Main chart area

Settings bar

  • Chart timeframe - allows you to switch between the different timeframe

  • Chart Type - allows you to change your chart to a different type (Candles, Bars, Line, etc.)

  • Indicators menu - using this menu you are able to set indicators on your chart

  • 24h change (%) - percentage by which the price has changed in the last 24 hours

  • 24h volume - the sum of all trades for the last 24 hours

Graphic tools bar

Timeframe/axis settings

Here you can set up the timeframe of the chart, choose a specific date, see current time, and axis customization options, like %, log, and auto.


The Orders section is used to show a snapshot of open orders when opening the Trade page. The actual status of orders updates in real-time until you leave the Trade page or refresh it. You can click on any of the orders to find additional information about it.

By default, only orders of the selected trading pair are shown after loading the Trade page. You can also see orders of all your trading pairs by selecting Show All Pairs. If a chosen account has no orders, the Order Details section will be empty.

When a new order is placed, the details about that order are dynamically added to the Order Details section. When an order is partially or fully filled, or its status changes (to Pending, Cancelling, Canceled, Rejected, Expired, Filled, etc.), the information about the order status is also updated in the Order Details section.

You can also cancel your open orders using one of the following options:

  1. Cancel one selected open order

  2. Cancel all open orders for selected trading pair

  3. Cancel all open orders
