2 Simple and Actionable Strategies for Risk Management with Your Borrow Vault
Set an optimal Collateralization Ratio:
Setting an optimal collateralization ratio is crucial when establishing or adjusting your borrow vault. Choose a CR based on your risk tolerance and market outlook to ensure the stability of your borrow vault and prevent liquidation.
In a borrow vault, you deposit collateral and generate DAI. So the easiest way to reduce your risk and increase your CR is to pay back some of your DAI debt or deposit more collateral. You can do this in the overview tab of your vault.
Doing any of these actions will increase your Collateralization Ratio, leaving your vault away from liquidation.
Implement a Dynamic Stop Loss Strategy:
The automated Stop-Loss feature helps you protect your investments from unexpected market downturns. Implementing a dynamic stop-loss strategy allows you to minimize losses and safeguard your borrow vault during periods of market volatility. By avoiding liquidation, you save up to 13% in penalties, and the additional downturn in your asset.
To do so, head to the Protection tab in your vault, and choose Setup Stop-Loss. You can select to close the vault to collateral or DAI when Stop-Loss is triggered. Use the slider to choose the Dynamic Stop-Loss and confirm the transaction. All the new ratios and parameters are visible in the UI before confirming the transaction.
