  • How to place a trade

    In order to place a trade, you will first need to be authorised by ETX Capital (as a company which is authorised and regulated by the UK Financial Conduct Authority, client verification is needed before trading can commence). Once authorised, you will need to log-in and fund your account.

    After that, it depends on the platform which you’re using;

    ETX TraderPro

     

    • Select the product which you want to trade and click the ‘Trade’ button on the right hand side.
    • A trading ticket should open up, showing you the current levels at which you can either ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ the product, as well as allowing you to set the amount which you want to trade.
    • Once you are happy with the amount, click on the red button to ‘sell’ that product or the blue button to ‘buy’ it.

    ETX Binary

     

    • Clicking on the product you want to trade on automatically opens the trading ticket for the product in question.
    • Depending on the nature of the Binary option, you should see either ‘Call’ and ‘Put’ buttons or equivalent Up or Down buttons with numbers changing depending on the current price of the product.
    • You will also see a drop-down box which may give you a choice of expiration time for the trade. You will also be able to input the amount which you want to place on the trade – the pay-out calculator will show you your potential pay-out should your trade be successful.
    • When you are ready, click on the ‘Invest’ button to place the trade.

    ETX MT4

     

    • Click on the ‘New Order’ button in the top trading bar.
    • A new window will open. You can select the item you wish to trade by clicking on the ‘Symbol’ drop-down tab, as well as also selecting the amount you wish to trade and potential levels at which you want to insert a stop loss or take the profit.
    • You will then be able to either ‘Sell by Market’ (the red button) or ‘Buy by Market’ (the blue button).
