ORDER BOOK

Order Book – the main mechanism of the stock exchange. This is a table of limit Orders (applications) for buying and selling cryptocurrency at the stock exchange. Every Order contains the quantity of a cryptocurrency and its price (quotation). For the purpose of convenience, the Order Book is divided into two main parts: Buy Orders and Sell Orders. Sorting of Orders is done by the price and is ascending in the Sell Orders, while in Buy Orders it is descending.


Order Book

List of fields:

  • AMOUNT - quantity of cryptocurrency in the Order in the Order Book.
  • PRICE - price (quotation) of cryptocurrency in the Order in the Order Book.
  • COST - cost of the Order in the Order Book.

The Order Book allows assessing offer and demand on the market at the current moment of time. In technical analysis, the order book is used for defining "the line of the least resistance" that the cryptocurrency follows. If Orders disappear fast, the price is considered to possibly follow that direction soon.

All orders in the Order Book are de-identified and do not stand out by any means. Contents of the Order Book is public information, yet it is available to the registered users of eXion.IO only. It is available both through the web interface of the stock exchange and via the Private API. For each trade pair, separate Order Book is formed.


OPEN POSITIONS AND DEALS

Every Order created by a user is treated as an open position for buying or selling cryptocurrency. All created orders get into the Order Book, where they cannot be distinguished from other orders. This is why users should control the list of their open positions in the Order Book themselves.

All open positions of a user on a certain trade pair are formed into the ORDERS SUMMARY table. Sorting of orders is done by the price and has got an ascending character.


Orders Summary

List of fields:

  • DATE - date of opening the position (time of order creation).
  • AMOUNT - initial quantity of cryptocurrency in the Order when it was created.
  • BALANCE - current quantity of cryptocurrency in the Order at the moment.
  • PRICE - price (quotation) of the open position.
  • COST - cost of the open position based on the current quantity of cryptocurrency in the Order.
  • TYPE - type of open position: buying or selling cryptocurrency.
  • CANCEL - the button for cancelling the open position. When pressing on the "Х" pictogram next to the open position it will be cancelled and the Order will become deleted from the Order Book. Deposited cost of the Order based on the current quantity will be returned to the user’s account for the Buy Order. Otherwise the deposited current quantity will be returned to the user’s account for the Sell Order.

Exchange deal – agreement between the participants of the stock exchange trade in terms of buying or selling cryptocurrency during the exchange cryptocurrency trading. Making exchange deals at eXion.IO is done in the automatic mode based on the Order Book. In case two contrary Orders meet the conditions of one another in terms of price, a deal is made on their basis. The quantity of cryptocurrency in the deal is defined by the minimum quantity from the two contrary Orders participating in the deal. The stock exchange acts as a backer for the deal obligations fulfillment.

Fulfillment of obligations on all deals at the eXion.IO exchange takes place almost immediately. Parties receive to their accounts the whole amount from the deal with the transaction fee (commission) deducted. For every party, individual commission is calculated depending on the Order having participated in the deal. Transaction fee is withheld in the currency and from the funds that settle to the user’s account as a result of one’s position closed in a deal. Rounding policy and the minimum fee are described in chapters Selling Cryptocurrency and Buying Cryptocurrency in the description of the Transaction Fee (FEE).

While the minimum quantity is taken from the two contrary Orders when a deal is made, the open position can be closed partially. For the remaining quantity, a new Order is formed with the same parameters: type (TYPE), remaining (current) quantity (Qty) and price (Price). In fact, out of an open position only that quantity of cryptocurrency is closed that participated in the deal. The remaining quantity continues forming an open position with the same parameters. This is clearly seen in the difference between the AMOUNT and BALANCE fields in the ORDERS SUMMARY table.
