Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What are the differences between spot trading and contracts trading?
Trading spot is a bit different than contracts trading, as you do actually need to own the underlying asset. Crypto spot trading requires traders to purchase a crypto, such as Bitcoin, and hold it until the value increases, or use it to buy other altcoins that they think may rise in value.
In the crypto derivatives market, investors do not own the actual crypto. Rather, they trade based on speculation of the crypto market price. Traders can choose to go long if they expect the value of the asset to rise, or they can go short if the value of the asset is expected to fall.
All transactions are done on contract, so there is no need to purchase or sell any actual assets.
What is Maker/Taker?
Traders preset the quantity and order price and place the order into the order book. The order waits in the order book to be matched, thus increasing the market depth. This is known as a maker, which provides liquidity for other traders.
A taker occurs when an order is executed instantly against an existing order in the order book, thus decreasing the market depth.
What is the Bybit spot trading fee?
What are Market Order, Limit Order and Conditional Order?
Bybit provides three different order types — Market Order, Limit Order, and Conditional Order — to meet the various needs of traders.
|Order Type||Definition||Executed Price||Quantity Specification|
|Market Order||Traders are able to set the order quantity, but not the order price. The order will be filled immediately at the best available price in the order book.||Filled at the best available price.||— Base currency (USDT) for Buy Order
— Quote currency for Sell Order
|Limit Order||Traders are able to set both the order quantity and order price. When the last traded price reaches the set order limit price, the order will be executed.||Filled at the limit price or best available price.||— Quote currency for Buy and Sell Order|
|Conditional Order||Once the last traded price meets the preset trigger price, a conditional market and conditional taker limit order will be filled immediately, while a conditional maker limit order will be submitted to the order book once triggered to be filled pending execution.||Filled at the limit price or best available price.||— Base currency (USDT) for Market Buy Order
— Quote currency for Limit Buy Order and Market/Limit Sell Order
Why cant I enter the quantity of cryptocurrency that I wish to purchase when using Market Buy Orders?
Market Buy Orders are filled with the best available price in the order book. It’s more accurate for traders to fill in the amount of assets (USDT) they wish to use to purchase the cryptocurrency, instead of the amount of cryptocurrency to purchase.
