Top left corner of the trading page has a dropdown menu where you select the cryptocurrency pair you want to view or trade. You can view all the pairs or narrow your options down by markets. They are divided into markets by EUR, USDC, BTC, DAI, ETH.
Go to the dropdown menu right above where you logged in to select the cryptocurrency pair you wish to trade.There are tabs for “Buy” and “Sell,” which are color-coded green and red/orange. Click on the relevant tab depending on your desired order type.Immediately below those tabs, you will see three tabs for your chosen order type: Market, Limit, or Stop. Each prompts you to fill in the amount you want to buy or sell.
Depending on the order type, you will also get additional fields to fill in. With Limit orders, you also enter the limit price and choose from execution of “Post Only” or “Allow Taker” with the advanced option of a time in force policy, which is set as default to Good Til Cancelled. You can change this to Good Til Time, Immediate or Cancel, or Fill or Kill. With Stop orders, you select the amount, the stop price, and the limit price.
Regardless of your chosen order type, the fee you will pay and total in the target cryptocurrency are listed and automatically updated directly above the button to “Place Buy/Sell Order.” Click on this button once you are satisfied with the information entered.
The orderbook has columns for market size, price, and “My Size” and lists sell orders on top and buy orders below. The trade history is listed in chronological order, with each trade color-coded to indicate buy or sell. There are columns for the trade size, price, and time, down to the second.
Half of the page’s width, you will find the price chart. On the right, you can choose to change this to a depth chart if you prefer. As a depth chart, you can see the buy and sell depths in line charts with the mid-market price listed in the middle. Hovering over any point will tell you the specific price, the amount you can buy/sell at that point, and what the total would be in the original.
If you select the price chart, on the top right corner of it, you will see the open, high, low, close, and volume values for any point that you hover over. When you hover over a point, you will also see the specific time on the horizontal axis and the specific price on the vertical axis. The default chart type is a candlestick chart, although you can change it to a line chart if you prefer.
Go to “My Wallets” and click “Deposit.” You will choose the type of currency you wish to deposit and given an address to send the coins to.
Withdrawing cryptocurrency is similarly easy. Go to “My Wallets” then “Withdraw.” Choose the currency type and enter the wallet where you want to send the currency.
