Trading functions Smart Dom

Before you start trading, it is necessary to configure the Smart DOM module to suit your trading style.


1. For quick placement of orders, activate the One-Click Mode, which will enable entering orders with just one click (i.e., the system will not request a transaction confirmation).

2. In the Trading Account window, select your trading account.

3. Select the duration of orders (DAY- until the end of the trading session; GTC - until manually canceled).

4. Select the number of lots to trade.

5. If it is required to use an exit strategy when trading, select one of three exit strategies in the Strategy Settings line. *You can find information about the description and the settings of exit strategies here: Exit Strategy.

6. If you do not need the Simple Order Placing function, uncheck the box in front of this function since this option is enabled by default.
