Examples on Spot
Order Settings

1. Set Limit Order

a. Maker

To make an example, we want to set a limit order which use USDT to exchange CET in the CET/USDT spot market:

(1) We suppose the current latest deal price for CET/USDT is 0.076502, and the current 1st place selling price is 0.076502.

(2) Choose 『Limit』order

(3) Set the 『Price: 0.076430』& 『Amount: 500

(4) Check and confirm the 『 Execution Value: 38.215 USDT

(5) Click 『Buy CET』to send the order

After the order has been submitted successfully, it will be sent into the market and take the 1st buyer place. When the market price fluctuates to 0.076430, the order will start to be executed step by step. The same for a limit order (Maker) to sell.

b. Taker

To make an example, we want to set a limit order which use USDT to exchange CET in the CET/USDT spot market:

(1) We suppose the current latest deal price for CET/USDT is 0.075433, and the current 1st place selling price is 0.075507.

(2) Choose 『Limit』order

(3) Set the 『Price: 0.075507』& 『Amount: 99

(4) Check and confirm the 『 Execution Value: 7.475193 USDT

(5) Click 『Buy CET』to send the order

After the order has been submitted successfully, because the amount that you want to buy is less than the selling amount of the current 1st place seller, the order will be executed by the price 0.075507 immediately. The same for a limit order (Taker) to sell.

2. Set Market Order

a. Set Market Order to buy

To make an example, we want to use USDT to exchange CET under market price in the CET/USDT spot market:

(1) Observe the market depth of existing sell orders

(2) Choose 『Market Price』order

(3) Set the 『Value: 20 USDT

(4) Click 『Buy CET』to send the order

After the order has been submitted successfully, it will be sent into the market and be executed in sequence on the basis of the market best prices until the order has been completely executed.

If you want to set a large amount of purchase, please pay high attention to the current market depth of existing sell orders to protect yourself from market slippage.

b. Set Market Order to sell

To make an example, we want to sell CET to exchange USDT under market price in the CET/USDT spot market:

(1) Observe the market depth of existing buy orders

(2) Choose 『Market Price』order

(3) Set the 『Value: 50 CET

(4) Click 『Sell CET』to send the order

After the order has been submitted successfully, it will be sent into the market and be executed in sequence on the basis of the market best prices until the order has been completely executed.

If you want to set a large amount of selling, please pay highly attention to the current market depth of existing buy orders to protect yourself from market slippage.

3. Set Stop-Limit Order

a. Take Profit

To make an example, we suppose that it will encounter difficulties when the price of CET goes up to 0.15 in the CET/USDT margin trading market, for the purpose of stopping profit, we could set a Stop-Limit order under the long position as follows:

(1) Choose 『Stop-Limit』order

(2) Set the price of 『Stop: 0.15

(3) Set the price of 『Limit: 0.15

(4) Set the 『Amount: 375

(5) Click 『Sell CET』to send the order

After the order has been submitted successfully, it will not be sent into the market immediately. The order would only be triggered when the latest market price reaches 0.15, at this time the order you set before, which is to sell 375 CET by the price of 0.15 each, would be sent into the market automatically and then be executed in sequence. The same for a Stop-Limit order to stop profit under the short position.

None of your assets would be frozen when you submit an order, but once the order has been triggered, it would not be successful if your available assets are not enough.

b. Stop Loss

To make an example, under the situation of a liquidation price of 0.013506, we suppose that it will continue falling down when the price of CET has already fallen to 0.07 in the CET/USDT margin trading market, for the purpose of stopping loss, we could set a Stop-Limit order under the long position as follows:

(1) Choose 『Stop-Limit』order

(2) Set the price of 『Stop: 0.07

(3) Set the price of 『Limit: 0.07

(4) Set the 『Amount: 375

(5) Click 『Sell CET』to send the order

After the order has been submitted successfully, it will not be sent into the market immediately. The order would only be triggered when the latest market price reaches 0.07, at this time the order you set before, which is to sell 375 CET by the price of 0.07 USDT each, would be sent into the market automatically and then be executed in sequence. The same for a Stop-Limit order to stop loss under the short position.

None of your assets would be frozen when you submit an order, but once the order has been triggered, it would not be successful if your available assets are not enough.
