How to Create a Market Order

FXCM's Trading Station Mobile platform provides order controls for manual trading. Learn how to set your trade size, preset stop and limit orders, and select control options during fast moving market moments.

When you're ready to create an order, tap on the Sell or Buy price for the instrument you wish to trade. Your selection can be confirmed here. Next, enter a trade size and submit the market order. Alternatively you can select an instrument here to activate it, and then tap Buy or Sell. This method provides you with more control over the details of your order.

For example, if you want to ensure that your order will only execute at a particular price or range of prices, select Market Range. And then define the range in Pips. Otherwise, choose At Market. This ensures that your order executes and it will do so at FXCM's best available price. You can also create a limit and a stop order with the option to have your stop order trail the market price. When you have everything in place, tap here to submit your order.
