Summary: The funding rate is the interest charged / credited to a perpetual trader for taking a long or short position. The direction of the funding rate is used as an indicator of trader sentiment (+ve = ; -ve = ), and therefore useful to plot in real time.
The FTX exchange has published the calculation of their funding rate as follows:
TWAP((future - index) / index) / 24
The formula here is the same, but expresses it in the more common % per 8hr duration:
funding = TWAP((future / index) - 1) * (8 / 24) * 100
For reference: future refers to the FTX bitcoin futures contract price (FTX:BTCPERP) and index is the spot price of bitcoin on the exchange (FTX:BTCUSD)
- Probably best to add to the indicator to a new pane, or as secondary axis
- Plot this in combination with FTX:BTCPERP or FTX:BTCUSD, or chart of your choice to complement your bitcoin dashboard
- Compare to funding rates published on ViewBase
- questions? Ask me!
- Used step plot to show that funding changes each hour
- Added a zero line for reference. You can actually add alert now for when zero-crossing occurs (use at own risk!)
- Default values updated for better accuracy; funding should now be viewed on hourly timeframe, with 1m/1hr resolution setting.
Add'l exchange pairs (exchange / perp symbol / spot symbol):
FTX / FTX:BTCPERP / FTX:BTCUSD
BINANCE / BINANCE:BTCUSDTPERP / BINANCE:BTCUSDT
OKEX / OKEX:BTCUSDTPERP / OKEX:BTCUSDT
HUOBI / HUOBI:BTCPERP / HUOBI:BTCUSDT (! This pair seems visibly *incorrect*)

- The plot look a little cleaner using linewidth = 1 and a step line. Substitute the following:
plot(funding, "FUNDING", orange, linewidth=1, transp=0, style=stepline)
- Also, since funding is probably calculated each hour, you might want to keep the dropdown option "Resolution for Funding Interval" set to 1h. For a more continuous or dynamic calculation of what the funding should be, select "same as chart" from the dropdown, and use a shorter timeframe.
