Trades Table Columns

First column: Indicates whether the trade is a long (buy) or a short (sell).

Ticket: The number that uniquely identifies an open trade. You can use this number as a reference for inquiries with OANDA, or to search for related transactions in the Transaction History database or Activity Log table.

Market: The currency pair involved in the trade.

Units: The trade size, or number of units of the base currency bought or sold.

S/L: The Stop Loss value for the trade. The trade will be closed automatically when/if the exchange rate crosses this value.

T/P: The Take Profit value for the trade. The trade will be closed automatically when/if the exchange rate crosses this value.

T/S: The Trailing Stop value for the trade. The trade will be closed automatically when/if the exchange rate crosses this value.

Price: The Trailing Stop value for the trade. The trade will be closed automatically when/if the exchange rate crosses this value.

Current: The current exchange rate for the trade's currency pair. The current bid rate is displayed for long positions; the current ask rate for short positions. This rate would apply if you closed your position at this point in time.

Profit: Refers to unrealized profit when positive and unrealized loss when negative. The profit and loss value is shown in the "Unrealized P&L" section of the Account Summary, and is continuously updated to reflect market conditions. When an open trade is closed, the unrealized profit (or loss) becomes "realized" and is 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
