Step 1 - Trade Creation Method

Start by choosing your desired method to create the trade. Similarly to the methods offered in the Telegram bot, Cornix currently offers two methods to create a trade - Free text and Manual (called Guided in the Telegram bot).

Figure 2: Trade creation methods

The free text option will allow you to provide the trade details using a single message. In some cases, the free text method might be significantly faster than the manual one, especially when creating a trade with specific target prices as opposed to spreading targets with equal distanced between them in a price range For more information about the free text trade creation method visit this article.

To change the trade creation method, simply click on the desired method. Pressing on the Free Text input box will also change the method to the Free Text method. When Selecting the Free Text method, make sure to provide the full trade message according to the guidelines provided in the article mentioned above.

Figure 3: Change method selection by clicking on it

Step 2 - Choose symbol (applies only for Manual trade creation)

Start by choosing the symbol to use for the trade. Continue to select a symbol from the list or type in a symbol in the search box to search for your desired symbol:

Search_Symbol.png

Figure 4: Type in symbol name to search for it

Please note that you can search for the symbol by the coin name, by pair, or by full symbol name. When entering a symbol name, you can ignore the upper case and omit the separator between the coin name and pair name (so searching for "adabtc"or "ada btc" will still find ADA/BTC).

Step 3 - Choose account

Select the account to create the trade from your list of available accounts. Some of the accounts might be greyed out in cases where the symbol is not available for trading in the exchange that corresponds to that account.

Figure 5: Choose account

In some cases, you might get a warning when selecting an account that is not greyed out. This might happen when the available pair amount in the selected account is lower than the minimum you can create an order on in the exchange.

Step 4 - Choose Trade General Details

In this step you will be asked to provide the general trade details:

Figure 6: General info tab

To modify one of the parameters in this screen simply tap on the corresponding row. Below you will find a description of each of the different parameters you will find in this screen.

New Amount - By default, when this screen first opens the New Amount section will be opened. The Net Amount is the amount that will be used to create the trade's entry targets. The selected amount will be divided between the pending entry targets according to the amount percentages for each target.

By default, the New Amount initial default value will correspond to the default Amount per Trade parameter from the selected client's trading configuration. In some cases, the exact value from the configuration might correspond to a quantity that is invalid in the exchange. In those cases, the value will be modified slightly to make the corresponding quantity valid.

Figure 7: New Amount section, original amount percentage was modified

You will be able to change the trade's new amount either by entering the exact amount or by specifying a percentage of the client's available amount. To toggle between an exact amount and a percentage just tap on the corresponding value.

Figure 8: Tap the left or right value to switch between exact amount and percentage

Please remember to enter an amount between the minimum and maximum that is listed in the text below the slider.

Existing Amount - If you have existing coins from the trade's symbol, you will have the option to select an existing amount to use in the trade. The existing amount selected for the trade will be immediately divided between the pending take-profit targets. The selected existing amount will be displayed in the order page in a separate sub-section under the Entries section.

Step 4 - Select Order Details

On the orders page, you will be able to choose the order prices and amounts. By default, when you open the Orders tab some of the sections might be empty, depending on if the trade was created using the Free Text method and if the client's trading configuration included a default step.

Quick Setup

The quick setup functionality will allow you to quickly fill in entry and take-profit orders by selecting the number of targets, the prices zone and the strategy.

Figure 15: Click the lightning icon to access Quick Setup

The process for adding targets using Quick Setup is identical for both entry and take-profit targets, so for the purposes of this tutorial we will demonstrate quick setup for entry targets.

After clicking the Quick Setup button, the following screen will be loaded:

Quick_Setup.png

Figure 16: Quick Setup screen

On the top of the screen, you will be able to choose the strategy, number of targets and price range for the targets. On the bottom half of the screen, you will see a preview of what the targets will look like before applying them to the actual trade.

Entry/Take-Profit Strategy - This parameter will let you choose the strategy that will be used to create the entry or take-profit targets. For more information about strategies, visit the following links:

By default, the strategy will be selected based on the client configuration.

Number of Targets - This parameter will let you choose the number of targets that will be created in the selected price range.

Price Range - This parameter will define the price range for the targets. When choosing a price range, the selected number of targets will be spread in the price range such that one target will be placed at the top of the price range, one target will be placed at the bottom of the price range, and the rest of will be spread in the price range with equal distances between them.

The app currently offers two method to insert a price range. The first one can be accessed by clicking either the left (minimum) or right (maximum) values in the price range. Clicking these values will open a keyboard which will allow you to manually input a price.

Step 5 - Resolve Issues

If the trade is invalid, you will see a warning on the bottom of the screen that there are issues that need to be resolved before the trade can be created. Proceed to click the Show Issues button to view the current list of warning that need to be resolved.

Click_Show_Issues.png

Figure 28: Click Show Issues button to display warnings

In the above example, the sum of the Entry targets does not sum to 100% and as you can see a warning is displayed that 1 unresolved issue is pending. After clicking the Show Issues button in this example, the warning will be displayed.

Entries_Resolve_Show.png

Figure 29: Example of entries issues

Since the issue where the sum of the targets does not equal 100% is very common, we added a quick way to resolve the issue for your convenience. Clicking the resolve button for this issue will redistribute the ratios according to the original ratio between the targets such that the sum of targets will be 100% and valid. After clicking the resolve button and confirming the change, the trade in the above example will look as follows:

Post_Resolve.png

Figure 30: Trade after resolving ratio issue

As you can see, the entry target ratios were modified so their sum now equals 100%. In addition, the ratio between the targets was maintained with the second entry target twice as big as the first entry target.

Step 5 - Confirm Trade

Once you're done filling in all the trade details and solve all the warnings, the Confirm button should be visible on the bottom of the screen.
