SmartTrade: Opened Orders, Opened Positions and Account Assets

Sometimes when trading, you wish to see the orders opened on the Exchange and open Positions on the Futures Exchange.

Updated over a week ago

What is the Opened Orders and Positions tool?

Sometimes, when you trade, you may wish to see opened orders and positions on your linked Spot or Futures Exchange without having to log into the exchange account linked to 3Commas:

  • on Spot exchange, you can only see Open Orders;

  • on Futures exchange, you can see both Open Orders and Open Positions;

  • on both Spot and Futures exchanges, you can see the Account Assets tab.

It might be that you have a position that has been partially filled, and you wish to check the status or just to double-check if the orders are placed correctly.

This tool is very useful if you cancel a Futures trade or if it fails for any reason.

You can also use this tool to view opened orders for any SmartTrades (including Signal bot trades), DCA Bots, Grid bots, and even any orders you've created outside of 3Commas, such as on the exchange's website or mobile app!

The Opened Orders and Positions tool displays both Limit Orders waiting on the exchange order books to fill (these can be Add Funds orders, Safety orders, Stop Loss orders or Take Profit orders) and any open positions you have running on Futures.

Where can I find the Opened Orders and Positions widget?

Go to the SmartTrade page in the 3Commas web interface and choose the exchange account at the top of the page you wish to view open orders or positions for:

Then scroll down past the chart and trade creation section. You'll see the widget and you can click on this line to expand it and display the orders and positions. If you view a Spot exchange account, you will see only the orders displayed (if you have any open). If it is a Futures account, you'll additionally see 2 buttons: Open Orders and Open Positions - you can also use the "Search" box to filter orders by asset name or a specific order, trade or deal ID number if you have many open orders:

Open Orders tab

Here is an example showing the opened orders from a linked spot exchange account(or Demo account). You can see which tool opened the order - SmartTrade, DCA bot or Grid bot:

Open Positions tab

If you cancel an opened Smart Trade or Bot deal, or open a position directly on the exchange's web or mobile app interface, the Position remains open and is still able to be liquidated! It is essentially an orphaned position with no management or visibility on 3Commas. Those positions will be marked as "Not linked to 3Commas".

If you see this, you have two options:

  1. Close the Position by pressing the Close at Market Price button (1 on the screenshot above);

  2. Take control of the position and click the Convert to SmartTrade button (2 on the screenshot above). This allows you to configure Take Profit and/or Stop Loss settings or just retain visibility and uPNL (unrealized Profit and Loss) of the opened position.

If you click on the Convert to SmartTrade button, you will be redirected to the page where you will be able to review the Smart Trade and confirm if everything is correct.

Please note!

It is very important to manage any positions you have opened on the exchange account when trading Futures, especially if you cancel the 3Commas trade that was controlling them. It is a good habit to check the number of positions the "Opened Orders and Positions" widget matches the number of active trades you think should be running and when unsure, you can expand the widget to view/check for any positions "Not linked to 3Commas" as in the guide above.

Account Assets tab

This place can help you see what assets (or contracts) you have available or purchased on your Spot or Futures account.

Here you can see a volume ratio from your entire portfolio (Share) or total amount of assets (Amount). The next column shows the asset value in terms of USD (Total, $). The next column displays the current price of 1 coin or contract (Price, $); it is updated as the page is refreshed. The last column displays the 24-hour change in USD value (Change 24h, $).
