Where to find your overall profit or loss on a position

This will depend on the trading platform which you are using:

ETX TraderPro

  • Look for the ‘Open Positions’ tab on the lower half of your screen. You will see a list of your current positions, including the date and time they were opened, the quantity ‘bought’ or ‘sold’, the margin reserved and the price of the product in question at the open of the trade as well as its current price.
  • The ‘P/L’ column next to it shows the current level of profit or loss. If the trade is currently in profit, the amount shown will be in white. If the position is currently trading at a loss, the figure will be shown in red. On the right there are buttons giving the trader the option of seeing a product chart, creating a new alert, trading further on the product in question, or closing the trade.

ETX MT4

  • The open trades can be found in the terminal window of the MT4 platform. This is most often found if you look at the bottom of the screen. Should it not be visible on your platform the terminal window can be added to your view by clicking 'view' in the menu at the top. By selecting the 'trade' tab you are able to see your open trades, as well as your current account balance.
  • You will see the relevant details of your trades (time opened, type, size, symbol, price). You can click on a specific trade and a window will open, giving you options which include allowing you to close the trade.
