If a liquidation order cannot be filled on the Liquidation Platform or the public order book and the Liquidation Reserve is not able to absorb any additional risk, then the positions that need liquidation must be closed out against other open positions on EQUOS. This process is called auto-deleveraging (ADL).

EQUOS has taken a market standard approach to ADL based on profitability and leverage. Positions are ranked based on their P&L percentage and effective leverage. In the case that EQUOS needs to liquidate portfolios through ADL, higher leveraged and more profitable positions are matched first. This process continues until all liquidation orders are filled.
