There are 8 main areas within the iPad Trader, which you should familiarize yourself. These are:
Within the Favorites area, you have the ability to customize instruments that you wish to be always viewed in this area. Selecting the options icon within the top left corner of the window, and selecting ‘Edit’ will give you the ability to alter or change any of your favorites that you want to appear.
A screen will open once clicking on the ‘Edit’ button. From here, you have the option to arrange, add, and delete Favorites. Holding the symbol on the right hand side of any currency pair and dragging up or down will allow you to move the position of that currency pair.
Clicking on the red delete symbol located towards the left of any currency trade will bring up the ‘Delete’ option. Select that button to confirm the removal of that currency pair from your favorites.
When selecting the ‘Add a new instrument‘ button, a new page will open featuring all Groups of instruments. Clicking on a group will bring you to a page listing all available instruments within that group. Clicking on the instrument listed will add that instrument to your favorites list. Once added you will notice a tick appear on the right hand side of your chosen instrument.
By Selecting the ‘Rates’ option your iPad will open a window which contains all available instruments, their bid and ask rates, daily high and low, last update time. From within the Rates section you have the ability to select any given Trading Instrument and open an order, to open a chart for your desired instrument, and to add and remove instruments to/from your Favorites.
The Positions section shows the order details of your open positions and pending orders, as well as allowing you to close an open position or modify an order.
