When an order in the opposite direction of existing position(s) is filled, how do my positions close?
Positions will be closed on a FIFO basis, regardless of position quantity.
If I have multiple positions in a market, can I set an associated stop or limit on a specific position?
An associated order can only be set on the total aggregate/amalgamated position in a particular market, not on an individual position.
Can I view my existing open positions and orders from within the mobile app?
Yes. Any trades and orders placed on Web Trader will be visible across all FOREX.com platforms and apps (excluding MT4). This enables you to place a trade on Web Trader and close it on the FOREX.com mobile app, or vice versa.
How do I add stops and limits?
To add an associated limit or stop (or both) to an open position, find your position in the Portfolio window. It should show AL and AS (associated limit and associated stop) as “Not set”. Tap on the position, which will switch you to the Trade Information page. Here you will see the toggles for Associated Limit and Associated Stop. Turn one or both on, and enter your desired order as a specific rate under “Price”, a specific number of pips away under “Pips”, or as a specific monetary value under “P&L”.
Additionally, use the swipe feature to add/edit any associated limit and stops on your positions.
How do I create a watchlist?
To create a new watchlist, select the three dots at the top right when on the Watchlist window, and select Create a new watchlist. Once this new watchlist is created, you will be able to add markets to it easily by searching or browsing for markets. Simply swipe on your desired market, click the “Add to” option, and select the watchlist of your choice, and hit Done. Do this for as many markets as you like, and each will be added to the corresponding watchlist. To check that you are satisfied with the markets that you have added to your watchlists, switch to the “Watchlists” tab to view each one.
How do I create a chart template?
While viewing a chart in portrait mode, tap the full-screen icon in the bottom left corner of the chart to access all of the features available to you. Then, scroll the toolbar on the top for more options, including the Save button for when you are finished customizing your template.
If you turn your phone sideways to switch to landscape mode, you will be presented with the full-screen chart and charting tools. Once you apply your indicators and you wish to save that set-up to a template, find the Save button with a cloud icon through the toolbar at the top. In either view, when you choose to save your template, enter a name for your new layout in the pop-up.
When you hit Save, the layout will be saved and shown under the cloud icon. To switch to a different layout or to create a new one, select the down arrow next to the cloud icon.
How do I see individual positions?
If you have more than one trade in the same market, the app will group those trades together in an amalgamated position for you in the Portfolio window. If you wish to see each constituent position as individual positions, simply tap on the trade which is labeled with the number of trades you hold in that market, and it will collapse to reveal each trade separately. Additionally, you can also use the stack button in the upper right corner to toggle this view on or off.
How do I adjust parameters on an indicator?
When viewing your chart and the applied indicators, you should see the name of your indicator at the top left of the chart, or at least an arrow with the indicator name, which you can expand to see the indicator name.
If you tap on the indicator name, the icon will expand with additional options, including the cogwheel for indicator settings. Select it to open the settings pop-up, adjust the settings as needed, and hit OK. Your indicator parameters will then be adjusted.
Why can't I see my positions on the chart?
If you have an open position or order on a particular market and you’re viewing a chart for that exact market, you should see special lines for your position or order. If you do not, make sure you’re not zoomed in too close on the chart and perhaps try a larger timeframe to make sure the level of your position is viewable. Also, in Chart Settings, ensure that Show Positions is enabled in both full-screen and simple chart view.
How can I trade off the chart?
On any full-screen FOREX.com chart, you can open a new position by tapping 'TRADE' to deal immediately or 'ORDER' to place an order. On smaller charts, simply select 'BUY' or 'SELL' to bring up the deal ticket.
You'll be able to see any open positions or orders on charts and close/delete them instantly. If you want to disable or amend this feature, you can do so in settings.
What is price tolerance?
To combat fast-moving markets, our price tolerance feature provides flexibility around fill proximity between the available market price quoted on the trading platform and the actual price at which the trade is executed. Should the rate at which your trade is ultimately executed falls outside the prevailing market rate by the amount of your specified price tolerance, that trade will be rejected by our system.
How can I adjust the price tolerance on my account?
To set your desired price tolerance, swipe on any market in the “Markets” or “Watchlists” tabs, then tap “More.” Select “Market Information” from here, then scroll down to “Preferences” and use the selector to update your price tolerance.
Alternatively, tap a market to open its details page. Select the “Info” tab, then scroll down to preferences and update your price tolerance.
I would like to practice using the app, but my demo has expired, how can I renew it?
Expired demo accounts cannot be renewed at this time.
Please reach out to our support team for assistance.
How do I download statements?
To access your statements, switch to the More window at the bottom and find “Statements” under My Trading History. In the new window that comes up, check to view statements and select your required date range. Then hit Search. All available statements for the specified date range will then be shown.
