If a maker is making an "ask" and then this is met by a buyer, would that be listed as sale or a buy on the "recent trades" list ?

Specifically I am using the trades list on the Kraken exchange.


Your example would generally be listed as a sell.

Where a buyer buys from the existing sell/ask order that is a sale.

Where a seller sells in to an existing buy/bid order that is a buy.

  • Hi,I am getting the feeling it is the other way around . At least on Kraken. – Zertix.net Jun 15 '17 at 20:51
  • I mean it's also easy to test. Put up an order and when it fills look how it's represented in the transaction register. – quid Jun 15 '17 at 21:03
