How to open/close an order (position)?
There are several ways to open a trading order:
- Choose “Tools” → “New order” in the program menu.
- Double-click on the name of the trading instrument in the “Market Watch” window.
- Click on the “New Order” button on the toolbar.
- Press the F9 key on the keyboard.
When opening a position, it is necessary to fill in the following fields:
- Symbol – choose the instrument for trading.
- Volume – set the volume of the order (number of lots).
- Stop Loss – set the Stop Loss level (not obligatory). If it is 0.000, it is considered that the order is not placed.
- Take Profit – setting the Take Profit level is not an obligatory parameter either. If it is 0.000, it is considered that the order is not placed
Attention! If Stop Loss and Take Profit levels were set too close to the current price, you will see an error message: “Incorrect S/L or T/P”. You will need to move the levels farther from the current price and repeat the request.
To open a pending order, please, press the F9 key on your keyboard and in the “Type” menu choose “Pending order”.
Closing of a position
To close a position, please, right-click on the order in the “Trade” area below the chart and choose “Close order” on the menu. Another way to close the order is to double-click on it in the “Trade” area.
The order with the set levels of Take Profit and/or Stop Loss will close automatically when the price reaches the chosen Take Profit or Stop Loss. A Long position is closed at the Bid price, a Short position – at the Ask price.
