Market Order Function Introduction
Market order is an order to buy or sell immediately at the best available price. It is entered with order size only.
In order to ensure the trading experience, market buy orders have minimum and maximum total limits, and market sell orders have minimum and maximum amount limits.
The traded market order can be viewed in the ordinary tab under the 24H order history.
*Please note that your market order will turn into a limit order under certain circumstances
When the transaction total you entrust in the market buy order is less than the maximum transaction total (or the commissioned amount in the market sell order is less than the maximum amount), and the corresponding pending order in the order book cannot make your market order complete, a part of your market order will be filled at the best price first, until there is no tradeable order in the order book, the remaining unfilled part of your market order will be automatically converted to a limit order and the order price is the price of the last lot when the market price is matched.
Incomplete market orders can be viewed in the ordinary tab under the open orders
Trigger Order Function Introduction
Trigger Order means that when the latest market transaction price reaches the trigger conditions, the system will place orders according to the pre-set price and quantity set in advance.
Trigger price: When the latest transaction price reaches the set trigger price, the order will be triggered to be placed.
Price: Namely the buying price and the selling price. When the latest price reaches the trigger price, the system automatically orders the order price.
Volume: it means the “order volume” after the Trigger Order is triggered.
Please note that
1.The assets corresponding to the order will not be blocked before the Trigger Order is conducted. After the Trigger Order is conducted (when placing an order to buy or sell according to the pre-set price and volume), the assets corresponding to the order will be blocked.
2. After the trigger order is triggered, it will become a limit order for trading.
3. The Trigger Order may not necessarily be triggered. Affected by factors such as price restrictions, account balances, trading pair delisting, network abnormalities or system upgrades, the Trigger Order may fail to be triggered.
4. The transaction may not necessarily be completed after the Trigger Order is triggered. Affected by market conditions, when the market fluctuates greatly and the price rises or falls sharply, the limit order or market order after the Trigger Order is triggered may not necessarily be traded.
Your untriggered planned orders can be viewed under "Trigger Order", before triggering, you can choose to cancel orders at any time
The trigger orders that have been triggered, cancelled, and failed can be viewed in the "Trigger Order" under "24H Order History"
Trigger orders that have been triggered and not fully completed can be viewed in the "Trigger Order" tab under "Open Orders"
The trigger order that is triggered and fully completed can be viewed in "Ordinary" under "24H Order History"
What are taker and maker?
When you place an order that trades immediately, by filling partially or fully, before going on the order book, those trades will be "taker" trades.
Trades from Market orders are always Takers, as Market orders can never go on the order book. These trades are "taking" volume off of the order book, and therefore called the "taker."
When you place an order that goes on the order book partially or fully (such as a limit order placed via the trading screen on www.hotbit.io ), any subsequent trades coming from that order will be as a “maker.”
These orders add volume to the order book, helping to "make the market," and are therefore termed the "maker" for any subsequent trades.
What is Hide Orders?
By choosing to hide their orders, users will be able to ensure that the order(s) they place will neither be displayed in the orderbook nor affect other traders. The major advantages of this function include:
1. providing our users with more abundant trading strategies to ease our users concerns regarding the fact that in case any large order(s) is (are) placed, the market trend of the token(s) involved on the orderbook will be affected accordingly as well, especially for those tokens with less liquidity.
1.1 Suppose user A intends to place an order and sell out a certain type of token in large quantity within a short period of time, such action will thus form a selling pressure on all sell orders on orderbook.
1.2 Suppose user B intends to place an order and buy in a certain type of token in large quantity within a short period of time, such action will thus cause a dramatic increase in all buy orders on the orderbook.
2. Improving the experience of takers by providing taker orders with the opportunity to close the deal with a better price than the price listed on orderbook.
2.1 Suppose user A intends to buy in a certain type of token within a short period of time, by placing his/her order with the price of market order, user A’s order will be matched, settled and closed with the hidden order listed ahead of the “buy 1” order listed on orderbook in a better price.
2.2 Suppose user B intends to sell out a certain type of token within a short period of time, by placing his/her order with the price of market order, user B’s order will be matched, settled and closed with the hidden order listed ahead of the “sell 1” order listed on orderbook in a better price.
