Is there a way to enter a short position? It appears that you can only enter a LONG position, then SELL that LONG position. I would like to enter a SHORT position but sell() is not the same as short. In fact, if you try to sell() in an attempt to short a position it will error out that you have no BTC to sell.
the platform does not support that functionality
change title and move to feature requests?
The TW API would need to introduce new methods to actual execute the short orders on the exchange. Some exchanges have same method with different params and some require via a different method. I would have to consolidate all those and then implement per exchange basis.
Do we have any consensus on which one you would want to implement first like OkCoin, Coinbase etc.
I think the most interest would be at bitfinex and okcoin; especially if leveraged positions could be incorporated.
I personally trade long almost exclusively.
I use BFX myself. I believe being able to short is very important as testing shows that even with a 46% win rate, the bull moves are smaller in a bear market and so i end up with a loss because Im not able to take advantage of bear moves.
Also interested in being able to short on bitfinex.
