Explanation and how to use Default Trading Market, Default Exchange, & Default Trading Pair
To set or change any of the defaults, use the
There are currently 2 trading markets,
crypto, and by default a users default trading market is set to
stocks. The default market setting is what informs the bot whether submitted trades are on crypto or stock markets. When the default market is stocks, submitting crypto trades requires a complete format (I.e. BTO BTC/USDT @ CMP) where a
/separator and the trading pair ticker need to be specified- or if using a Default Trading Pair when submitting then
.Xcan be used (I.e. BTO BTC.X @ CMP) in replace of the
/separator and pair ticker.
When attempting to trade stocks/options while the default market is set to crypto, a
-Ssyntax attached to the ticker is required. I.e. BTO
AAPL-S @ cmpWhen submitting options trades, the
-Ssyntax is not required.
Submitting crypto trades can still be allowed when the default market is set to
stocks. But the trading pair ticker or
.Xsyntax for the default pair will be required.

The default trading pair allows submitted trades to not require a
/separator and pair ticker to be specified. When a separator and pair ticker are not specified, the default trading pair is used.
The trading pair is the second ticker, or the asset being traded with the main crypto. I.e. BTC/USDT - where USDT is the pair.
