Lot size, Price Level, Expiry , Stop and Limit

Hi, I am a newbie trying to place an order under "Order" tab
1) If I want to risk 0.5% of my 200,000 SGD account on this one trade, what do I enter under the " Size USD($) " column?   (My account is in SGD, while the size column in is USD)
2) What is the "price level" column about?
3) What is expiry "good till canceled" and "good till date" ?
3) If these are my buy entry and long exit rules respectively: 

" Buy entry: Place a stop order 10 ticks above the two-day high. This will help ensure

buying with the new trend and help to avoid false signals. Keep order until filled or as

long as the buy alert is still valid. 

Long exit: Place a stop equal to the 20-day EMA. Continue to update this stop daily to

form a trailing stop. "


What should I do to enter this information(both the stop order 10 ticks above the 2 day high and the trailing stop equal to the 20-day EMA) into the system and what do I fill in under "Stop" and "Limit"?


Thanks alot.

0.5% of 200,000 is 1000 so your stop loss on the trade can't be more than $1000 SGD so the 'size' x stop loss in points must be adjusted to come in under $1000. The order ticket auto calculates this, the size of the stop loss should be fixed as per your trade plan so try different trade sizes so that the risk amount is less than 1000 SGD on the trade.

The Price Level is the price you want to enter the trade (Place a stop order 10 ticks above the two-day high), the platform knows what type of order it is by where you place the entry level.

The Expiry is when an unfilled order gets cancelled.

The Stop is the stop loss ( Place a stop equal to the 20-day EMA) you will need to read off the level and fill in on the order ticket and then adjust manually once the order gets filled. The Limit is the price level you want to take profit and close the trade (can be left blank).

Hope this helps.

    • Sadly insecurity is still one of the setbacks of crypto adoption. I reckon if all exchanges exhibit this concerted effort and commitment towards preserving the security of users' funds, the industry will be made more conducive and crypto adoption will be fast-tracked.
    • Actually I presume it should be $400M+ by now cos it's one Exchange next to Binance that prioritize their users funds safety imho.
    • This post is majorly for new crypto enthusiasts looking for good exchange to explore however it is also beneficial to those who already have an exchange they are using. Coinmarketcap and Coingecko is one place new users can explore to find out about the ranking of crypto exchanges however one must do other research not to base his/her judgement only on the position the crypto exchange occupies on this platforms. Other factors like user protection fund, proof of reserve and regulatory compliance must be considered before choosing a CEX especially with the evolving regulatory landscape from different countries which have forced some exchanges out of some countries. From the point listed above, Binance and Bitget take the industry lead in protection fund with $1b and $401m respectively and have verifiable Proof of reserve whose public address can be seen and viewed by their users but when it comes to regulatory compliance, Bitget is number 1 as the exchange is operating in most countries where other top cex are not operational. The visit to the respective cex website and mobile app also indicate users interest and popularity of the exchanges. Below is the ranking of top crypto exchanges by weekly visit. The figure below is only for website visit excluding mobile app. It is important to note that this exchanges were not founded the same year hence it's understandable to see clear difference in the number of website visit. HTX and Gateio were founded in 2013, 10 years in the industry. Kucoin, Binance and OKX were founded in 2017 and MEXC, Bitget and Bybit were founded in 2018. The above exchange are all good exchanges for new users to explore. Which of these crypto exchange do you use and why do you choose it over others?
