Placing Orders

Market orders refer to trades that are purchasing a given asset at the current market price (i.e. spot price) for the asset. You can place a market order by following these instructions: 


  • Choose the trading pair - click on the trading pair you want to use to trade 
  • Choose the order type - click on the order type you would like to use
  • Enter the trade size - define either the amount of crypto or the US dollar notional value to determine the size of the trade
  • Specify your order price - if using a price order, such as a limit or stop, enter the price at which you want to place the order. If using a market order, no price needs to be entered.
  • Choose to buy or sell - click on the buy or sell button to submit the order

Order Type

Trades can be submitted with different conditions known as order types. These order types allow traders to specify criteria related to how and at what price a trade may be placed.


CoinList Pro supports several order types, including:


Market


  • Description - market orders execute at the next available price in the market. No price is specified with the order, and the order is filled at the current market price
  • Use case - traders use market orders to enter or exit a trade quickly when execution certainty is a higher priority than price execution
  • Traders should be cautious when using market orders in thinly traded markets where the bid-ask spread may be wide and liquidity may represent an issue for price slippage, causing orders to get filled for a higher price if they are buying, or a lower price if they are selling

A market order is the most straightforward type of order. It executes immediately against the best price available. As long as there are willing buyers and sellers, market orders are filled.


A market sell will match the best available bids on the order book, and a market buy will match against the best available asks on the order book.

Market orders are often used when you need to prioritize speed over price, for example, when taking advantage of a fast-moving bull run. You'll use this order when you need your trade to execute immediately at the current best price available.


Limit


  • Description - limit orders are used to specify a price limit at which the order must be executed. Limit orders to buy are placed below the market and limit orders to sell are placed above the market. Since the limit order must be filled at the designated price or better, traders use limits to define the worst price at which the order will be executed, prioritizing price execution over execution certainty
  • Use case - traders use limit orders to enter positions, setting orders at points that act as profit targets, as well as to exit positions. Limits can be placed in advance once a position has been entered, and the order will automatically execute once the price conditions have been met
  • Since a limit order must be executed at the specified price or better, the market may touch the limit price several times with the trader not receiving a fill, depending on where the trader’s order is in order book queue
  • The market must trade completely through a limit order’s price in order for a trader to earn a complete fill and partial fills can occur if only part of the order is executed
  • A limit order remains in the order book until the order is either executed, canceled, or expires

A limit order allows you to specify a price and amount you would like to buy or sell at.


Example: If the current market price is 8000 and you want to buy lower than that at 7900, then you would place a limit buy order at 7900. If the market reaches 7900 and a seller’s ask matches with your bid, your limit order will be executed at 7900.


Stop Market


  • Description - stop market orders execute at the next available price once the designated trigger price crosses the stop price. Stop orders to buy are placed above the market and stop orders to sell are placed below the market. 
  • Use case - traders typically use stop orders in an attempt to limit losses if the market moves against a market position or to protect profits on an open position, but the order type can also be used to initiate a new position. Once the stop price is touched, the stop order is said to have been "elected," will be treated as a market order, and will be filled at the best possible price
  • Stop orders do not guarantee execution at the stop order price, and price slippage may occur in certain market conditions. Unlike limit orders, stops are not required to be executed at the designated price or better

CoinList Pro supports two kinds of triggerable orders: stops and take profits. These are orders that aren't added to the order book until some price threshold is reached.


Stop Market / Limit


A stop market or stop limit order is an instruction to add a market or limit order to the book once the trigger price has crossed the stop price. By default, the stop price indicates the mark price at which to trigger the stop, but stops may also be configured to trigger on last trade price or underlying index price rather than mark price.


Stop orders rest in the matching engine until the trigger price goes 'outside' the stop price:

  • buy - the stop triggers when the trigger price is greater than or equal to the stop price
  • sell - the stop triggers when the trigger price is less than or equal to the stop price

Upon triggering, the stop order is converted to a regular market or limit order. This order becomes available for execution in the first auction following the one which triggered the stop. The order will incur the standard fees, as any order inserted at the time of the trigger would.


While it is untriggered, a stop order is invisible to other traders, and is not included in the book. Once it is triggered it becomes visible (as it is now a normal market or limit order).


