How to open/place trades

  1. Sign in to fxTrade.
  2. Open the Order window, and in the Rate Panel click on the currency pair you want to trade.
  3. Make sure the correct order tab is selected. You can read more about Entry Orders here.
  4. Click Buy or Sell. Click Buy if you think the currency pair may go up in value, and Sell if you think it may go down. Buy and sell rates differ because of the dealer’s spread, which varies depending on the time of day and market events.
  5. Verify the currency pair, and select another pair from the list if you want to change it.
  6. Type the number of units you want to trade.
  7. Click Submit.
