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 Binary

  • Look for the ‘Open Positions’ tab on the lower half of your screen. You will see a list of your current positions, including the option type, the asset in question as well as the time the position was opened and the price at which it was opened, the amount put into the trade, its current status and a clock counting down to its expiry time.
  • It then shows you the current pay-out you can expect if the trade remains in its current position – and in some cases, you’ll also see the amount and percentage you’ll receive if you choose to close the trade early, which you can do by clicking either the ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ button on the right  hand side of the open 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.

  • Why was my Order to Open filled at the wrong level?

    Sometimes it is not possible for your stop or limit order to be transacted at the exact price you have specified.  This may happen when the market moves very quickly or is very illiquid. In these cases, your order may be transacted at a level different to the one you have specified.  The difference in levels is called 'slippage' and will be determined by us on a fair and reasonable basis. Unless agreed, please remember that Stop Loss orders are not guaranteed. For further information please view our Terms and Conditions.
