Huobi Pro Review[edit]

How to pronounce Huobi and what does Huobi means?

Huobi was founded in September 2013. It is one of the largest digital currency exchanges in China. In August 2017 Huobi along with OKCoin invested 1 billion yuan ($150 million) of idle client funds into “wealth-management products".[2] In September 2017, It was reported that Huobi and OKCoin would be stopping Yuan-to-bitcoin trading. In November 2017, According to reports, Huobi launched three tokens: 0x (ZRX), Kyber (KNT), and Airswap (AST) on their global trading platform,[3]

In October 2017, the exchange fell victim to the authorities ' policy against digital assets and was forced to close. The exchange opened again under the Huobi Domain was registered on March 19, 2017.

The exchange operates from Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, and has operating offices in China. The exchange supports more than 190 trading pairs, which are divided into 3 main markets: USDT, BTC and ETH. Of all the markets, the USDT market is the scantest. At the same time, the BTC market is the most saturated, and most of the new cryptocurrencies appear in pairs to bitcoin. In addition to the standard inclusion of cryptocurrencies in the listing, Huobi.Pro added bitcoin forks such as BTG, BIFI or BCX.

To work with all this variety of trading pairs traders are invited to take advantage of a fairly convenient trading platform, which among other things stands out rich functionality. First of all, attention should be paid to the interface used for plotting, which allows you to choose among a variety of time segments and has a rich set of options for setting the charts themselves. Also surprising is the abundance of technical indicators, the functionality of which, at least, is not inferior to the basic set of tools MT4.

It is possible to place market and limit orders. The platform provides detailed information on open orders, order history and market depth. It is also possible to track transactions in real time. All together it allows to carry out a detailed analysis of the current mood of the market[4].

Among other things, the exchange offers the possibility of margin trading, for participation in which traders are invited to sign an additional agreement, since trade without coverage implies a higher degree of risk.
