WebTrader Guide

Start trade in a few minutes:

How do I know what my account balance is?

To check out your account balance, all you need to do is log in to your private account. Your account balance will be displayed at the top of the page.

 

How do I create a new order?

You can press F9 to bring up the 'Create Order' window or click on the icon above the watchlist on the left-hand side of the platform. You can also click on any instrument in the 'Watchlists,' select the 'New Order' icon or place an order directly from the Buy and Sell buttons.

 

How do I open a WebTrader account?

You can open an account in the Client Area efficiently and securely. Use the simple registration form to begin the process.

 

What instruments can I trade on WebTrader?

On the WebTrader platform, you can trade all the instruments available at XM, including stock indices, Forex, precious metals, and energies.

 

What is the margin call procedure for WebTrader?

Negative price movement can potentially lead to a margin call and the subsequent triggering of an automated margin close-out of positions. If market conditions are unfavorable to you, we will set a stop-out level to reduce your maximum loss. This means that we will set a threshold of margin value, below which positions are automatically closed. This stop out is set at 30% of the margin.

 

What are the limits of setting SL, TP, and TS?

You can set Stop Loss and Take Profit orders with no limits on all account types. SL and TP orders will still be active, even if your computer is switched off. The minimum Trailing Stop level is 1.5 pips or 15 points. It is possible to set only one trailing stop per order. It would be best if you had the WebTrader platform open to keep the trailing stop active.
