Was suprised to find no short selling functionality on TW. I've only been able to find one thread about the subject.
Does anyone know if there are plans to add it in the near future ? I think it's an important function.
@litepresence Have you ever figured this out. I would love your inputs on short sell.
you guys would have to add compatibility... short selling is the act of borrowing coins you don't own to sell them on someone else's behalf.
Bitfinex and Okcoin both allow this on their webpage... and I believe it is documented in both api docs.
"borrow request" / "margin funding"
Its not something I can accomplish from the user end without commands provided like
from your end
enter_short() would allow me to sell coins I don't have, and exit_short() would close the position.
enter_long() would allow me to buy coins I can't afford, and exit_long() would close the position.
for the time being you could have a strategy send you an email, when and if it would consider it being a good time to short and you take that margin manually.
As that credit then behaves just like regular portfolio balance.
Its ofc only semi-automatic (unless you take a "permanent credit"), but better than nothing aka watching the price drop and not make money.
