How do I edit my positions in the platform?

There are numerous ways you can edit deals and orders once they have been placed.
 
You can edit positions from the ‘positions’ and ‘working orders’ panels on your workspace (if they’re not on your workspace, you can add them from the ‘positions’ and ‘orders’ tabs in the fly-out menu, on the left side of the screen). Add or edit stops and limits by clicking the values in the table. With orders, you can edit the entry level by clicking the value as well. 
 
You can also add stops and limits to positions directly on the chart clicking on the position and dragging upwards or downwards. We'll give you a risk/reward ratio based on your chosen stop and limit.
 
Please note that you can't edit an existing position or order using a deal or order ticket. Entering new data here and clicking ‘place deal’ or ‘place order’ will result in a new position being created.
