The Quick Trade tab supports market, limit and stop orders for trading stocks, ETFs and futures markets. It is the easiest way to setup lists of markets you are interested in following and placing trades.
From the ‘Market Type’ table select the radio button for the type of market you want to watch. In the example we have selected Futures markets. All the available markets will display in the table to the right. Highlight the market and month (if trading futures) you are interested in trading and click on the Add Symbol button below the table. The market will be added to the register on the left with a blue ‘buy’ and a red ‘sell’ button.
You can save your market list by clicking the green ‘Save as’ button and giving your list a name. You can recall your trade list by clicking the ‘Load’ button and selecting the list you want to work with.
You can have as many Watch Lists as you want. Just save each one with a unique name.
The left column shows the total cash balance for the account represented in all the available currencies. The right column shows the cash collateral that is not currently allocated to a trade. Since retail accounts have 5:1 leverage that means you are looking at the available cash which can then be multiplied by 5 to represent your entire available margin. In this example the trader has 6 BTC which has a current value of 3000 USD. If the 3000 USD are multiplied by 5 it yields 15,000 dollars of available margin.
Equities and ETFs only trade during Exchange hours. Futures markets trade 24 x 7.
On the Position Management tab
The Currency Switch Service allows you to move your trading margin from bitcoins to other currencies and back without closing your market trades. You can trade up to 2 times the number of bitcoins you have in your account on the Currency Switch tab.
The Currency Switch service is available 24 x 7.
Pick the column that relates to the currency you wish to trade.
At the top of the column of the currency you are trading, you will see a green Close button. Clicking that will return your fiat balance to zero.
It’s time to verify your account and get trading stocks using your bitcoins as trading margin.
After we send email approval of your Live Trading – Investor Service Account. Log in and go to the Deposit / Withdrawal tab
Click on the ‘Generate Wallet ID’ button. The ‘Copy Wallet ID’ button places that 34 character code into your computer’s copy buffer so it can be pasted into your personal wallet to initiate a bitcoin transfer. When you add the code to your personal wallet spot check the numbers to make sure malware has not inserted a hacker’s wallet address to your computer’s buffer fraudulently. Checking the first 4 or last 4 characters is a good rule of thumb whenever copying wallet data.
Everything else works just like it did in the demonstration account. Good luck. Please consider sharing your views with us and other traders on our Facebook page. Or let us know if there is any way we can make the platform better.
