A position should be closed as you achieve your profit target or the trading order is ineffective. To close a trading order on eToro, follow the instructions below:

1. Log into your eToro account and click on ‘Portfolio’ on the left side of the screen.

Here you will see all the instruments you are currently trading.

2. Click on the relevant instrument to see the breakdown into individual positions.

3. Click on the red ‘X’ next to the position you wish to close.

4. Click ‘Close Trade’.

Your request will be only executed during market hours, so if you close the orders at the closed market, the order will be displayed as “Pending Close”.

Before the market opens, you could cancel your request if you change your mind.
