To trade a symbol simply double click on the symbol you want from the Market Watch, or right click on it and choose “Trade Symbol” from the pop-up menu. A window called New Order will be displayed, containing four parts:

To close an open position, double click on it in the Trade window, or check the Close selected positions check box in the trade window, or click New Order after selecting the desired position, the system will then display the same New Order window. You can also monitor the close position information and the profit/loss in the third part of this window. The green upwards arrow is for increasing the prices range from the top and the red downwards arrow is to increase the prices range from the down.
After choosing the lots amount that you want to close from the Order Information part, click the button at the market price that you want to close your position on. Your order will be added to the Pending Orders window, until the price is done and the market maker accepts it.
Using this option you can close two hedged open positions; i.e.: To close an open position with another one, double click on it in the Trade window, or right click on it and chose Close/New Order after selecting the position, the system will generate the same New Order window.

Managing positions is a powerful feature of VertexFX that allows you to enter and manage your positions.
There are currently two different types of orders supported in VertexFX:
An order used to limit losses on a trade and is executed near the market rate. For a buy order, the order rate will be higher than the current market rate. If it is a sell order, the order rate will be lower than the current market rate.
An order that is used to take the profit on a trade. For a buy order, the order rate must be lower than the current offer rate. If it is a sell order the order rate must be higher than the current bid rate.
To enter an order, select the position you want to set SL and/or TP orders, and then click Manage SL/TP in the Terminal window, the system will then generate a window called Manage Position. Enter lots amount, SL and/or TP values, then click on Submit.
