Rate Limit

IP Rate Limit


If you receive an HTTP 403 (Access Denied) response, your IP has been either temporarily or permanently banned. You should immediately review the below guidelines to ensure your application does not continue to violate the limit. If you are still banned after 30 minutes, you likely have a permanent ban.

We do not recommend running your application at the very edge of these limits in case abnormal network activity results in an unexpected violation.

  • GET/POST method (shared):
    • No more than 600 requests are allowed in any 5-second window.

All traffic to or share this limit regardless of if it accesses Spot, Derivatives or Options.

After violating the limit your IP will be banned for a set period of time (usually 30 minutes). Continually violating the limit will result in a permanent ban. We cannot undo permanent bans or shorten temporary bans.

API Rate Limit


If you receive "ret_msg": "Too many visits!" in the JSON response, you have hit the API rate limit.


For now, api rate limit for Unified margin is a bit different.

  • linear: rate limit is count by minute
  • option: rate limit is count by second

The API rate limit is based on the rolling time window per second and UID. In other words, it is per second per UID. Every request to the API returns response header shown in the code panel:

  • X-Bapi-Limit-Status - your remaining requests for current endpoint
  • X-Bapi-Limit - your current limit for current endpoint
  • X-Bapi-Limit-Reset-Timestamp - the timestamp indicating when your request limit resets if you have exceeded your rate_limit. Otherwise, this is just the current timestamp.
