Modifying of Pending Orders

Modifying of Pending Orders

When working at the market, one often needs to modify or delete the placed pending order. To do so, one has to execute the pending order context menu command of "Modify or Delete Order" or double-click with the left mouse button on the pending order status bar in the "Terminal – Trade" window. The window for order managing will open. New price of the pending order triggering, new levels of Stop Loss and Take Profit, as well as expiry time of the order can be set in this window. After the order has been modified, one has to press the "Modify" button.

Attention: Setting of zero values for Stop Loss and Take Profit equals to disabling of these orders.

If the pending order has been successfully modified, the values of the corresponding fields in the "Terminal – Trade" window will be changed. If the "Show trade levels" option in the terminal settings has been enabled, the pending order levels and those of Stop Loss and Take Profit attached to it will be shifted correspondingly in the chart, as well.
