Step 4: Opening a Trade

To open a trade, you need to first select the asset that you want to trade. Then you need to select the appropriate button for the direction of the trade that you want to trade - "buy" or "sell". In our example here, we used the GBP/USD as the selected asset and the long (Buy) position. Once you click on either the “Buy” or “Sell” button, the trade execution panel will open. Set the parameters of your trade and click the “Open Trade” button to execute the trade.

An entry will appear under the “Open Trades” tab showing the asset purchased, the units purchased, the amount invested, the purchased price, the current price, the gain percentage and your profit or loss for that particular trade.
