Closing positions on Futures API

I am trading futures with the API, how do I close my position? I don’t see a good way to do it right now in the documentation.

Thank you for trying the new API functionality and pointing out the gap in the documentation. We will update the documentation to make this clearer. To close the position today, you need to place the reverse order. For example, place a buy/long order to close a sell/short position.

The close position API will be coming soon. Stay tuned!
