How to trade a long position on Bybit
Step 1: Market assessment
Only when you have looked at the market from different perspectives, you can be sure that there is actually a valid trend. Based on a good market assessment, we can deal with the topic of risk and capital deployment in the next step.
Step 2: Risk & Capital
When it comes to risk and capital investment, everything depends on one central question: How confident are you in your trade and how much are you willing to lose? You should definitely make this decision before opening your trade. Once you have answered this question, you can choose between a limit order and a market order on Bybit.
- Limit order: A limit order is a type of order that becomes active only when a certain trigger price is reached. You set the price that should trigger the order and Bybit automatically opens your position when your desired price is hit.
- Market order: A market order is a type of order that is executed immediately. The price at which a market order is executed corresponds to the market price at the time of execution.
You enter the quantity at Qty (Quantity / Menge) in USD. This corresponds to the amount of your position in USD. Then click on “Buy / Long” to create your long position or to open a market order.
