The Dashboard is the heart of your Hopper. You will spend most of your time checking the Dashboard. In this documentation tab, we'll teach you how to "read" your Hopper, import/synchronize positions, and much more.
Your Dashboard shows a summary of what your Hopper is doing. In the center, which is the most important, are the positions. These are the bits of crypto that your Hopper has bought and is currently tracking. On the right, also important, is where your profits are tracked.
The dashboard consists of many widgets, which you can close and reopen. If you miss a widget, click the eye icon in the top right of your Dashboard. A popup will appear where you can choose to open/close widgets.
You will also see the subscription that’s assigned to this Hopper and if you’re connected to the internet.
If you look a little bit more to the top, you’ll see the switch for the “Advanced View”, which we recommend checking out, how many Cryptohopper+ XP you have, you can chat in our internal community, check your profile and switch to Dark Mode (brilliant for those nightwalkers who trade until the late hours).
Your position list is something unique about Cryptohoper and a brilliant way to keep track of your investments. Regular exchanges don’t track your profits as Cryptohopper does. It’s an essential feature if you want to become a successful trader.
Click the “info” button to get information about why your Hopper has bought an asset and the current Take Profit, Stop-Loss, DCA and Trailing Stop-Loss settings of that position.
If you want to perform a specific action on one or more positions, use the bulk actions dropdown for an excellent overview of your actions. You can smoothly perform actions with multiple positions at once. If you want to sell several positions as fast as possible, you can even toggle the “Market Orders” button. This will sell much quicker than a regular limit order but is often also more expensive.
On the right is shown how much profits/losses you’ve made. There are two ways of tracking your profits/losses.
The regular profit calculator. Just fill in your start balance (the amount you had when you started trading) by clicking the small “Edit” button under it, and your profits will be tracked accurately. We recommend only using this option!
For those who also trade manually on the same exchange account out of Cryptohopper (not recommended), is the “User Invested/Returns” part. This will try to calculate how much profits/losses you’ve made based on your sells, instead of a difference in balance. Small mistakes can make this calculator incorrect, so we do not recommend this one.
Trade manually and check your past trades. Your full trade history can be found in the Trade History on the menu on the right.
We recommend using the Advanced View for manual trading, but it’s here if you need to access it quickly.
The current assets is an important section. You can see what kind of assets are on your exchange, but more importantly, you can synchronize them into your Hopper and even sell amounts that generally are too small to sell with the “Wallet Scrubber”.
If you synchronize assets, your Hopper will make a position for that asset. Your Hopper will use the current price as a buy price, setting the profit at 0%. If you’ve bought the asset for another price and want a correct profit calculation, make sure to fill in the right buying price.
For miners or merchants who accept crypto, there’s the auto-sync button. This will synchronize new assets automatically and import them. This allows you to exchange them automatically with the help of profit-making tools. A brilliant way to systematically exchange incoming assets for a couple of percent more than usual.
At the bottom is a crucial part. The Hopper output. This is the part where your Hopper communicates with you. If you ask yourself why your Hopper hasn’t bought assets, this is the first place to look!
Traders often forget to make sure that they have enough funds in the base currency or have conflicting configurations and sometimes, your exchange may even be down. Your Hopper output will tell you everything you need to know. If you don’t know what a particular error means, check the documentation, the question base or ask our chat support staff.
Connect as many exchange accounts to Cryptohopper as you’d like for free with our Pioneer package. Manage them manually and have a brilliant overview of your complete portfolio from Cryptohopper.
We recommend checking out the Advanced View. It may sound not very easy, but it offers a clear cockpit view that’s ideal for any level crypto trader.
