Real-time netting uses First In, First Out (FIFO) netting – trades are closed in the order they were opened.
With real-time netting, you manage your net positions instead of individual trades. Individual trades can be seen in the new Trades dialog.
Take Profit & Stop Loss
Take profit and stop loss orders cannot be attached to individual trades. Independent take profit and stop loss orders can be placed instead (including in an OCO link) and managed separately — if you close a position, you must also cancel any previously placed orders.
That means with Real-time Netting enabled, clients cannot prevent the netting of buy and sell trades by attaching related orders. Sell trades will FIFO net with buy trades; and vice versa.
Open and Closed Margin P/L
With real-time netting enabled, Margin P/L is split into its Open and Closed components in Account Details.
Works with all instruments
Real-time netting is supported by all instruments – margin and cash-traded.
Works in all platforms
Real-time netting works in all platforms – SaxoTraderGO (desktop, phone, tablet), SaxoTraderPRO, SaxoTrader 2, Webconnect.
Enable Real Time Netting
Enable real-time netting on from Settings in any of the platforms. This is an opt-in feature (will not be enabled by default) which can be disabled by the client – thus returning to the standard EOD netting – at any time.
