Yes, emojis actually mean something here! Xypherian makes extensive use of emojis to make checking easier to follow on the eye. Most of the time, they mean the following:

Green emoji: bullish, positive trend or price
Red emoji: bearish, negative trend or price
White emoji: no change in trend or price
Now, lets begin explaining each function.

You can check the current price, volume and more current data with the command /p. You can add the paramenter full to retrieve even more data.

[Free] TradingView ideas plugin: /ideas

Xypherian can retrieve the top ideas and signals from tradingview.com traders directly. This function is highly customizable and thus, a bit daunting to use.

First of all, tickers!

This function only accepts tickers in TradingView format, which is [Coin][Base], altogether. For example:
BTCUSD -> BTC on the USD markets
BTCUSDT -> BTC on the USDT markets
LTCUSD -> LTC on the USD markets
ETHBTC -> ETH on the BTC markets

If you send the ticker alone (like, just 'BTC') you won't get anything! This will likely be changed in the future.

Type of search:

You can search by symbol or user. Note that if you don't specify a type, I will search tickers directly
/ideas user charlieguadamuz (search for ideas from user charlieguadamuz)
/ideas symbol BTCUSD (search for ideas of BTCUSD). This is the default analysis: I will always analyze for symbols if you don't specify it.

Get pictures or links

By default, I will retrieve a list of the ideas in text format. You can opt to get direct images of the charts instead of written lists. Add -p anywhere in your command to retrieve the pictures. Min is 2, max is 10, default is 3
/ideas user charlieguadamuz -p -> search for ideas from user charlieguadamuz, retrieves 3 pictures.
/ideas BTCUSD -p -> retrieves 3 the latest 3 pictures of BTCUSDT charts


You can set the amount of charts to retrieve. Max for lists is 15, for pictures is 10. Min is 2.
/ideas user charlieguadamuz -p 2 -> search for ideas from user charlieguadamuz, retrieves 2 pictures.
/ideas BTCUSD -p 5 -> retrieves the latest 5 pictures of BTCUSDT charts

Filtering: pro traders

You can choose to get only Pro TradingView ideas by adding -pro to your command.
/ideas pattern bullflag -pro 4 -> search for bull flag patterns, retrieves 4 pictures from pro users
/ideas BTCUSD -p -pro 5 -> retrieves the latest 5 pictures of BTCUSDT charts from pro users

For lists: description

Adding -d to the end of your command will retrieve the description along with the list of links.
/ideas ETHBTC -d -> retrieves list of ideas with comments from the trader

Additional note: usernames are case sensitive. For example: XyPhErIaN is different than Xypherian!

-Basic UsageAdvanced Usage
Template/ideas [TradingViewTicker]/ideas [Type]* [TradingViewTicker] [Amount]* [PictureFilter]* [ProTraderFilter]*
Example/ideas BTCUSDT/ideas symbol BTCUSDT 5 -p -pro

[Free] Longs VS Shorts: /lvs

Xypherian can retrieve a short but insightful summary of the balance between longs and shorts in Bitfinex. A red emoji indicates that the shorts are bigger than the longs, while a green emoji indicates the opposite.

-Basic UsageAdvanced Usage
Template/lvs/ideas lvs full
This indicator compares the amount of the currency on each side. Lets explore the following scenario:
22000 BTC -> Long (There are 22k Bitcoins on longs)
35000 BTC -> Short (There are 35k Bitcoins in shorts)
Longs = 39%
Shorts = 61%

There are clearly more bitcoins stacked on shorts than in longs. Note that this doesn't refer to how much bitcoin has been sold/bought, but to how much bitcoin was put on margin in Bitfinex.

[Free] CrossFire plugin: /arb

Xypherian can perform arbitrage over 15 exchanges and all their base markets, just like in CrossFire. If you don't specify a base market, the BTC base market will be checked.

-Basic UsageAdvanced Usage
Template/arb [Coin]/arb [Base]* [Coin]
Example/arb ETH/arb USDT ETH 
Xypherian will answer you the lowest ask, the highest bid, and their corresponding exchanges; along with a sorted list of the top three best offers. If you need to check the codes of the exchanges, simply write /codes and Xypherian will return an updated list with the codes and their corresponding exchanges.

[Premium] Multiframe Candlestick Charts: /mc

Xypherian can return candlestick charts of 4 different timeframes at the same time. This function follows the same format as /c.

-Basic UsageAdvanced Usage
Template/mc [Coin]/mc [Base]* [Coin] [Exchange]*
Example/mc BTC/mc USDT BTC Bittrex

If everything goes right, you will get charts of 5M, 30M, 4H, and 1D, 140 periods each.
