Getting started FAQs
How do I place a trade?
Click or tap on the 'Sell' or 'Buy' price and an order ticket will appear. Choose between 'Market Order', 'Limit Order', or 'Stop Entry Order', input the trade size and then hit enter, add any 'Stop Loss' and 'Take Profit' levels and then place your trade.
On our mobile apps you can swipe from left to right anywhere on the order ticket to reveal a chart and use price sliders to set trade levels directly from the chart. Tablets use the extra screen space to display the chart to the left of the order ticket with your relevant order price and risk management levels shown against historical price action. Remember that information relating to past performance does not indicate future performance.

Your account number can be found in the top left-hand corner of your platform screen. You can also find your account number in the email that you received confirming your account is open.
How can I switch accounts?
On the iPhone and iPad, select the 'More' button, and on Android devices go to the side menu, and choose 'Switch Accounts'.
