How to place a Pending Orders


How Many Pending Orders in FBS MT4

Unlike instant execution orders, where a trade is placed at the current market price, pending orders allow you to set orders that are opened once the price reaches a relevant level, chosen by you. There are four types of pending orders available , but we can group them to just two main types:
  • Orders expecting to break a certain market level
  • Orders expecting to bounce back from a certain market level
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners

Buy Stop

The Buy Stop order allows you to set a buy order above the current market price. This means that if the current market price is $20 and your Buy Stop is $22, a buy or long position will be opened once the market reaches that price.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners

Sell Stop

The Sell Stop order allows you to set a sell order below the current market price. So if the current market price is $20 and your Sell Stop price is $18, a sell or ‘short’ position will be opened once the market reaches that price.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners

Buy Limit

The opposite of a buy stop, the Buy Limit order allows you to set a buy order below the current market price. This means that if the current market price is $20 and your Buy Limit price is $18, then once the market reaches the price level of $18, a buy position will be opened.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners

Sell Limit

Finally, the Sell Limit order allows you to set a sell order above the current market price. So if the current market price is $20 and the set Sell Limit price is $22, then once the market reaches the price level of $22, a sell position will be opened on this market.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners

Opening Pending Orders

You can open a new pending order simply by double-clicking on the name of the market on the Market Watch module. Once you do so, the new order window will open and you will be able to change the order type to Pending order.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners
Next, select the market level at which the pending order will be activated. You should also choose the size of the position based on the volume.

If necessary, you can set an expiration date (‘Expiry’). Once all these parameters are set, select a desirable order type depending on whether you would like to go long or short and stop or limit and select the ‘Place’ button.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners
As you can see, pending orders are very powerful features of MT4. They are most useful when youre not able to constantly watch the market for your entry point, or if the price of an instrument changes quickly, and you don’t want to miss the opportunity.

How to close Orders in FBS MT4

To close an open position, click the ‘x’ in the Trade tab in the Terminal window.

Using Stop Loss, Take Profit and Trailing Stop in FBS MT4


One of the keys to achieving success in financial markets over the long term is prudent risk management. That’s why stop losses and take profits should be an integral part of your trading.

So let’s have a look how to use them on our MT4 platform to ensure you know how to limit your risk and maximise your trading potential.

Setting Stop Loss and Take Profit

The first and the easiest way to add Stop Loss or Take Profit to your trade is by doing it right away, when placing new orders.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners
To do this, simply enter your particular price level in Stop Loss or Take Profit fields. Remember that Stop Loss will be executed automatically when the market moves against your position (hence the name: stop losses), and Take Profit levels will be executed automatically when the price reaches your specified profit target. This means that you’re able to set your Stop Loss level below the current market price and Take Profit level above current market price.

It’s important to remember that a Stop Loss (SL) or a Take Profit (TP) is always connected to an open position or a pending order. You can adjust both once your trade has been opened and you’re monitoring the market. It’s a protective order to your market position, but of course they are not necessary to open a new position. You always can add them later, but we highly recommend to always protect your positions*.

Adding Stop Loss and Take Profit Levels

The easiest way to add SL/TP levels to your already opened position is by a using trade line on the chart. To do so, simply drag and drop the trade line up or down to specific level.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners
Once you’ve entered SL/TP levels, the SL/TP lines will appear on the chart. This way you can also modify SL/TP levels simply and quickly.

You can also do this from the bottom ‘Terminal’ module as well. To add or modify SL/TP levels, simply right-click on your open position or pending order, and choose ‘Modify or delete order’.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners
The order modification window will appear and now you’re able to enter/modify SL/TP by the exact market level, or by defining the points range from the current market price.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners


Trailing Stop


Stop Losses are intended for reducing losses when the market moves against your position, but they can help you lock in your profits as well.

While that may sound a bit counterintuitive at first, its actually very easy to understand and master.

Let’s say you’ve opened a long position and the market moves in the right direction, making your trade a profitable one at present. Your original Stop Loss, which was placed at a level below your open price, can now be moved to your open price (so you can break even) or above the open price (so you are guaranteed a profit).

