The altrady trading user interface can be customized according to your preference. You can make little tweaks on how you want it to appear and what features you want to focus on. You can drag widgets in different directions, join tabs together, or even detach tabs that have been joined before.
To access your altrady trading user interface, go to your dashboard.
On the left side of your dashbord, you will find the following five tabs: Trade, Quick Scan, Portfolio, Statistics, and Help.
Clicking on the TRADE TAB will bring you to the trading interface. So what can you see on your trading interface?
The altrady chart is powered by TradingView. What is cool with our charts is that you can actually make a better analysis or even provide clearer explanations on certain price movements because of the tools that you can use. You can choose to draw figures, trace points, insert comments, place texts, create templates, and so much more on your altrady chart.
The chart basically provides you with real-time data concerning price movements on your chosen coin pairs or cryptocurrency market.
To help you understand more about the chart, you can refer to the legend below:
Yellow Dotted Line - Current Price
Orange Line - Break-Even Point
Red Dotted Line - Ask Price
Green Dotted Line - Bid Price
Blue Dotted Line - Alert
Green Solid Line - Not Respected Base
Red Solid Line - Respected Base
Blue Solid Line - Saved Base

II. Market Depth Chart
The market depth chart shows the volume of buy and sell orders for a particular coin. It displays buy and sell walls which can be a helpful determinant in your trading decision.
You can click anywhere on the plot area of the chart and drag up to the point that you want to know more about. This will zoom in the chart so you can better see the market depth and price levels.
The market depth chart widget can be dragged anywhere on the interface. Simply point your cursor to the market depth chart widget and wait for the hand symbol to appear before you can drag it upward, downward, leftward, or whatever direction you deem best.
III. My Orders
My Orders Widget shows all your open orders and closed orders for a particular market or even on all markets across your connected exchanges.
It summarizes all the orders that you have placed including more important details such as the kind of transaction, the amount of coins you have bought or sold, the price level by which you have complete the purchase or sales, how much of your orders have been filled, and the status of whether the order is still open or already closed.
The Markets Widget lets you navigate the different markets in different exchanges quickly. With it, you can explore the status of various coin pairs from one exchange to another.
To use it, simply click on any of the available exchanges on the left side of the Markets Widget and select among the coin pairs that will appear on the right. You can also use the search bar to easily access the information about the market that you are interested in. From this, you can see other details like their current market prices, the 24-hour volume for the specific market, and the percentage change. Greens indicate positive change while reds indicate drops in prices.
Another awesome feature of the Markets Widget is the Watchlist. So what is the watchlist?
The Markets Watchlist basically lists down all your preferred or favorite coin pairs. To add a coin pair on the watchlist, simply follow the steps:
Step 1: Click the All Button. It will bring you to all the markets across exchanges.
Step 2: Selected the market that you are interested in and right-click.
Step 3: Click Add to Watchlist
Step 4: Go to the Watchlist Button to check if the market has been added.
If you are a bit OC or you simply want to better organize your watchlist, then you can also sort markets into different colors.
On the Watchlist, select the coin pair, right-click, and set your desired color for the particular market.
V. Alerts Widget
The Alerts Widget lets you receive notifications when a particular market or coin pair drops or rises a certain percentage from a price level.
To set up your alerts:
Step 1: Set the price percentage drop or rise.
Step 2: Indicate the price level from which you want to base the alerts. You can simply click on the circular target symbol on the right to automatically fill the box with the current market price.
Step 3: Put in your notes - words that can remind you of your trading strategy or goal.
Step 4: Choose your alert sound. The choice really depends on your musical personality.
Step 5: Click the Save Button.
Once you have set your alerts, you will notice that a new blue dotted line will appear on your chart. This only means that you have successfully created a new alert. Seeing the blue dotted lines on the chart can work as a visual reminder to you about your trading goal or strategy.
The Alerts Widget can be dragged anywhere on the interface. Simply point your cursor to the Alerts Widget and wait for the hand symbol to appear before you can drag it to the direction you prefer.
VI. News Widget
To give a complete information about cryptocurrency markets, altrady has added a News Widget.
The News Widget provides you with the latest news about the digital currency market including new company developments, product updates, blockchain technology solutions, price predictions and analyses, and so much more from reputable external sources.
What is cool with the altrady News Widget is its relevance. It does not randomly show any kind of news but only those which could potentially help you in your trading decisions.
VII. Bases Widget
The Bases Widget contains your saved bases, active bases, and all bases on exchanges.
Having the bases widget is very important for those who are following the QFL Strategy or the Base Strategy. By just looking at the Base Widget, you can already see the performance of certain coin pairs whether they are good for day trading or not.
Since the Base Widget may be filled with so much information, you can actually sort and filter them out according to the following:
Minimum/Maximum 24-hour Volume for Each Currency
Minimum/Maximum Drop from Base Percentage
Success Rate (0-100%)
Average Time to Respect Bases (previous) (0-30 days)
A cool feature of the Bases Widget is the Filter Presets. You can access this by clicking on the symbol with three horizontal lines on the upper right side of the widget. Its gives you an ability to create filter presets so you can quickly switch between different presets instead of setting them from scratch every time.
VIII. Break Even Calculator Widget
The Break Even Calculator of altrady is among the smartest tools you can have for trading digital currencies. It helps you immediately know whether you are still earning or losing coins from all your trades across exchanges. It automatically computes all the cryptocurrencies that you have to show you the following details in real-time:
Break Even Point - This is the price when there is neither no loss nor profit (+/-0%).
Realized Profit - This is the total profit from sold coins.
Unrealized Profit - This is the possible profit if you sell unsold coins at the current price.
Net profit - This is the sum of two (realized & unrealized) profits.
Invested - This shows how much BTC you invested in this market.
Recovered - This shows how much BTC from the invested amount has been recovered.
Remaining (Left Side)- This shows how many coins are left invested. It is computed by getting the difference between the Invested and Recovered amounts. If the value is negative, it means that you are in profit and have gained “free coins”.
Bought - This shows how many coins have been bought.
Sold - This shows how many coins have been sold.
Remaining (Right Side) - This is computed by getting the difference between the Bought and Sold. It only shows how many coins are left.
You can filter the information shown on the Break Even Calculator by determining the start and end dates for the calculation.
IX. Base Info Widget
The Base Info Widget provides you with the information concerning the bases detected and the performance of such bases.
altrady uses unique algorithms for market analysis. You can choose among four different algorithm sectors by clicking the drop-down arrow.
Select your trading algorithm - Original, Day Trading, Conservative Trader, or Position Trader.
Right beside the delete/trash can icon, you will find the corresponding controls for navigating bases - previous base, next base, and last base. You can also have the option to save a certain base by clicking the star icon right beside the controls or strict inequality symbols. Once you have clicked the star for a particular base, you will be able to find it in the Bases Widget under the Saved category.
The Base Info Widget shows you the following:
- Drop % - This is the percentage of the current price versus the base.
- Base - This shows the price of the base.
- Below base for - This indicates the time below base.
- 90% respected in - This is the average time for 90% of bases to be respected.
- Median drop - This indicates the average price drop below the base.
- Average bounce - This shows the average price increase from base, on the first bounce up.

