How to Clone a Trade

Release #241, on June 14, 2022, introduced the ability to easily clone a trade following these instructions.

On the TRADES screen, find the trade you wish to clone, click the three dots on the left-hand side and select CLONE from the drop-down menu.

The resulting modal window provides a form where you can choose attributes from the trade being cloned that you wish to update. The window should look like this: 

To add an attribute to change, click + EDIT for a new attribute row to appear, as shown below: 

Select the attribute you wish to change and enter the value. 

Once you've changed the attributes, click save, and the trade will be cloned. The resulting trade will be identical to the source trade, with the exception of the changed attributes on the clone form and any audit-related attributes, such as created and updated timestamps.

Cloning Group Trades

To clone group trades, check out our How to Group Trades article. Then, hover your mouse over the commodity icon of the trades you'd like to group. When you're finished, your grouped trades should look like this: 

Next, follow the steps above to clone your group trades. 

Additional Notes:

  • Trade attribute external_source will be set with a value of "clone" on the new trade.
  • Trade attribute external_exec_id will be unset on the resulting trade to avoid any possible unexpected results with API logic to dedupe trades.
  • If no trade date is provided, the resulting trade will have a trade date equal to the user's local date at the time of cloning the trade.

That's it! We hope this will save you some time. If you have any questions, please let us know at support@molecule.io
