Have you ever wondered how the trade price of cryptocurrencies and digital assets is determined on One Trading? In this article, we will explain the process and shed light on some important concepts.
Price Discovery: The price of a particular cryptocurrency or digital asset on One Trading is determined through buy and sell orders in the order book. Let's say you want to sell an asset and you set a specific price through an order in the order book. If another user is willing to buy the asset at the price you set, then both of you have effectively defined the price of that asset. This process is known as "price discovery." It is through the collective actions of traders like yourself that the trade price is established.
Understanding the Spread: One key concept to grasp is the spread, which refers to the difference between the lowest ask price (sell order) and the highest bid price (buy order). Imagine a scenario where there are only two users in a market: you and another user. If you set a price for selling your asset, but the other user is only willing to buy it at a lower price, the difference between your asking price and the other user's bid price is known as the spread. It's important to note that in a real market, there are many participants, and the spread represents the difference between the overall lowest ask price and the highest bid price at any given moment.
In conclusion, the trade price on One Trading is determined through the collective actions of buyers and sellers in the order book. The spread, which represents the difference between the lowest ask price and the highest bid price, influences the cost and efficiency of executing trades.
