How to view trade history (ledger)

Your trading history (sometimes called a Ledger) tracks all your trading activity on any connected exchange.

Go to the Trade History tab to find a log of your past trades, filterable by exchange, asset, and quote. This page shows a maximum of 200 trades, subject to limits imposed by the APIs of each exchange.

How to read the Trade History table

Your trades are described in the trades history table under the column categories in the following table. Each of the following column headers can be clicked to sort your trades history by that value in ascending or descending order:

Column Header

Description

Side

Direction of the trade — Buy or Sell

Date

Date that the trade was filled/executed

Exchange

Which exchange the trade took place on

Instrument

The currency pair of the trade (eg. BTC/USD)

Price

Price the trade executed at

Quantity

Amount of the asset (base currency) bought or sold

Total

Total cost of the trade measured in quote currency

Filter your past trades by exchange, asset, and quote.

Your trades can be filtered by exchange, the asset traded (base currency) and by the quote currency of the trading pair.

FYI: Trading pairs are formatted as BASE/QUOTE. For example: in the pair BTC/USD, the base currency is BTC and the quote currency is USD.

How to View Order and Trade ID

Clicking on any trade in the Trade History tab will open a window overlaying the page. This window contains the information found in the table above, as well as the specific Order ID and External ID for the trade.

The Order ID and External ID are identifiers given to your trades by the exchange itself. If you have a support issue with one of your trades, these ID's can help the exchange's support team process your request.
