Positions Table

The Positions Table, pictured below, displays a list of all your open positions with the exception of Box Options. It is similar to the Open Trades table, except that all trades for a given currency pair are aggregated into one line (a single "position").

Note: If you don't see all of these columns, click the User-added image button beside the table to add them from the Table Configuration window.

 


Positions Table Columns

First column: Indicates whether the position is a Long (buy) or a Short (sell).

Market: The position's currency pair.

Units: The size of the position, in base currency units.

Exposure: The overall exposure to the currency pair. This value represents the sum of all trades involving this currency pair.

Avg. Price: The take profit value for the order. The resultant trade would be automatically closed when/if the exchange rate crossed this value.

Current: The current market exchange rate you would receive if you closed the position. (The bid rate is shown for long positions and the ask rate is shown for short positions.)

Profit: Unrealized profit (for positive values) or loss (for negative values). The profit/loss value is reflected in the "Unrealized P&L" section of the Account Summary, and is continuously updated to reflect the latest exchange rates. If this position were closed, the unrealized profit (or loss) would be "realized" and added to (or subtracted from) your account balance.

Click the User-added image button above the table's scroll bar to select one or more profit formats:

  • Profit: The difference between the opening rate and the current rate, expressed in the quote currency.
  • Profit (Home Currency): The profit, expressed in your account's default, or home, currency.
  • Profit (PIPS): The difference between the opening rate and the current market rate, expressed in pips.
  • Profit (%): The difference between the opening rate and the current market rate, expressed as a percentage of the opening rate
