4. Select BUY or SELL position as your wish and set some parameters (Stop loss, Take profit, and Leverage). Then click ‘Set order’ to complete.

Once you complete, the cash amount allocated to the order will no longer be available for trading. A limit order will remain open until it is executed or you cancel it.

Please note that: sometimes, your trade will be executed not exactly at the target price but close to your target rate due to market conditions, especially during a high volatile market.
