How do I perform a trade?

To place a Limit Buy order
Enter the quantity of coins you would like to purchase in the green box labeled QUANTITY. 
2. Enter your limit price in the yellow box labeled BID. This is how much you are willing to pay per coin with the base currency. 
3. After you have verified the quantity and bid price click on "Buy CoinName" and confirm the total amount. 

A Limit SELL Order mirrors the description for a BUY order shown above.
Quick trades
1. Quick Trades are an offer to immediately "BUY" or "SELL" coins at a rate already posted to the Order Book.
2. The orders on the left side of the Order Book are offers to BUY coins.  The offers to BUY are listed from the highest BID price a buyer is willing to pay to the lowest.
3. In the offer highlighted below, the buyer can purchase 1.460 ETH at a rate of 0.06005000 BTC per ETH for a total price of 0.0877 BTC.

3. If you click on SELL next to any order, you will immediately sell coins at the highest rate offered and for the quantity offered at that best rate. 

4. In the example below, if you clicked on SELL in the area highlighted, you would SELL 43.331 ETH coins as follows:
    a) 1.460 ETH at a rate of 0.0600500 BTC (the first offer on the list),
    b) 5.328 ETH at a rate of 0.5998001 BTC (the second offer on the list), and
    c) The balance of the order at 0.05998000 (the offer you clicked on).

5. Once a Quick Order is placed, a confirmation window will pop up so you can double-check the order and confirm it.

6. A Quick BUY Order mirrors the description for a SELL order shown above.

1. All orders are conditional on there being sufficient coins in your Bittrex account to fulfill the order whether buying or selling.
2. Quick Orders are subject to other Buyers and Sellers reviewing the Order Book at the same time.  Quick Orders are not guaranteed at the displayed rate until the transaction closes.
