value of the index Product, resulting in unnecessary losses for users. In this connection, if the market fluctuates abruptly or a large number of purchase/selling applications place in a short period, the risk control mechanism may be triggered, causing the failure of purchase or selling. In that case, please try again after the market becomes stable.
