Question:How to trade(order a position) on MT5 (MetaTrader5) trading platform?


A market order is an instruction to open a position at the current market price.

There are many ways to place a market order in the MT5 terminal.

If you like to execute an order(open a position) at the current market price, but not pending order, please refer to following 5 methods to do it.

This “One Click Trading” function can be used on each price chart directly, and you can place an order(long and short) by just clicking the button.

The order will be executed at the market price with no other parameters set(such as pending orders).
