Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. You could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage.

How do I partially close a position?

Click the ‘close’ button on the ‘positions’ panel, for the position you’d like to partially close. You’ll have the opportunity to enter a size to close (which will default to the full size of the position). Enter your closing size, the click the green ‘close’ button.

Please note: if 1-click trading is enabled, clicking ‘close’ from the ‘positions’ panel will immediately close the position. In order to partially close when 1-click trading is enabled, you’ll need to open a new ticket, and trade in the opposite direction, making sure to select ‘net off’ on the ticket.
