Coinbase order entry on TT

Coinbase order entry on TT

On the TT® platform, you can submit orders for all Coinbase instruments using MD Trader or the Order Ticket.

MD Trader

When submitting orders for Coinbase instruments using MD Trader, consider the following:

  • Fractional order quantities can be entered in the order quantity and default default order quantity fields. Fractional working order quantities are also displayed in the Bids and Asks columns, position, and cancel buttons in the order entry panel.
  • The Net position field shows your total position (not your daily position).

    Note: Coinbase trading sessions are 24 hours. However, positions will reset at 6 PM CST (UTC - 5), and an SOD record will be created for the next 24 hour trading period.

  • Only working quantities and the amount bought or sold are shown in the Work column.
  • Clicking the net open position seeds the full position as the order quantity and not the truncated version if Quantity display decimal places is enabled in Preferences | Orders.
  • Market and Stop Market orders are submitted as quantities and not prices.

The following example shows submitting Coinbase orders with MD Trader.

Order Ticket

When submitting orders for Coinbase instruments using the Order Ticket, consider the following:

  • Order quantity button toggles in 1.0 digit increments. You can also enter manual fractional quantities up to eight decimal digits.
  • Fractional quantities are displayed at the inside market.
  • Market and Stop Market orders are submitted as quantities and not prices.
  • Native Coinbase order types are supported.

The following example shows submitting Coinbase orders with the Order Ticket.

For TT Crypto users, the order quantity buttons are in smaller increments as shown.
