As part of the default settings of the v4 open source software (”dYdX Chain”), traders can view respective open limit or stop positions on the “Orders” tab on the bottom part of the trade page.

If an order that has not be filled, traders can view details about their order like:

  • Status: this column contains the order status as an icon on the left (hover for details) and the order type in text on the right (e.g., limit, market, etc.)

  • Side: buy (long) or sell (short)

  • Amount / Filled: this is the total size of your order and how much of the open order has been filled

  • Price: the limit price at which the order is placed

  • Trigger: the trigger price at which the order is placed

  • Good Til: Order will remain open, unless it is filled, until the Good Til date. The default value is 28 days, which can be changed when placing the order. Maximum is 90 days on the front end and 95 on the protocol by default.

A trader can cancel an open order at any time by clicking the red cross on the right of the order.
