The trading page provides a way for Shrimpy customers to explore assets that are listed on the exchange linked to Shrimpy. Once you select an asset from the Trading page, it will bring you to the Asset Detail page for that asset. From here you can use our Simple Trading feature to place trades manually.
However, you might notice that there are times that you are not able to click on the preview button, it should look something like the screenshot below.
As you can see, everything required for a trade has been entered and yet you cannot progress to the trade preview.
In the top right of the asset detail page, you will see a drop-down that is populated with the portfolio that you are currently using for trading. If you have multiple portfolios, you can toggle between the different portfolios and trade on each individual portfolio.
When the portfolio you have selected in the top-right drop-down is already being automated by Shrimpy, we don't allow you to also manually trade on that portfolio. We have put this restriction in place to prevent unwanted interactions between your automation and manual trading strategies.
One example of an unwanted interaction would be if you have a threshold rebalancing strategy enabled for a portfolio. Trading on this portfolio could cause Shrimpy to immediately execute a threshold rebalance and simply undo your last trade.
Our team wants to ensure you always have a pleasant experience using Shrimpy, so at this time, we have put this restriction in place to protect your portfolio from small mistakes like the one described.
If you decide at any time that you want to trade on a portfolio that currently has an active automation, all you need to do is go to the "Automation" page in Shrimpy and select "Stop Automation". By selecting "Stop Automation" for the strategy that is currently automating your portfolio, Shrimpy will once again allow you to manually trade for that portfolio.
