As the subtitle implies, this section will walk you through how to trade on PrimeXBT. The platform has a wide variety of options and settings under this section.
The first thing you should know is that you can rearrange, delete, add, or customize the size of any panel on the trading interface. In each panel, you will see an X [close] and three stripes at the top right. From the X you will close the panels and clicking and dragging from the 3 stripes will move the panel to wherever you want.
If for example, you have deleted the Charts panel, don’t worry, you can add it again from the “+ Add Widgets” menu, located in the top left corner.

The Turbo service is an additional service offered by PrimeXBT, through which you can speculate whether the price of a given asset rises or falls within a given time. This could be 1 minute, 5 minutes, 10 minutes … (this time varies depending on the chosen asset).
If you are correct in your forecast, you could win between 60% and 90% of your bet (the profit margins vary depending on the chosen asset).
If the price of BTC is currently $9500 and you believe that in the next 10 minutes that price will rise, you can proceed to choose the amount you want to bet on the price of BTC rising in the next 10 minutes and press the Green button to bet Upward.
Automatically a line will be created at your predicted price. This line ends with a green arrow, which indicates the exact moment in which the bet ends and checks the price of the asset to assess whether or not you won.
Covesting is a service offered by PrimeXBT that has great profit potential for both beginner and experienced traders.
Covesting is still in its BETA phase, but thanks to this service, new traders can avoid the hustle of choosing an asset to bet on and will be able to contribute to bets made by the more experienced traders.
On the other hand, traders who create a bet will earn fees for the service provided to traders who join their covesting funds. The higher the benefit of the fund created, the higher the fee will be received by the creator of the fund, for which everyone wins.

Leverage on PrimeXBT
PrimeXBT supports leveraged trading with leverage of up to x100 for cryptocurrencies, up to x500 for gold and silver, x100 for traditional stocks and commodities, and up to x 1000 for the forex market (currency).
This offers potentially outsized returns to the users of the platform since it allows them to make bigger bets with small investments.
Leverage can be a very powerful tool with which to generate great profits, but this feature is only recommended for users with a medium to high trading experience.
Imagine that you are using x100 leverage on your trade of 0.1 BTC. What this means is that you can make as big a bet as someone who is using 10 BTC. Leveraged trades enable the trader to make bets much larger than those that would be made without leverage and giving the possibility of obtaining greater profits.
However, you must be careful with using leverage since the moment your bet goes wrong and generates losses of 0.1 BTC (the capital with which we are operating) you will be liquidated and lose all your capital.
Whether you are an experienced trader or just started, PrimeXBT Exchange is a good choice.
This platform offers many features to its users making it a one-stop-shop for all trading needs. Trading with leverage, trading cryptocurrencies, stock markets, or commodities, providing tools for technical analysis, the Covesting service that is sure to get the community talking, the option of using Turbo for those who want to bet and generate profits quickly, without forgetting the 4-tier referral system.
And to all this, we must add the efforts of the platform to offer class-leading security features and 24/7 customer support.
PrimeXBT is undoubtedly one of the best exchanges out there for a beginner to the world of trading.
