How does it work?

What is a settlement?

In your history, you may see the word 'settlement'. Settlement is the process of correcting a negative balance. Let's take an example: Let's say Bitfinex charges a trading fee of 0.1 BTC to user1. But user1 only has dollars in his wallet, and no BTC . So Bitfinex will charge the BTC, and then make a settlement, converting the BTC charged from the dollars balance of user1. To make this conversion, the rate used is the last ask price (if we settle a negative BTC balance) or bid price (if we settle a negative USD balance).
You will then see a debit in your settled balance, and a credit to the other balance.
