Set the amount of money (1) you're willing to invest and select an appropriate multiplier (2). A multiplier will allow you to invest a larger amount than the one you have on hand which means your potential profit will be bigger.

However, the losses you could incur would also be multiplied by the same number. Click on the Auto Close (3) option to specify the stop loss and take profit price levels.

A stop loss restriction automatically closes your trading position when the losses on that trade reach a certain amount. Similarly, a take profit restriction will automatically close your position once a certain amount of profit is made.

Depending on whether you believe the asset is going to appreciate or depreciate, click buy or sell (4).