- Success rate - This shows the percentage of bases that have been respected over the past 30 days.
X. My Alerts Widget
My Alerts Widget shows a list of all the alerts that you have created in the Alerts Widget.
It helps you effectively keep track of your goals and trading strategy.
Currently, My Alerts Widget only shows the active alerts with set prices that haven't been reached yet. However, altrady will soon be adding a list of all alerts including those that have already been reached and sent.
XI. Order Book Widget
The Order Book Widget contains a list of all the active buy and sell orders for a certain coin pair on a particular exchange.
By looking at the order book, you can make better sense of the market depth for a particular cryptocurrency. It will show you the highest and lowest bids for buy and sell orders.
- Bids are offerings to buy your coin for a certain price
- Asks are requests to buy a coin at a particular price
Another use for the Order Book Widget is the information provided by the buy and sell walls which could also help in your buying or selling decision.
The Green Walls that you see on the left side are buy walls. These walls support your coin.
The Red Walls that you see on the right side are sell walls. These walls show the resistance that a coin is facing.
XII. Trades Widget
The Trades Widget contains a list of all the trades that are happening real-time for a certain coin pair.
As you select a cryptocurrency pair on the Markets Widget, the information on the Trades Widget will also be automatically changed to reflect the accurate details corresponding to the market that you have chosen.
Among the information that you can find here are the date and time by which the trade happened, the price of the coin during the transaction, and the amount of coin that was traded. Prices with green font color are buy transactions while those with red font are sell transactions.
XIII. Trading Widget
The Trading Widget lets you place buy and sell orders on the altrady application without having to go to your exchange accounts. For as long as you have connected your exchange API to the altrady desktop application, then you can take advantage of the software's trading features.

- Type: Choose between Limit or Market. Limit lets you configure the percentage of assets to be bought/sold and the buying/selling price. Market follows the current price of the coin and you can only set the percentage of assets to be bought/sold.
- Spend: This lets you choose a percentage of your coin assets to be spent for buying a particular cryptocurrency.
- Sell: This lets you choose a percentage of your coin assets to be sold.
- Price: You can choose to manually set the dollar price for the coin or drag points on the chart to the level that you want to buy or sell a coin. You may also click the drop-down arrow and choose among the Bid Price, Ask Price, or Last Price of the market.
- Buy: This gives you a summary of the amount of the coins to be bought in crypto and dollar terms.
- Receive: This gives you a summary of the amount of coins you will receive after the transaction in crypto and dollar terms.

XIV. Quick Scan
The Quick Scan Widget lets you easily see the markets that have experienced a sudden price drop or rise. You can take advantage of this widget if you want to find opportunities where you can buy coins at a much lower rate. Remember that most markets that have experienced sudden price drops do not retain their low price levels for a long time.
