I have placed a take profit order and was triggered with loss. Why?

You should note that the take profit for a long position is placed above the prevailing market price. As a result, if you place a take profit after you open a position when it is already in a loss, take profit will act as a stop loss and your position will be closed with a loss (i.e. take profit is placed below the opening price in this case but above the prevailing market price).

The price on the chart is different than the price appearing on my trading terminal. Why?

The charts show the Bid price by default. A Buy position is opened with the Ask price and closed with the Bid price. You have to add the spread on the Bid price to find the Ask price. Therefore the difference in price is due to the spread.

My order was Stop-Out. Why?

You order will be Stop-Out, when the margin level (Equity/Used Margin) goes below 5%. This will trigger a stop-out and your positions will start closing starting from the most unprofitable.
We ahve the right to begin closing positions starting from most unprofitable when the margin level falls below 10%. If Margin level is equal or less than 5%, all positions are automatically closed at market price.

I am getting a “Trade Context Busy” signal on my trading platform. What does this mean?

This can happen when you have given to your trading platform an additional instruction before it has completed an earlier task. This can happen in cases where multiple mouse clicks or a hyperactive Expert Advisor.
This can be resolved by restarting your trading platform.

I am getting “Re-quotes”. What does this mean?

When there is a high volatility in the market, prices are rapidly changing. Under this scenario, we need to offer you the new latest market price. In such an event, you can either accept the new re-quoting or just reject the new price and cancel the execution of the transaction.
Another possible reason for getting re-quote could be the possibility of having a slow or bad internet connection which can delay the transmission of orders; implying that on your trading platform you are viewing old prices instead current market prices.
