Account currency / conversion rate - live trading

Hi all,

Hope you can help me out.

I am live trading on GDAX and due to its geographical restrictions I have to trade the EUR pairs. However, when calculating my position sizings the algo converts everything into USD (available cash etc) except for the actual currency pair (e.g. BTCEUR). This leads to wrong position sizing and invalid order as I am calculating cash in USD but then use the EUR pair and not the USD pair to get to the position size.

Is there a way to set the account currency to EUR so everything is calculated in EUR? Or is there a way to access the conversion rate so I can manually convert the currencies?

Thanks you!

Sorry at this time we don't support EUR (non-USD) base currency. We're aware of this limitation for international crypto users and are working on a solution.
