Closing your trades

When you decide to close a trade, a pop-up box will show up and ask you to confirm your action.¬†That is because you don’t have one-click trading enabled. When it is enabled, the message will not show.

close your trade

If you want, you can enable it right then when the pop-up shows. If not, you can always turn it on later.

Editing your trades

Step 1: To edit your active position even more quickly, simply click on the position and it will trigger edit mode.

Step 2: Your position will open up in the order panel, and your SL (Stop Loss) & TP (Take Profit) levels will be displayed on the chart.

Step 3: You can edit your position directly on the chart or using the provided SL&TP calculator.
