Further information on the composition, calculation and scheduling of BitMEX indices is available.
This index is composite, which means the price is built from multiple sources. See the Composite Index Breakdown below for information on the constituents. If an exchange is to lose service and no trades are printed for over 15 minutes, BitMEX services may automatically remove that constituent from the index until trading resumes.
Index Weight Calculation
The BitMEX index weights are computed using volume data obtained directly via API connection from each of the constituent exchanges listed above. Proprietary mechanisms are used to identify malformed and anomalous data, which is discarded. The index weight calculation removes constituents with insufficient trade volume.
