Step 5: Placing a buy/sell order is exemplified on the image below. First an account is to be selected for which the API is already set up.
Secondly, a drop-down appears where the “Order Type” can be selected. The six different order types can be explained as follows:
Limit orders allow you to set a maximum purchase price for your buy order, or a minimum sale price for your sell orders. If the market doesn't reach your limit price, your order will not be executed.
Market orders will go into market to execute at the best available price, however the execution and the price is not guaranteed.
Volume-Weighted Average Price (VWAP)
A trading algorithm based on pre-computed schedule which is used in an execution of a bigger order without excessive impact on the market price.
Time-Weighted Average Price (TWAP)
A trading algorithm based on weighted average price used to execution of bigger orders without excessive impact on the market price. It may be easy to guess trading pattern of the running strategy if its orders are not modified in a special way, so parameters can be adjusted to make strategy harder to track. The most common solutions are randomizing orders’ size and/or delay time between them. It is possible to limit quantity to not exceed a defined percent of volume particip, to minimize strategies’ impact on the market.
Iceberg orders are large single orders that have been divided into smaller limit orders for the purpose of hiding the actual order quantity.
Triggered orders are sent to the market when a predefined market condition is met. The parent order contains trigger parameters either set explicitly (LTP, Bid, or Ask) or based upon the inside market price in the Buy/Sell direction of the order (Same Side or Opposite Side).
LIP algorithm fetches order books from exchanges, merges those order books into one order book and goes through it until it filled the amount that user has sent. Then groups and sums orders by exchange, and returns instructions which amount the user needs to buy or sell and on which exchange.
We are using only top exchanges. To find top exchanges we are filtering exchanges from user accounts that every user has in the exchange manager. In case of sufficient exchange usage, the exchange is added to the list for LIP algorithm.
User selects if he wants to kill only algo orders, only open orders or both. For open orders: algorithm fetches open orders from exchange and cancels orders. For algo orders: algorithm sets flag on algo order which forces system to break out of worker which is processing order que for that algo order.
Nuke algorithm fetches all balances for all accounts on exchange manager. Finds all balances that are greater than zero and creates market sell order for BTC.
After double-checking the details, either push the button “Buy” or “Sell”.
The orderbook shows the current in-place buy and sell orders, while trade history, as the name suggests, contains orders that have been filled in the past.
By setting an alert on a specific condition, leads to an alert in the sense of an email, in case the conditions are met.
The News tab shows all distributed news for the selected trading pair.