To make this process automatic, you can use a Trailing Stop. This can be a really useful tool for your risk management, particularly when price changes are rapid or when you’re unable to constantly monitor the market.

As soon as the position turns profitable, your Trailing Stop will follow the price automatically, maintaining the previously established distance.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners
Following the example above, please bear in mind, however, that your trade needs to be running a profit large enough for the Trailing Stop to move above your open price, before your profit can be guaranteed.

Trailing Stops (TS) are attached to your opened positions, but it’s important to remember that if you have a trailing stop on MT4, you need to have the platform open for it to be successfully executed.

To set a Trailing Stop, right-click the open position in the ‘Terminal’ window and specify your desired pip value of distance between the TP level and the current price in the Trailing Stop menu.
How to Trade at FBS for Beginners
Your Trailing Stop is now active. This means that if prices change to the profitable market side, TS will ensure the stop loss level follows the price automatically.

Your Trailing Stop can easily be disabled by setting ‘None’ in the Trailing Stop menu. If you want to quickly deactivate it in all opened positions, just select ‘Delete All’.

As you can see, MT4 provides you with plenty of ways to protect your positions in just a few moments.

*Whilst Stop Loss orders are one of the best ways to ensure your risk is managed and potential losses are kept to acceptable levels, they don’t provide 100% security.

Stop losses are free to use and they protect your account against adverse market moves, but please be aware that they cannot guarantee your position every time. If the market becomes suddenly volatile and gaps beyond your stop level (jumps from one price to the next without trading at the levels in between), it’s possible your position could be closed at a worse level than requested. This is known as price slippage.

Guaranteed stop losses, which have no risk of slippage and ensure the position is closed out at the Stop Loss level you requested even if a market moves against you, are available for free with a basic account.

Please, kindly be reminded that according to the Customer Agreement:
For the long-term strategies (the deal which is open for more than 2 days), FBS may charge a fixed fee for the total number of days during which the order was opened, the fee is fixed and determined as the value of 1 point of the transaction in US dollars, multiplied by the size of the currency pair swap point of the order. This fee is not an interest and depends on whether the order is open to buy or sell.

By opening a Swap-free account with FBS, the client agrees that the company may debit the fee from his/her trading account at any time.

What is spread?

There are 2 types of currency prices at Forex - Bid and Ask. The price we pay to buy the pair is called Ask. The price, at which we sell the pair, is called Bid.

Spread is the difference between these two prices. In other words, it is a commission you pay to your broker for every transaction.

SPREAD = ASK – BID

The floating type of spreads is used in FBS Trader:

  • Floating spread – the difference between ASK and BID prices fluctuates in correlation with the market conditions.
  • Floating spreads usually increase during important economic news and the bank holidays when the amount of liquidity in the market declines. When the Market is calm they can be lower than the fixed ones.

What is the difference between MT4 and MT5?

Though many may think that MetaTrader5 is just an upgraded version of MetaTrader4, these two platforms are different and each better serves particular purposes.

Let’s compare these two platforms:

MetaTrader4

MetaTrader5

Language

MQL4

MQL5

Expert Advisor

Types of pending orders

Timeframes

21

Built-in indicators

38

Built-in economic calendar

Custom symbols for analysis

Details and Trading window in Market Watch

Ticks data export

Multi-thread

64-bit architecture for EAs



MetaTrader4 trading platform has a simple and easily understandable trading interface and mostly used for Forex trading.

MetaTrader5 trading platform has a slightly different interface and gives the possibility to trade stocks and futures.
In comparison with MT4, it has a deeper tick and chart history. With this platform, a trader can use Python for Market analysis and even log in to the Personal Area and perform financial operations (deposit, withdrawal, internal transfer) without leaving the platform. More than that, there’s no need to remember the server number on MT5: it has only two servers - Real and Demo.

Which MetaTrader is better? You can decide it for yourself.
If you are only at the beginning of your way as a trader, we would recommend you to start with MetaTrader4 trading platform due to its simplicity.
But if you are an experienced trader, who, for example, needs more features for analysis, the MetaTrader5 suits you the most.

