What is a view-only market?

In advanced trading, view-only markets are markets that have order books but trading isn’t currently available. There are a few reasons why this market may be view only: 

  • The assets in this market are not yet available for trading in your region. Trading requirements vary from region to region, so some assets may not be available in all regions. See our Asset Directory to learn more about each of our supported assets and trading availability in your location. 

  • This market is in the process of launching. When new markets are added to Coinbase, the markets are typically enabled in phases. Learn more about our new asset listings phases

  • There’s currently an issue with this market. It’s rare, but sometimes a market may have unexpected problems causing us to temporarily pause it. Check the Coinbase status page or the Coinbase Exchange status page for any market updates.
