Orders and positions

When your Hopper buys a certain amount of a currency, a position is created. You will be able to see how much percent profit/loss a position has made, when it was bought and under which circumstances it was bought. 

When your Hopper wants to buy a new position, it will create a limit order on your exchange. When this order is filled, a position is created and placed in your 'Open Positions' list. You're able to cancel orders that are open here.

It happens relatively often that buys are triggered but the orders fail eventually because of drastic price changes or other reasons. The output log mentions that it was unable to place the buy, and why.

Open Positions Board

The open positions board can give a lot of information regarding the open positions you currently have, it allows you to see what currency you are having a position in, the amount you have, at what rate you have bought the position, the current rating and the amount of base currency you put in the position.

Currency

Here you can see what kind of currency you have a position in, and sort them alphabetically, which is especially handy if you have multiple open positions. It can be quite confusing, seeing so much open positions. This way you can easily sort your open assets

Amount

Here you can see the amount of the currency that is in your position, 0.01 BTC for example.

Rate

Here you can see at what rate against your base currency the asset was bought.

Current rate

Here you can see the rate at which your asset is being sold on the exchange. It also shows wether you make a profit by selling the asset or not.

Cost

Here you can how much you spent on the position. note that this is always calculated in your base currency. If you decide to change base currency, all your open positions 

Cancel

The name says it all! This option allows you to cancel your position. WARNING, canceling your position means that you will have to re-sync you asset. The hopper will then create a position using the current rate as normal rate. Resulting in a wrong percentage profit.

Hold positions

You can hold positions and make sure they are not being sold by selecting hold position in the info box of the open position. If you want to hold or unhold multiple positions: select all positions you want to hold/unhold and click on the bulk actions button. Select hold positions/unhold positions and confirm the action. The selected positions will no be holded or not.

Note: Positions will not split or merge when they are in 'hold'

Split and merge positions

You can split and merge positions in your dashboard. To split a position: select a position, click on the bulk actions button and select split positions. Your positions will now be split in 2. If you want to merge positions of the same coin, select them and select merge positions in the bulk actions menu. The average price is then calculated and the positions are being merged.

Note: Positions will not split or merge when they are in 'hold', or when they are in an active sell order.

Create DCA order

With the feature Create DCA order in the bulk menu, you can create a DCA order for the selected positions. DCA stands for Dollar Cost Averaging (Martingale). When selected the hopper will create a new order for the double amount of the total selected. After the DCA order completes, the selected positions will be merged and a new weighted average price is calculated.
