- Sign in to fxTrade.
- Open the Order window.
Click in the Rate Panel over the currency pair you want to trade.
- Make sure the correct order tab is selected
(We talk about Entry Orders here.)
- Click Buy or Sell.
Buy if you think the currency pair may go up in value; sell if you think it may go down. Buy and sell rates are different because of the dealer’s spread, which varies by time of day and market events.
- Verify the currency pair.
Select another pair from the list if you want to change it.
- Type the number of units you want to trade.
- Click Submit.
