Trading with your Broker is very straight forward, simply email them instructions on which token(s) you'd like to buy, sell, or swap and they will send you a confirmation once the order is processed.

To ensure there are no delays executing your order, be sure to reference the email sent to you after your initial phone call or email exchange with your Broker.

With your Broker you can place the following types of trades. In our provided examples we talk to Buy orders (Fiat ➡️ Token), but these could also be Sell (Token ➡️ Fiat) or Swap (Token ➡️ Token) orders too.

  • Single line Market / Spot orders

    • eg; sell AUD, buy BTC

  • Single line Target / Limit orders
