Trading Accounts: Managing Multiple Accounts on the Same Exchange

If you have more than one account on the same exchange, you can connect each of them to Altrady, then view, trade and analyse each account separately or together.

Each account is referred to as a Trading Account.

Paper accounts are also added as Trading Accounts, and are also specific to an exchange.

Additional Trading Accounts are added in the same way as adding an exchange, under Settings>Exchange API Keys. It is helpful to give each Trading Account a different labels as these are used in Altrady to distinguish each account.
The example below shows two trading accounts on Binance, labelled Bina A and Bin B.

In many widgets and pages in Altrady, you can access or view each Trading Account separately:
Trading, Charts and Orders (The Trading Terminal)
My Positions
