The Dashboard is the heart of your Hopper. You will spend most of your time checking the Dashboard. In this documentation tab, we'll teach you how to "read" your Hopper, import/synchronize positions, and much more.
Your Dashboard shows a summary of what your Hopper is doing. In the center, which is the most important, are the positions. These are the bits of crypto that your Hopper has bought and is currently tracking. On the right, also important, is where your profits are tracked.
The dashboard consists of many widgets, which you can close and reopen. If you miss a widget, click the eye icon in the top right of your Dashboard. A popup will appear where you can choose to open/close widgets.
You will also see the subscription that's assigned to this Hopper and if you're connected to the internet.
If you look a little bit more to the top, you'll see the switch for the "Advanced View", which we recommend checking out, how many Cryptohopper+ XP you have, you can chat in our internal community, check your profile and switch to Dark Mode (brilliant for those night walkers who trade until the late hours).
Your position list is something unique about Cryptohoper and a brilliant way to keep track of your investments. Regular exchanges don't track your profits as Cryptohopper does. It's an essential feature if you want to become a successful trader.
Click the "info" button to get information about why your Hopper has bought an asset and the current Take Profit, Stop-Loss, DCA and Trailing Stop-Loss settings of that position.
If you want to perform a specific action on one or more positions, use the bulk actions dropdown for an excellent overview of your actions. You can smoothly perform actions with multiple positions at once. If you want to sell several positions as fast as possible, you can even toggle the "Market Orders" button. This will sell much quicker than a regular limit order but is often also more expensive.
On the right is shown how much profits/losses you've made. There are two ways of tracking your profits/losses.
- The regular profit calculator. Just fill in your start balance (the amount you had when you started trading) by clicking the small "Edit" button under it, and your profits will be tracked accurately. We recommend only using this option!
- For those who also trade manually on the same exchange account out of Cryptohopper (not recommended), is the "User Invested/Returns" part. This will try to calculate how much profits/losses you've made based on your sells, instead of a difference in balance. Small mistakes can make this calculator incorrect, so we do not recommend this one.
Trade manually and check your past trades. Your full trade history can be found in the Trade History on the menu on the right.
We recommend using the Advanced View for manual trading, but it�s here if you need to access it quickly.
Synchronize In the assets section, you can find all of the assets you currently own on your exchange. More importantly, you can synchronize them into your Hopper. Click on synchronize to get started!
In the synchronize menu, you can synchronize positions that you have open on your exchange and not in your Hopper. Thus if you synchronize your assets, your Hopper will convert your holdings into a position. Your Hopper will use the current price as the buy price; thus, it will convert your holding into an open position at 0%. If you've bought the asset for another price and want a correct profit calculation, make sure to fill in the right buying price in the "rate" section.
To synchronize a coin, simply enable sync on your desired coins and then click "synchronize selected". You will then be able to see it as an open position in your Hopper, which you can adjust its take profit, stop loss, trailing stop loss, and DCA, as a regular order. If you do not change anything, then the new position will be sold based on your Hopper's baseconfig, such as your take profit, stop loss, trailing stop loss, strategy, or signals.
You can use the refresh button to reset the rate of the coins at the current market rate.
If you click on sell, the Hopper will open up a limit sell order for you.
If you would like to try out this feature, without risking your hard-earned money, you can try it out in paper trading. Simply deposit some coins via the paper trading deposit, and you will be able to synchronize them just like the real coins.
Please note that dust positions, which are positions smaller than the minimum trade amount of the exchange, can't be synced.
Auto-sync The auto-sync option will synchronize new assets automatically and import them. This feature allows you to exchange them automatically with the help of profit-making tools. This feature is especially useful for miners or merchants who accept crypto, as they can systematically profit from incoming assets.
Warning: Do not use the auto-sync feature if you have multiple hoppers running on your exchange account (the same goes for paper trading).
At the bottom is a crucial part. The Hopper output. This is the part where your Hopper communicates with you. If you ask yourself why your Hopper hasn't bought assets, this is the first place to look!
Traders often forget to make sure that they have enough funds in the base currency or have conflicting configurations and sometimes, your exchange may even be down. Your Hopper output will tell you everything you need to know. If you don't know what a particular error means, check the documentation, the question base or ask our chat support staff.
Connect as many exchange accounts to Cryptohopper as you'd like for free with our Pioneer package. Manage them manually and have a brilliant overview of your complete portfolio from Cryptohopper.
We recommend checking out the Advanced View. It may sound not very easy, but it offers a clear cockpit view that�s ideal for any level crypto trader.
