There is a lot of information on the Trading page. Please explain.
The platform UI is divided into multiple panels. Everything is designed to be a click away for critical exchange functionality.
Market Details & Instrument Selection
In the default layout, the Market Summary is located on the righthand side in the same container in as the order book. With our new release, this can be customised, we have more information available on how to change the layouts here.
In the top-left corner you can easily navigate between the various instruments offered for trading. Once selected, the remainder of the interface will then display information for the selected instrument.
When you select one of the contracts, it displays the chart in the centre of the dashboard. There is the option to display the trade price or the mark price chart data.
The panel above the the chart can toggle the selected contract information.
You can zoom in and out of the chart using your mouse wheel or scroll by clicking on the chart and moving your mouse.
Trading View provides a lot of functionality such as indicators (e.g. Bollinger Bands), trend lines or adding additional instruments to the same chart.
First, make sure you have selected the right instrument. Then enter the number of contracts you would like to buy or sell. Depending on your order type you might have to provide additional information, such as a limit price. You can auto-populate the limit price field by clicking on a price in the order book.
Whenever you change your entries, the margin information on the right of the order entry section will update. Check that your Initial Margin requirement is smaller than your Available Funds and click on buy or sell.
NOTE: by default, there is no order confirmation. However, this can be activated by selecting the cog for 'Component Settings', navigating to 'Order Form', and selecting 'Require Order Confirmation'
With this selected, once you submit an order, you will be presented with an order confirmation window:
If you want to cancel an order that has not yet been matched, navigate to the bottom panel and select the "Open Orders" tab. Just click the red X at the end of the row and the orders will be removed from the book.
You can also cancel all your open orders at once by clicking the red X in the tab title.
