Closing positions at market open

Guest Julia


Hi Everyone,

I am using an End of Day trading system, and wish to understand how I can set an order to close an open position when the market opens tomorrow without me needing to be online. I want to close my position, at the opening price regardless of if it goes up or down from the close. How can I do this?

Unfortunately this just isn't possible. As a side not, if you are using this function elsewhere or have coded an automatic trading system, please note that it may have significant risks. 

By analogy, imaging walking into an actual physical marketplace and saying "I will be willing to buy and sell XYZ irrespective of the price..." You would get eaten alive! Whilst there may be an option to do this OTC without reflecting in the market, it may also have the same negatives as above. 

You could always just set a hugely aggressive GTC limit order (e.g. market is at 100 and you set a limit sell for anything up to 120, i.e. 20% above it's current price which is highly likely to get filled.)

    • Investing in crypto could be challenging especially the Fear of Missing out Lambo. This mostly affect traders trading strategy and ideology. Predicting the right time to buy is always cumbersome and that is why many analyst advise DCA because it curtails FOMO and gives you a long-term crypto trading mentality. In crypto Dollar Cost Averaging involves investing the same amount of money in a target token at regular intervals over a certain period of time, regardless of price. This will help to control volatility on your portfolios and minimize FOMO For example when you decide to invest $100 on a token and invest $10 daily or weekly or monthly till you fulfilled you $100 target investment on the token irrespective of the price of the token. This strategy helps a crypto trader to build his portfolio over the long term thereby he/she is not bothered by short-term volatility in the broader markets. This strategy mostly favours low-budget traders in building a strong portfolio but the problem most normally encounter is exchange minimum trading amount. One analyst advised on how to mitigate this was to accumulate on exchange that has lower trading fees and later send to where you desire to hold. He also noted that some of this exchanges are good in listing good projects for you to be among the early birds. Do you think DCA is the best method to accumulate token and which exchange offers the lowest tradeable balance and trading fees?
