How to Open Trades

how to open trades to OANDA fxTrade
  1. Sign in to fxTrade.

  2. Open the Order window.
    Click in the Quote panel over the currency pair you want to trade.

  3. Make sure the Market Order tab is selected.
    (We talk about limit orders here.)

  4. Click Buy or Sell.

    Select another pair from the list if you want to change it.

  6. Type the number of units you want to trade.

  7. Click Submit.
