Connect Your Wallet

When you arrive to the trading app, connect your MetaMask wallet.

Portfolio View

The home page allows traders to view their net profit and loss, the markets available, collateral, leverage, and funding in a simplified view.

Opening Trade

  1. 1.
    Choose the direction (long or short).
  2. 2.
    Enter the notional size you want to trade (specified in base asset) and adjust your slippage tolerance. You can select to use market orders or limit orders.
  1. 1.
    If you are using the leverage slider, make sure to double check the final size of your trade. Since cross-margin is used by default, you can only specify one of size or leverage and not both. For more on margin, see here.
  2. 2.
    Maximum size displayed as "Up to xxx" is only an estimate, and a sudden change in price can cause the trade to not meet the initial margin check, resulting in the execution failure.

Advanced Order Types

You can select the checkbox "Stop Loss / Take Profits" to apply stop losses and take profits. These can also be added/modified after entering the trade.
Note that as of now, you need to sign separate transactions for each advanced order.
Once your trades are submitted, you can see them in the "Positions" page, or in the "Limit Orders" page which contains both general limit orders and the limit orders placed for any stop losses or take profits.


Finally, you can check the history of all your trades in the "History" page.
