Take a quick look at the main components available in the Xena Exchange terminal. 

Sending new orders and determining their types

There are several types of orders available at Xena Exchange. Generally, they are all divided into the following categories:

  • Limit (buy or sell at a specified price)

  • Market (buy or sell at the current market price)

  • Stop (pending orders that are automatically executed once the market price reaches the stop price)


Keep in mind that limit and market orders hold part of your balance when placed (even if they are not executed immediately).

 

Use hotkeys to quickly change the price and quantity of your order.

To learn more about the order types and their differences, read the Order Types section. 


After you click on the Place order button, the platform will ask you to confirm the order. You can enable the one-click trading mode by checking "Do not ask for confirmation" or using the settings tab of the New Order component.

Market watch

In the top-left corner of the terminal, you can switch between spot and contract trading as well as select the instrument to trade.


The market watch shows all the instruments traded on Xena Exchange. Click on an instrument’s name to reveal related details such as the chart, order book, etc.


You can also customize the columns using the Settings tab.


Hint: press I (Instrument) on your keyboard to search for instruments.


Price chart: getting down to trading

The price chart is at the heart of the terminal. There, you can see the chart in the form of candlesticks (default) and can customize it chart to meet your trading needs.



The proprietary trading signals available at Xena Exchange are located at the top of the terminal. 


You can learn more about the proprietary trading signals on Xena Exchange in this article, and you can find information about the trend power here.


If you want to use other trading indicators, choose the ones you need at the top of the price chart. We have a series of articles on how to read different indicators and trading strategies. Below are some articles related to this topic, and more can be found on the Xena Exchange blog.


Disclaimer: Any signals and indicators presented on the platform, including trend power signals, are based on technical analyses and are predefined algorithms that use the history of prices, the state of the order book, and other reference information as defined. These tools should not be used without a thorough market analysis. No tools can guarantee future profits or predict the movement of markets with absolute precision. The results of trend power algorithms do not constitute investment advice. You solely are responsible for the trading and investment decisions you make.


Active orders

The Active Orders table shows all your orders that have not been rejected, canceled, or filled completely. More information about the order lifecycle is available here.


To cancel an order, hover over the table row and click on the cross icon that appears. Note that orders are canceled without asking for confirmation.

  • Order ID is the ID assigned to your order (ClOrdId). If you are trading using a Xena Exchange terminal, this ID will be generated automatically.

  • List ID is used to link the main order and the stop-loss and take-profit orders. Note that canceling any of the linked orders doesn't affect the other orders.

  • Order Qty is the initial quantity of the order you submitted.

  • Leaves Qty shows the unfilled quantity.

  • Price Cap shows the price beyond which an attempt zero-loss order won't be moved.

Positions

We have developed a position-tracking feature to provide traders with real-time information about their trading performance.

Whenever you purchase or deposit cryptocurrency to your account at Xena Exchange, we remember the price of that currency. As the price grows or falls over time, we calculate your floating profit or loss and display it in the trading terminal or on the investments page.


Unrealized PL (profit and loss) is calculated as the difference between the opening price of the position and the current market price, multiplied by the volume (quantity) of the position. It shows your approximate gain or loss if you were to close the position (sell all the respective currency) at the current market price. 


Total PL includes all trading and withdrawal fees you’ve paid and the financial results of all previous trading operations executed.


You can learn more about Positions & Yield here.


Trade History

Your trade history shows the last 30 trades on your account. To see your full trade history, go to the Trade History page on your account.

  • Order ID is the identifier of the order that initiated the trade.

  • Price shows the real execution price.

  • Net payment is the calculated value of the trade without commission.

  • Comm is the commission you paid for the trade. Note that maker's rebates are not shown in this field (if your trade qualifies for a rebate, its commission will be displayed as 0).

  • Total payment is how much you paid or received with the commission.
