The trade history can give a lot of insights into whether your strategy functions well, your signaler sends profitable signals, or to check your TradingView Alerts trades. However, there are some things you should keep in mind when checking your trades.
Search The first option that is shown when clicking on Trade history is the search bar. Search for specific trades in the past or check all your trades of a specific coin.
Advanced Search On the right side of the search bar, the Advanced search is shown. The Advanced search allows checking for only sells or only buys and enables you to check trades of a specific time frame.
Export Many traders prefer to do some analysis themselves. Cryptohopper gives you the option to export your trades in Excel, CSV, or PDF. Quickly analyze your trading results as the Buy Order ID and Sell Order ID are shown. Don't you see your trade history? Please check the time frame of the trade history you want to download.
Currency The currency column tells you which coins you have traded. If you have many trades, you can focus on the currencies that deliver the highest or lowest trading results.
Trading Pair On Cryptohopper, you always trade from 1 Base currency. The most used Base currencies are BTC and USDT. We recommend new users to use stable coins (USDT, USD, EUR) first as Base currency because it is easier to distinguish how much profit you made compared to the value of the Base currency.
Type The type shows you whether the order was a buy or sell. When using the shorting feature, it will mention Short as well. Additional information about Short trades and how the read the results will be explained further below.
Date The date shows at what moment the buy or sell took place. You could use this information to check your Hopper output and find out what happened exactly with the trade. Checking the Hopper output is an excellent tool for troubleshooting as it always shows the reason the Hopper is or isn't opening/closing a position. The Hopper output can be found on the Regular View and Advanced view of the Dashboard.
Amount The amount shows you how much of the specific currency has been bought or sold. The buy amounts can be determined in the base config. If you see positions being opened that are smaller than what you have configured, tick the box "Force minimum buy amount" in the Base config under "Coins and amounts".
Would you like to use the same buy amount for every position? Move the "Percentage buy amount" to the left, to 0. Next, you can determine a "Minimum BTC amount per order", these amounts will now be used when a new position gets opened.
Rate The rate shows you how much you have paid in your Base currency per coin of the specific currency. As mentioned earlier, when using a stable coin it could be easier to check the differences in buy/sell rates for the same currency.
Fee The fee shows how much you paid in your base currency for the trade. Many exchanges, including KuCoin (KuCoin Shares, KCS), OKEx (OK Blockchain Foundation, OKB), and Binance (Binance Chain, BNB) have additional options to save money on the Maker and Taker fee when using or holding their token. Other exchanges, such as HitBTC, KuCoin, and Coinbase Pro have Tiered fee systems, meaning that the more you trade, the more you will save on trading fees. More information about the fees of all exchanges can be found on this page, click on an exchange you would like to know more about and click on "Fees" in the menu on the left. The fees will be added to the Trade history with a small delay compared to the other details of the trade. The hopper first has to receive all information as it could be that your order has been partially filled. The average of all partial fills will result in the trading fees shown in the Hoppers' Trade history.
Total The total shows you how much you have paid in total: Rate * Amount = Total
The total trade amounts can always be confirmed by checking the trade history on the exchange itself.
Result The result shows your profit or loss of a trade. It is calculated: ( Sell amount * sell rate ) / ( Buy amount * buy rate ) = Result.
When using Shorting, the percentage shown when opening (buying) a new position shows how much you saved by buying back the same amount of the currency. Shorting on Cryptohopper is more like a buyback/reclamation feature. You are not making a profit on these trades, but it tells you how much cheaper you bought back the same amount.
In the example below, you can see the sell trade had a lower rate compared to the first buy moment. This is the first 0.32% loss shown in trade history. The short position was manually closed (bought back) at a higher rate than the last sell position, meaning that there is an additional loss of 0.27%. The total loss made in this short position totals -0.59%. The amount shown is still the same compared to the beginning. Therefore, you could say that 0.59% more has been paid for the same amount of ETH.
Trigger The Trigger section in Trade History tells you what caused Hopper to buy or sell a position. This information will help you to determine what sell triggers resulted in profits or losses. Many triggers could be shown, including Trailing Stop-Loss, TradingView, Cryptohopper App, Profit, Manual Buy, Manual Sell, Stop-Loss, Signallers (also mentions which signaller), and more.
The Trigger section in Trade history should not be confused with the feature Triggers that can be found in the Base config.
Did you expect another sell trigger for your sell trades? Please check the "Configuring your Hopper" documentation and check "Triggers".
View When you click on "View" in the last column, you can see the details of both your buy and sell order. For buy orders, the information includes Amount, Cost, Fee, Market, Sell Order ID, Order ID on the exchange, Order Rate, Buy Trigger, and the Order Date.
Many traders find it essential to check the Technical Indicator values of the moment the buy order was placed. This information is visible by clicking on "TA" shown under the Trade ID.
In the buy order shown below, you see that only RSI was used to open a position. The indicator values at the time the buy or sell order was placed, is shown on top. The minimum requirements to signal a buy or sell are shown at the bottom. Keep in mind that Cryptohopper gets its data for all indicator values from Cryptohopper's Strategy Designer. These results could slightly differ from TradingView's values. Additionally, some indicators are moving all the time. Therefore, it could be that you see in the Charts of a specific trading pair that your required values haven't been met, while they have.
Remove Trade History Can your trading history be removed? No. If you would like to start with an empty trade history, you could save your existing Hopper template and load it into a new Hopper template. Don't forget to assign your subscription to it as well by clicking on "View all hoppers" and then on "Subscriptions" (upper right corner). The old trading history will be deleted when you delete your Hopper.
Make changes in the Trade history It is not possible to adjust data in the Trade history shown on Cryptohopper itself. If you do want to make changes to the Trade history, you can export the file in either PDF, CSV, or Excel.
