On Bitfinex, you can only have one position opened per pair at a time. Every time an order is made on margin, if the position is not closed, the base price is adjusted to reflect the profit/loss partially realized by the new order. This is why the base price does not necessarily represent one trade price; rather, it represents the average price of the previous orders of this position. It is an approximation of the position’s breakeven price.
