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. 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. 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. Add an automated order to exit your trade at a profit (take-profit) or loss (stop-loss).
