We released a brand new web trading experience on July 1st. Since then, we've added some new functionalities and moved some things around, so here's an overview to guide you through the changes. We recommend getting comfortable with the new exchange, because after October 14th this will be the permanent layout.
All available markets
At the top of the new exchange page there is a green banner that shows which market pair you are currently viewing, along with some information on the Last Price, 24h change, 24h low, 24h high, and Volume. On the left side of this banner, you can click on the trading pair to reveal a list of all available markets categorized by the trading pair: TRX, BTC, USD, ALTS, and INNOV. When selecting a new pair, you can also arrange them by Volume or Balance. When you have a pair selected, you'll see there is an order box below where you can place an order with an order type, price and amount of your choosing.
If you hover on a market row you will see a star to the left of the pair. Click the star to add the pair to the list of your favorites! You can see your list of favorite markets by clicking the 'Star' in the top left next to the base markets, or by navigating to the 'Favorites' section at the bottom right of the web page. Your favorites are now stored with your account so you can view them across devices.
To the right of the markets, and the left of the charts, you'll see our new and improved order book. You have the ability to change whether it displays buy orders, sell orders, or both by toggling the green/red lines on the top. You can also change how the order book is grouped by choosing between 0, 1, 2, 4, 6, and 8 decimal places. Lastly, you can hover your cursor on either book to reveal the Avg Price, Sum BTC and Sum USDT.
On the right side of the exchange page it's difficult to miss our charts! The default view is the Price Chart with candlesticks indicating price change over time. As always, you have the ability to toggle the timing and style of the candlesticks and choose from the numerous indicators we have available to maximize your trading abilities. You can also click the expanding arrows in the top-right to switch to a full screen trading experience. In the top left, you can also switch to view the Depth Chart, which will show you the order book depth of the market you're viewing.
Market Trades/My Trades
You can see market trade history by clicking "Market Trades" below the left side of the charts. This will show you all of the latest trades that have executed within the market you are viewing. You can click "My Trades" to view all of the trades you have placed within that market. In order to see your trade history for all trading pairs, you have to navigate to your Activity tab.
You can see a list of your Open Orders below the right side of the charts. You have the option of viewing all of your open orders across markets, or only the specific market you’re viewing by toggling on the “Hide other pairs” option. Within this section, you can also view a list of your favorite markets by clicking 'Favorites'.
You can chat with other traders and our moderators in our legendary crypto chat-room. It is a gathering place for people with a passion for crypto and a love for Poloniex. Although the Trollbox is located in the bottom right of the page, you can expand it to a separate window by clicking the box on the top of it. You also have the ability to edit the text size for your readability.
The 'Notices' section is no longer right on the exchange page, but it's not too far away. If you navigate to the top right of the web-page, to the right of "Settings" you'll see a text box. Toggle that box to expand our new Notices section, where you can find all of the news you need to stay up to date on our listings, product, platform and more.
When we first launched, you were only able to view the new exchange from the desktop site, but we've been hard at work making improvements on our mobile apps as well. On the mobile apps, you can easily deposit, withdrawal, and transfer from your wallet, trade on Futures, and set alerts.
We want your feedback!
If you have feedback on the new exchange design, we’d love to hear from you! You can contact us by navigating to the bottom of the page and clicking “Tell us what you think”. This will bring you to a Google Form where you can submit your much-valued feedback.