Note that the time priority of the order is based on the time at which it was triggered, rather than the time at which the stop was last updated.


Trailing Stop


A stop market order may be specified with either a fixed or percentage trail value, which causes the stop price to be pegged to no more than a fixed offset away from the order's trigger price (which is a mark price, index price, or last trade price, depending on the order's specified trigger type).


When the trigger price moves away from the current stop price, the stop price is moved as well, thus the stop price trails the trigger price. (Note however that when the trigger price moves towards the current stop price, the stop price doesn't change, otherwise the order would never trigger.)


For example, on a stop market sell order, setting a $-100 trail value will have the effect of setting the stop price $100 below the trigger price. If the trigger price is $1000 at the time the order is entered, the stop price will be $900. If the trigger price moves up to $1050, the stop price will be updated to $950. If the trigger price then moves down to $990, the stop price will stay at $950, and if the trigger price keeps moving all the way down to $950, the order will be triggered, and will convert to a normal market sell.


In other words, the stop price of a stop sell order will move up along with the market, but is kept constant as the price falls towards the stop (and vice-versa for a stop buy order).


Take Profit Market


  • Description - take profit, or market-if-touched, orders execute at the next available price once the designated trigger price (by default, the mark price) crosses the stop price
  • Use case - traders typically use take profit orders to exit positions once a price level has been reached although the order type can be used to initiate a position as well. Since the order executes at market once the market trades at the order price, execution certainty is prioritized over price execution
  • Take profit orders do not guarantee execution at the order price, and price slippage may occur in certain market conditions. Unlike limit orders, take profits are not required to be executed at the designated price or better
  • A take profit order will not be executed if the trigger price fails to touch the take profit specified price

A take market or take limit order is the same as a stop market or limit order, but with the trigger directions reversed. That is:

  • buy - the take profit order triggers when the trigger price is less than or equal to the stop price
  • sell - the take profit order triggers when the trigger price is greater than or equal to the stop price

Post-Only Order 


The post-only order is a limit order that ensures the order will be added to the book and not match with a pre-existing order. If your order matches with a pre-existing order, your post-only limit order will be rejected.


The Post-Only Order ensures that you will receive the maker rebate, and not pay a taker fee. It prevents placing a limit buy order that matches against the sell side of the order book (and vice versa, for sell orders), which would normally result in taker fees.

Maker and Taker Definitions

In theory, a Maker is an order that adds liquidity to the order book and a Taker is an order that removes liquidity.


In practice, there are some edge cases on CoinList Pro that one should be aware of.


1. A market order is a taker unless:

  • It remains unfilled (due to price protection) and sits on the orderbook for longer than one auction

2. A limit order is a maker unless:

  • It crosses in the current auction AND it crosses at a price that is through the previous auction price 
  • Through the previous auction price means a buy that is higher than the previous auction or a sell that is lower than the previous auction price
  • It crosses in the current auction AND it crosses at a price that is equal to the previous auction price AND it is on the side (buy or sell) without any unfilled orders

Price Protection

In order to prevent prevent large slippage on the exchange, CoinList Pro employs price protections on its market and limit orders.


Price Protection of Market Orders


This is the maximum (buy market) and minimum (sell market) price that can be executed via a market order. If a market order has remaining unfilled quantity, it will effectively become a resting limit order at the maximum/minimum price.


  • Market buy limit protection price = best ask * (1.05)
  • Market sell limit protection price = best bid * (0.95)

Price Protection of Limit Orders


This is the maximum buy limit and minimum sell limit price that can be submitted via a limit order. There is no minimum limit on a buy limit price or maximum limit on a sell limit price.


  • Buy Limit Price Maximum: Reference Price *(1.05)
  • Sell Limit Price Minimum: Reference Price *(0.95)
  • Buy limit orders more than the Buy Limit Price Maximum and sell limit orders less than the Sell Limit Price Minimum will be rejected

If an order is a Stop Limit Order, the Reference Price is the Stop Price, otherwise it is chosen in the following order:


1. Last Trade Price

  • if the last auction did not have a fill, go to 2

2. Best bid if it is higher than, or best ask if it is lower than, the previous midpoint quote.
