MetaTrader 5 FAQs

How to open an order ticket

Open a window and click New Order or simply use your hotkey, F9. Alternatively, right-click on the chart > Trading > New Order

Your order ticket window has three key fields:

  1. 1
    The Type field is where you can place an order at current market price (market execution) or submit an order for a certain price in the future (pending order).
  2. 2
    The volume field is where you input your trading volume. This is based on standard FX lots ($100,000 exposure and $10 of the base currency per pip).
  3. 3
    Add an automated order to exit your trade at a profit (take-profit) or loss (stop-loss).

How to modify or delete your order?

Right-click on your trade and a box will appear. Select Modify or Delete to modify the trade. You can modify the trade’s stop-loss or take-profit here too. This can be done in the first box by highlighting the price you wish to exit at, or the number of points away from market price you wish to set this order.
