NOTE: If you currently have a long or short position with this perpetual contract, the “Close only” option will appear when you try to open an opposite side position. By choosing “Close only,” after placing the order, the opposite side position will be applied to your existing position to close it.

For a “Close only” order, the amount cannot be higher than the amount from the existing order.

If you want to open a limit price or stop-limit price order, you will also need to add broker gas beforehand, so MCDEX can place your order to open the position when the market price reaches your targeted price.
