Trading on exchanges is carried out through trading pairs. These pairs follow a pattern called base/quote, where base is the traded asset and quote is the pricing asset of the traded asset.
Example: BTC/BRL is the Bitcoin pair priced in Brazilian Real, in other words, you must have a balance in BRL to buy BTC.
If you do not have a balance in the quote currency, the order will be rejected for Insufficient Balance:
Check the balance of the quote currency
To see the balance in each currency, access the Portfolio tool, in the Trade menu:
The Qty column displays the available balance.
The balance is also displayed in the upper right field of the platform:
This field displays the Spot account balance only.
