Here are the basics of filling an order from the order book, placing a limit order and placing a market order.


At the top of the order handler, above the token pair you are on, there is a drop down to change marketplaces. At the moment there are two marketplaces, WETH and DAI. Select which one you would like to use.



 


Choose what token to trade


Below the marketplace selection, there is a dropdown to choose the token you wish to buy or sell. Scroll through the drop down select the token.



You can also type directly in the token field to search by token name or symbol.

The single fill option is no longer available on Radar. Please use the market order option in order to fill the best available order(s) on the order book.

 


Limit Order


In the order handler make sure you are on the Limit Order tab.



Select Buy or Sell 


Selecting buy will mean you are buying the token you have selected and placing the order on the bottom half of the book.


Selecting sell will mean you are selling the token you have selected and placing the order on the top half of the book.


Enter an amount


In the "Amount" field enter how much you would like to buy or sell.


Enter a price


Enter a price you would like to buy or sell your tokens at. If you don't know what the price should be, look at the price of the order closest to the "spread." Be sure to check that this price is correct by looking at the token on a site like coinmarketcap

Market Order


In the order handler make sure you are on the Market Order tab.



Selecting buy will mean you are buying the token you have selected. Selecting sell will mean you are selling the token you have selected.


A market order is a buy or sell order to be executed immediately at current market prices. With this order type the focus is on the number of tokens bought or sold and does not allow the user to select the price. Think of it in terms of "I want as many of {X token} I can get for the amount of {Y token} that I'm holding."


Enter an amount



In the "Amount" field enter how many tokens you would like to buy or sell. Because this is a market order you can enter any amount here up to the amount available on the order book. 


A market order can fill more than one order on the order book. Orders that you will fill will be highlighted after you enter an amount.



After entering an amount make sure you are okay with the price you are paying.



Note that the USD amount is a reference and the actual total is only in  the tokens selected.


Confirm your order


Click the buy or sell button on the bottom of the order handler after double checking the cost of your order. 


Confirm your transaction



Confirm your transaction in MetaMask or on your Ledger. Make sure to double check your transaction cost.
