Why did my trade open/close?

At the top of your trading platform click on the Report button to view your Combined Account Statement. On the statement the “Condition column indicates the order type that closed the trade. The “Created By” column indicates where the order originated. For example, if the trade was created via a market order from your login credentials, you will see “Mkt” in the “Condition” column and your account number will be listed in the “Created By” column. If trades were closed via Margin Call you will see “MC” in the “Condition” column and the FXCM server name will be listed in the “Created By” column.

Below is a key to common abbreviations: 

  • O = Open 
  • Mkt = Market Order 
  • C = Close 
  • S = Stop loss 
  • S(t) = Trailing Stop 
  • L = Limit 
  • SE = Stop Entry 
  • LE = Limit Entry 
  • MC = Margin Call
  • TX = Transfer
