The base price is the weighted average price of all contributing orders to a position. In other words, it is the position’s breakeven value.
On Bitfinex, you can have only one margin position opened per trading pair at a time. Every time a new margin order is made for a trading pair with an already active margin position, the base price is adjusted to reflect the profit/loss partially realised by the new order.
Therefore, the base price does not necessarily represent one trade price; rather, it represents the average price of the previous orders of this margin position. It is an approximation of the position’s breakeven price.
