I’m sure everyone here has traded on the market at least once, and if your experience was anything like mine then you found it annoying. Why annoying? Because:
The table on mobile requires horizontal scrolling.
When creating an offer, you have to remember what price and quantity you want to set and not get them mixed up.
You need to double think if you want to click that sell or buy button.
If the offer on the market is greater than you can accept and you want to buy as much as you can afford you either end up calculating how much you can buy/sell or enter small guess amounts until you run out of money.
and plenty more. I’m sure most of you have even made a mis-trade, and while most of them only cost you a few thousand dollars, others have lost millions due to a simple mistake that never needed to exist. Now. Why am I telling you all this? Well, because I have a simple solution to all these problems and more that will make you’re trading easier, faster and most importantly safer.
The solution is called DocScripts. Open source, available on all major platforms, and 100% free for everyone. Either search DocScripts up with your search engine of choice, should be the top or one of the top results, or click the link here. https://docscripts.stagintin.com/
Now what is DocScripts and how does it solve these problems and more? Well DocScripts, more specifically the View Trades and Create Trade script:
Change the market UI so it collapses better when on small screens.
Adds Outbid, and Match buttons on the existing offers so you can easily click on the price you want. Being one dollar better or the same price.
And when using those buttons fills in the create offer form for you and hides the opposing sell/buy button so you can’t click on the wrong one.
Changes the default amount sitting in the boxes of the current offers to accept and lowers it, if necessary, to what you can actually afford. So there is no need to calculate or guess what’s possible. Just click accept.
These scripts also offer other features like allowing you to easily switch between markets and protect you from accidentally selling off your warchest. But I think the greatest selling point is that it gives you basic protection against creating mis-trades by simply changing how you approach creating offers through the Outbid and Match button.
For those of you that don’t know what a mis-trade is. Simply put, it’s when you create an offer on the market that is of a worse price than the best opposing offer on the market. Because, remember, there are two sides to the market. When you create offers, they can be to sell or buy. And if you create an offer selling resources at worse prices than offers currently buying than you’re creating a mis-trade as you’d make more money by simply accepting their offer.
An analogy: If I am buying apples at $10 each then you start selling apples at $7 each, you’d have created a mis-trade as some other third party can come, buy your apples and sell it instantly to me for a $3 profit each. You’d have been better off accepting my offer selling to me at $10 instead of creating an offer selling at $7.
DocScripts can protect you from making a million dollar mistake and all while making trading smoother, faster and easier. Give yourself real protection and have it cost you nothing.
