Our one-click trading feature allows you to open or close a trade with just a single click.
Once a trade size has been entered, just select the buy or sell price to send the order straight through for processing. This means that you won't be asked to confirm the order and it will be placed immediately.
It’s important to note that you will not have a chance to cancel the order once you have selected your buy or sell price, so please take care when using our one-click trading feature, as there is an increased possibility that you could unintentionally submit an order.
When '1-Click Trading' is activated, you will be able to enter a trade size manually into the price quote panel. Alternatively, you can choose a trade size from the built-in dropdown menu. Once you've specified a trade size, simply choose the buy or sell price to immediately place your order.
When activated, one-click trading is turned on for all price buttons by default within the Next Generation platform, including the quote panels. When you hover your mouse over any price button (excluding a quote panel), a one-click trading order ticket will appear, allowing you to enter a trade size. Once you've entered a trade size, select your buy or sell price to place the order. You can select to have one-click trading orders apply only to quote panels from the 'Order Settings' menu.
You are also able to close open positions or trades with a single touch by selecting the red close-out 'x' button in the 'Positions' window, under the 'Account' menu. Any pending orders can also be cancelled with a single 'click' in the orders window.
By default, your personal stop-loss order and take-profit order settings will be applied to your one-click market order. This can be disabled within the one-click trading section of order settings. It's important to note that if disabled, all one-click orders will be submitted without any stop-loss orders or take-profit orders attached, however these may be added later through the modify icon in the positions window.
When you place a market order using one-click trading, any advanced order settings, including 'Save Ticket Quantity', 'Boundaries', 'Custom Stop Order Triggering' and 'Forwards Settlement Behaviour', will be automatically inherited from your personally configured order settings for the relevant CMC Markets product.
Please make sure that you review, and if appropriate, update these settings before using one-click trading.
After you place or close an order using one-click trading, an execution alert will immediately appear in the top right of the platform, displaying the price at execution, size of trade, any associated stop-loss orders and/or take-profit orders and the realised profit or loss for any executed closing order. Please take time to read this to ensure your order has been executed as expected. This confirmation will automatically fade after a set period of time.
Once you activate '1-Click Trading' you can choose between three modes within the main toolbar including:
Single-click: A single left mouse click on the buy or sell price once will immediately place the order. When you hover your mouse over a price, the cursor will change to denote that a one-click order will be placed with a single click.
Double-click: A double left mouse click on the buy or sell price will immediately place the order. When you hover your mouse over a price the cursor will change to denote that a one-click order will be placed with a double click.
Locked: Selecting this mode will temporarily disable one-click trading. When this mode is selected, selecting any buy or sell price will bring up the full order ticket.
CMC Markets does not recommend the use of one-click trading for inexperienced traders. If you have any questions please contact our Customer Services team on +44 (0) 20 3003 8588.
