Gross Account

Gross Account

The following types of trading accounts are available on the TickTrader platform: Net, Gross (Margin) and Cash (Exchange).

Gross and Net accounts are Margin accounts, which means that trading is performed using leverage. Leverage allows you to trade a larger amount of funds than is available on the account.

The key difference between Gross and Net accounts is that on Gross accounts, all positions opened on a financial instrument are separate operations. Each position is a separate record. You can open multiple positions, including opposite ones, on one financial instrument.

On Gross Account:

  • Stop Loss/Take Profit orders and Trailing Stop are available.
  • P/L is calculated separately for each position.
  • You can close positions using the Close position command.
  • When you reverse a position, the current position is closed and the opposite position of the same volume is opened.