Wish you successful trading!

I deposited via card. How can I withdraw funds now?

We would like to remind you, that Visa/Mastercard is a payment system, that allows only a refund of the deposited funds.

This means that you can withdraw via card only the sum not exceeding the sum of your deposit (up to 100% of the initial deposit can be withdrawn back to the card).

The amount over the initial deposit (profit) can be withdrawn to other payment systems.

Also, this means that withdrawal should be processed proportionally to the deposited sums.

For example:

You deposited via credit/debit card $10, then $20, then $30.
You will need to withdraw back to this card $10 + withdrawal fee, $20 + withdrawal fee, then $30 + withdrawal fee.

Please, kindly pay attention to the fact that if you deposited via credit/debit card and via another payment system, you need to withdraw back to the card first:

Withdrawal via card is of the top priority.


I’ve deposited via virtual card. How can I withdraw?

Before you withdraw funds back to the virtual card you deposited with, you need to confirm that your card can receive international transfers.
An official confirmation with a card number is necessary.

We consider as confirmation:
- Your bank statement, showing that you received transfers from third parties to your card before.
If the statement shows only the bank account, please attach proof that the card in question is connected to this bank account;

- Any SMS notification, e-mail, official letter, or screenshot of live chat with your bank manager which mentions the exact card number and specifies that this card can receive transfers;

What if my card doesn’t accept incoming funds?

In this case, according to the instructions above, you will need to provide us with confirmation that the card doesnt accept incoming funds. Once the confirmation is successfully accepted from our side, you will be able to withdraw funds (deposited funds + profit) via any electronic payment system available in your country.


Why was my withdrawal request rejected?

Please, take into consideration that according to the Customer Agreement: a client can withdraw funds from his/her account only to those payment systems which have been used for the deposit.

In case you made a withdrawal request via the payment system that differs from the payment system you used for deposit, your withdrawal will be rejected.

Also, please, kindly be reminded that you can monitor the status of your financial requests in the Transaction History. There you can see the reason for rejection as well.

Kindly note that if you have open orders while making a withdrawal request, your request will be automatically rejected with the comment "Insufficient funds".


I have not received my card withdrawal yet

We would like to remind you that Visa/Mastercard is a payment system that allows only a refund of the deposited funds.

This means that you can withdraw via card only the sum of your deposit.

One of the key reasons that a card refund takes as long as it does is the number of steps involved in the refund process. When you initiate a refund, as when you return merchandise to a store, the seller requests a refund by beginning a new transaction request on the card network. The card company must receive this information, check it against your purchase history, confirm the merchants request, clear the refund with its bank, and transfer the credit to your account. The cards billing department must then issue a statement that shows the refund as a credit, which serves as the final step in the process. Each step is an opportunity for delays due to human or computer error, or due to waiting for a billing cycle to elapse. That is why sometimes refunds take more than 1 month!

Please, kindly be informed that usually withdrawals via card are processed within 3-4 days.

If you didnt receive your funds within this period, you can contact us in chat or via e-mail and request withdrawal confirmation.


Why was my withdrawal amount reduced?

Most likely your withdrawal has been reduced to match the deposit amount.

We would like to remind you that Visa/Mastercard is a payment system that allows only a refund of the deposited funds.
This means that withdrawal should be processed proportionally to the deposited sums.

For example:

You deposited via credit/debit card $10, then $20, then $30.
You will need to withdraw back to this card $10 + withdrawal fee, $20 + withdrawal fee, then $30 + withdrawal fee.

You can withdraw the amount exceeding the total amount of deposit made via card (your profit) to any electronic payment system available in your Personal Area.

If your balance has become less than your total card deposit amount during the trading, dont worry - you still will be able to withdraw your funds. In this case, one of your card deposits will be refunded partially.


I see the "Insufficient funds" comment

Kindly note that if you have open trades while making a withdrawal request, and your Equity is less than the withdrawal amount, your request will be automatically rejected with the comment "Insufficient funds".
