How do I place a trade in the platform?

Learn what your deal ticket has to offer, from basic functionality to advanced options.

  • Click on a market to open its deal ticket.
  • The basic deal ticket shows live buy and sell prices, the spread in points and the minimum bet size for the market.
  • Enter a bet size, select a currency, define close conditions and view your margin and net exposure.
  • To add force open and price and fill options to the deal ticket, go to ‘settings’.
  • Use the ‘order’ tab to set a position to open, or the ‘alert’ tab to set an alert to notify you, as soon as your price conditions are met.
