Background

Deribit API allows you to pull real-time information regarding your portfolio and markets. Harnessing this data as an institutional investor may allow you to make better real-time trading decisions and provide historical tracking of portfolio performance. Using Cryptosheets allows you to pull this information right into excel, making it easy for everyone to analyze this information. We have investors that are not technically proficient enough to use python, and love seeing this data in spreadsheet form.

A few examples of utility:

  • Tracking your Portfolio Balance is a really important step in Portfolio Risk Management. We are given insight into how we have performed in different market regimes. Deribit pulls information from all your subaccounts on the platform, allowing you to take snapshots.

  • One of the ways one could look at why our portfolio moved in a certain way is by tracking our current and historical delta and theta. This shows how we were positioned ahead of some moves in the market. This is important as you want to make sure you have the correct amount of exposure on, for the move you anticipate.

  • Other metrics such as the amount of Premium Outstanding allow us to see what our portfolio greeks were composed of. You can further bucket this information into Call Premium & Put Premium. These statistics can be used to understand the exposure of your strategy (IE Call Overwriting / Collaring / Put Underwriting).
  • Combining these tools, we can create dashboards that convey useful information regarding your portfolio.
