How to open crypto positions
Opening triggers; BTO is used to open long STO is used to open short
There are many ways to open crypto positions, this documentation will go over the most basic way using the full format. Formats for submitting crypto trades can be shorter & more effecient by utilizing the Defaultssettings.

Opening Long

BTO <ticker>/<pair> @ <price> [exchange] I.e. BTO BTC/USDT @ 26952 binance
To open a long crypto position, use the trigger BTO followed by the ticker/pair (I.e. BTC/USDT), then the symbol @ before the price. By default on new accounts, the crypto exchange is set to Binance and if an exchange name is not specified the bot will log the trade for the Binance exchange. The default exchange, among other (market, pair) defaults, can be changed. See Defaultsfor more info.
Example of opening a long position for BTC/USDT at the price of $27154.580 on Binance

Opening Short

STO <ticker>/pair @ <price> [exchange] I.e. STO BTC/USDT @ 26951 binance
To open a short crypto position, use the trigger STO followed by the ticker/pair (I.e. BTC/USDT), then the symbol @ before the price. By default on new accounts, the crypto exchange is set to Binance and if an exchange name is not specified the bot will log the trade for the Binance exchange. The default exchange, among other (market, pair) defaults, can be changed. See Defaultsfor more info.

Final Notes: - Do not use $ with tickers. - Submit using a specified price, or use CMP or M for submitting at the current market price. - Multiple trades can be submitted in a single message by using 3 back ticks (```) before and after the whole message.
