How do I use the Exchange view (Order types, Chart and Markets) on the Bitpanda Global Exchange?

The Exchange view is the main page of the Bitpanda Global Exchange. It is fully responsive and adapts automatically to any screen size. On the Exchange view you can:

Top navigation

At all times, you can click on the Bitpanda Global Exchange logo at the top left to directly jump to the Exchange view, no matter the page you are on.

Tip: You can display your Estimated account value in BTC or EUR, or hide it altogether, by simply clicking on it.

Order types

In the Order section on the left you will find the different order types:

  • Market 
  • Limit
  • Stop limit

Market order

A market order is the quickest and easiest order type. It is meant to be executed instantly at the current average market price. Market orders are always "takers", which means they are taking away liquidity from the order book as they are matched with existing limit orders.

If you want to get in or out of a trade quickly, then you might want to use this order type.

Limit order

A limit order is not meant to be executed instantly, but is used to put an order in the order book that executes at your specified Limit price (or better price).

For example, if the price for PAN/EUR is currently at 0.09 EUR and you place a limit buy order for a limit price of 0.07 EUR, then your order is meant to execute at the price of 0.07 EUR as soon as there are matching bids at this price.

However, if the price for PAN/EUR is currently at 0.09 EUR and you place a limit buy order for a limit price of 0.13 EUR, then it will act as a market order at first and will buy up (better price) everything until it reaches your specified limit price (taker fee). If the amount of the order is bigger than what was available in the order book, the remaining amount will now act as an open limit buy order (and hence pay a maker fee).

Note: When placing a limit order, understand that if there are no or not enough matching bids for your order then it will not execute or only execute partially.

If you want to place an order that does not get executed immediately, to buy at a lower price than the market price or to sell at a higher price than the market price, you might want to use this order type.

Stop limit order

A stop limit order is an advanced order type. It is not executed instantly, but is only Active at first. When the specified Stop price is reached (or crossed) the order is then Triggered and put in the order book, and once placed in the order book, acts as a normal limit order.

For example, for a sell order with these settings (see screenshot below) the following will happen. If the price of BTC reaches or crosses 9000 EUR (Stop price), an order to sell 1 BTC (Amount) at a price of 8900 EUR (Limit price) will be placed in the order book.

The placed order then acts like a normal limit order and is meant to execute at your specified Limit price.

Note: As with limit orders, when placing a stop limit order, understand that if there are no or not enough matching bids for your order then it will not execute or only execute partially.

If you want to set a buy or sell limit in the order book that would otherwise not be possible, because your order would be matched immediately, for example to lock in potential profits or limit your potential losses, you might want to use this order type.

Tip: If you are uncomfortable using more advanced order types, you may want to research this topic further before trading on the Bitpanda Global Exchange. In the meantime, you can also continue to use our Bitpanda Platform.
