Can I open long and short positions on the same market?

You can open a long and short position on the same market by making sure the ‘force open’ option is selected on your deal ticket.

If you can’t see the ‘force open’ option please navigate to ‘settings’ on the left, and make sure ‘show force open in ticket’ is switched on.

You won’t be able to have long and short positions on the same market if you’ve attached guaranteed stops to both sides of the deal.
