Placing Trades

The Trading Station§ software is your direct connection to the forex market. It’s where traders buy and sell currencies and manage their accounts.




Placing a trade is simple. All you need to do is click on the ‘sell’ or ‘buy’ price for the currency pair you want to trade from the ‘Dealing Rates’ window. Then simply confirm the order details and click ‘OK’.

  • Step 1: Click ‘Buy’ or ‘Sell’
  • Step 2: Confirm Order and Click ‘OK’



With live trades in the market, you’ll want to know whether you’re making money or losing money. To do this, you’ll need to look in the ‘Summary’ window. There you will see your live trades and the details of those trades.

The risk of loss in leveraged foreign exchange trading can be substantial. You may not be suitable as you may sustain losses in excess of your initial margin funds. Leverage can work against you. Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” orders, will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable in light of your own financial position and investment objectives.
