FOREX.com trading - how to start & how to place orders
To start trading through FOREX.com on TradingView you need to do the following:
- log into TradingView with your credentials;
- go to www.tradingview.com/chart and open the Trading Panel;
- select FOREX.com as a broker and log in using a live or demo account.
Important note: Trading through Forex.com on TradingView is supported for customers who have ForexTrader accounts. MT4 account holders can login, however, cannot place trades (just like on Forex.com, MT4 accounts can log into ForexTrader, but cannot trade through it).
If you don’t have an account with FOREX.com yet, you can open one from here https://www.forex.com/en-us/open-an-account.
You’ll see 4 tabs after you log in – Positions, Orders, Account Summary and Notifications log. The Orders tab is split into several columns that display different order statuses for simplicity. A gray line from each column displays key values from the Account Summary.
A menu in the top right corner of the trading panel lets you adjust trading properties, disconnect or select another broker. Your account ID and account currency is displayed there as well.
You can place an order in several ways: through the Trading Panel, the Chart Context menu, the Chart “+” Sign menu, or through the Buy/Sell .
Once the order ticket is opened, you can set the Price, Stop Loss and Take Profit values using either pips or prices. You can also calculate the “amount” manually or by using the risk/reward ratio. In addition, you can set the duration of your order.
