The Trade tab is where all trading actions are performed by a trader. This section consists of the Order placement module, Charts, Order book and the Order/Position management modules.

The Trade page, ie. the Trading Terminal, is where all trading activity is performed by a trader. Here you will be able to monitor the market via Charts, place orders, manage active positions and view a detailed history of your trades:

The Trading terminal consists of the following sections:

  • Order Placement module (outlined in yellow)

  • Chart, Order Book and Last Trades (outlined in purple)

  • Orders and Positions management module (green)

Let’s review each separate module.

  1. Collateral information - reflects the chosen collateral and the available balance for the chosen collateral

  2. Order types - Limit, Market, Stop Market

  3. Order size USD - full size of your order (in USD) taking into account selected leverage

  4. Margin slider - can be used to automatically calculate the % of your available balance to be used in a trade

  5. Order Size - full size of your order in the selected collateral currency

  6. Leverage - used to select the leverage for new orders

  7. Buy/Sell - place a long (buy) order or a short (sell) order

  8. Margin cost - the amount of personal funds which are required and reserved in order to open a position

Orders and Positions Management Section

Located at the bottom part of the Trade terminal is the Orders and Positions management module:

Here traders can manage active orders and open positions. This module is highly customizable and allows traders to add/remove desired info columns, filter orders and positions by date as well as view orders and positions history.

Chart, Order Book and Last Trades

The Chart, Order book and Last Trades module are the most crucial tools when trading as they provide traders with direct information about the current market movements, market depth and price trends of an asset:

Margex charts are plotted based on the last price an asset was traded at.

Margex aggregates liquidity from a pool of liquidity providers (12 currently) and by arbitraging between them, we are able to provide the best possible price, which reflects the pricings across exchanges (liquidity providers) from which liquidity is aggregated.

When trading, we recommend following Margex charts if referring to an asset's price:

  • The Order Book reflects the current Buy (ask) and Sell (bid) Limit orders of market participants as well as details regarding market depth. The Order Book acts as an additional instrument that helps traders monitor market activity and provides valuable information for traders when reviewing the current market trends

  • Last Trades reflects the last performed trades on the market in real time. This provides additional valuable information for traders when making trading decisions

We utilize the charting engine provided by TradingView for our chart solution. It offers advanced charting tools and creates an environment where market enthusiasts can engage, analyze data, and prepare for trading activities involving BTCUSD and various other assets.
