Account Management FAQs

Where can I see my statements and account history?

You receive daily and monthly statements by email. Additionally, you can download your trade history reports from the MT4 trade terminal directly.

The dealing software tracks all trading activity in real time, allowing clients to view current open positions, real-time profit and loss, margin availability, account balances and all historical transaction details directly on-screen. In addition, clients can access their account statements by right-clicking in the Account History tab and selecting their time frame.

What is the difference between Balance and Equity?

Balance: When you have no open positions, balance is the amount of money you have in your account. For example, when you have $5,000 in your account and you have no open position, your account balance is $5,000.

Equity: Equity is your account balance plus the floating profit/loss of your open positions: Equity = Balance + Floating Profit/Loss. For example, when you have open positions and they are $1,500 in profit in total, then your account equity is your account balance plus $1,500. If your positions were $1,500 in negative, then your account equity would be your account balance minus $1,500.
