I just posted a message and stated that I was unable to find the 'net off' and the 'force open'. What I meant to say was how you I use them?

Force open is also known as Hedging mode, for example you have a long trade open but price turns against you but you consider this to be temporary so with force open you open an equal size trade in the opposite direction and so your profit/loss total remains fixed until price turns again back in you favour when you then close out the hedge trade.

You would use the net off if you had an open position and want to close it with a stop order in the opposite direction (a standard stop loss) or if you wanted to scale out with a series of smaller stop orders at various target levels.

Hi, not sure what's wrong there, do the order level sliders come up on the chart and what happens if you move the stop up and down? Also if a live account check what happens on demo and if demo account check on live.

    • Volume profile, depth of market, orderbook, VWAP, VPVR, VPSV... all the basic things needed which for some reason are disabled.. seems odd that you don't want your clients to see this information? Even FXCM, OANDA, Pepperstone, ICmarkets, FXPRO & many more not listed all allow you to see this and have access to this vital information. ProRealTime v11.. It's about 2 years overdue now... frustrating not only having out of date features but more so when trying to back test things as it's limited on v10.3 to a maximum of 100k units.. that means with every day passing, I lose a day's worth of data.. PRT v11 allows you to have 1m unit backtest.. Also.. Custom, multiple take profits.. allow me to set a desired amount, for example.. ** points or **% at 10 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 20 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 30 pips away from entry ** points or **% at 40 pips away from entry.. Have a look at cTrader.. they do a perfect example of this, in advanced take profit section.
