Learn how to set up take-profit orders to secure your gains when the market reaches your target price.
A Take Profit Order order will automatically sell an asset for you if its price rises by a percentage amount you specify.
This means you can capitalize on market uptrends without having to obsessively track the asset’s every price movement - saving you time, and stress.
Say you buy a single token, ‘X’, for $10.
When you purchase ‘X’ on Uphold, you’ll immediately be given the option to set up a ‘Take Profit’. Three percentage values will come up on your screen (you can customize the percentage too).
Let’s say you set your ‘take profit’ at ‘50%’. This means that if your token, X, goes up to $15, your position will automatically close. You’ll sell ‘X’ at $15 and ‘take’ away a 50% ‘profit’ from your initial investment (a 50% ‘take profit’).
Using these kinds of tools can help take control of your portfolio as well as your time.

If you hold insufficient assets to cover the entire Take Profit Order, it will not execute.
Our charts show the mid-market price for any given assets. Take Profit Orders are triggered by the actual Buy or Sell prices achievable in the market. There’s always a difference between the two.
This means that while our charts may suggest the target price for an asset has been met, the actual Buy or Sell price required in order to execute the trade was not. As a result, the Take Profit Order remains open.
