* If you have subaccounts, you need to register the API key for each subaccount. When you register the API key for subaccounts, type in the subaccount name.


* When adding your main account, please leave the "Subaccount name" field empty.


* Please do not specify or remove API Keys of deleted accounts. If you do so, it becomes an error and you won't be able to obtain histories from API.


* If you do FTX "Borrow" and use the position to send deposits or short-sell, and if the "Borrow" is repaid within an hour, the API may not be able to fetch the borrow/repay history and you may end up with invalid transactions. When this happens, please upload the borrow/repay pair as custom trades.
