Transaction history report table

The transaction history report table has up to 19 columns, as shown in the sample screenshot. The report may contain more data than can be displayed on one page; if this is the case, the number of pages and the current page are shown in a bar at the top of the table. To navigate between pages, use the 'First', 'Previous', 'Next' and 'Last' buttons.

Ticket: uniquely identifies the transaction.

MT4 ID: uniquely identifies the transaction (specific to transactions made within MT4).

Date: the date and time of the transaction.

Expiry: indicates Entry Order expiry dates.

Traded by: identifies who made the transaction. For accounts with only one user, this field will typically be blank; for multi-user accounts, the user who placed the trade is indicated.

Currency Pair: the currency pair associated with the transaction.

Price: the currency exchange rate related to the transaction.

Trailing stop (pipettes): the distance in pipettes (fractional pips) specified for a trailing stop.

Transaction link: the transaction number of the original transaction. For example, the transaction number for an entry order in one row of the history report will also appear in the transaction link column of another row describing any activity related to this original entry order (for example, modify order, order fulfilled, order expired, and so on).

Amount: this field shows two types of data depending on the transaction:

  • The number of units of the base currency for trades. This value is not used in the P/L calculation and does not affect the value in the account balance field.
  • A monetary amount shown in the account home currency, for monetary transactions other than trades (for example, for interest credited and debited, or fund deposits and withdrawals). Interest amounts are added to or deducted from the account balance.

Balance: shows the account balance at the conclusion of the transaction. This value is not affected by open trades; it is only updated when a trade is closed.
