The Trades page in the Liquidity Hub UI provides the ability to create new trades and view information about completed trades.
If you are an Administrator in Liquidity Hub (check your permissions), you can create new trades from the Trades page. Creating a new trade is a two-step process: request a quote for a trading pair, then review and accept the quoted price. Accepting the quote creates a new trade.
To successfully request a quote, you must :
- Select the pair of assets you are trading. One of the assets in the pair is a digital asset, and the other is fiat.
- Specify the quantity of one asset in the trading pair.
- Specify whether you want to get a quote to buy or sell the first asset in the pair.
For example, if you want to sell two BTC and receive USD, the trading pair is BTC/USD. Specify the BTC amount as
2, and select the sell option as the quote type.
After reviewing the quote, select Accept quote if you are satisfied with the quoted price. You must accept the quote within the quote expiration time displayed on the screen. If the current quote expires, select New quote to request a new quote.
When you accept the quote, the quantity of the asset you are selling in the trade will be designated as reserved balance. This balance reflects the quantity of the asset reserved for sale which cannot be used to make another trade.
Note that by accepting the quote, you agree to pay the price quoted in accordance with your Liquidity Hub Agreement and any other applicable fees set forth in your Agreement.
Create trades using the API
In addition to creating trades in the UI, you can also create trades using Liquidity Hub API endpoints. For more information on creating trades using the API, see Quick start guide.
The trade list columns provide additional information about each trade. Use this information for regular recordkeeping and reconciliation of trading activity.
The most recent trades are listed first.
|Date||The date and time when the trade was completed. Specified in UTC.|
|Pair||The trading pair representing the assets traded.|
|Trade ID||The unique ID that identifies the trade.|
|Quantity||The quantity of the first asset in the trading pair bought or sold in the trade.
For example, in a BTC/USD trading pair this field is the quantity of BTC bought or sold in the trade.
|Price||The cost of buying or selling one unit of the first asset in the trading pair expressed in units of the second asset.
For example, in a BTC/USD trade where you bought BTC, the price represents the amount of USD you sold per unit of BTC.
|Net Amount||The quantity of the second asset in the trading pair that you bought or sold in the trade.
For example, in a BTC/USD trade where you bought BTC, the amount is the total quantity of USD you sold in the trade.
