Question:How to place orders/trade on cTrader trading platform?


There are many ways to create a new order in cTrader though, here we will introduce two different ways to place orders on cTrader trading platform.

You may click on ‘cTrader’ on the main menu and select ‘New Order’ as below.

A new window will appear which will allow you to create a new market order, limit order or stop order, to select the instrument you wish to trade and to set stop-loss and take-profit levels.

Alternatively, you can press F9 to bring up the ‘Create Order’ window, or click on the icon in the quick links menu on the top right-hand side of the platform.

2. One click order from ‘Market Watch’

You can also place an order by clicking ‘Buy’ or ‘Sell’ from either the ‘Market Watch’ window on the left-hand side of the platform, or the ‘Chart Preferences Menu’ at the top of the chart being monitored.

In this case, your order will be filled instantly at the current market price by just one clicking on it.

So you may want to be careful with your mouse movement, otherwise, you could see a nightmare by mistakenly ordering positions.

If you don’t prefer ordering with “one click”, then you can also change the setting from “Preference”→”QuickTrade Settings” as below.
