Important note: The Ethereum Merge event on the 15th of September 2022 may have an effect on trading conditions and the opening and closing of ETHUSD positions. Exness will inform affected clients who have open orders or traded ETHUSD in the last 90 days from the Merge if there are any changes.
Before you start trading, you’ll need to add trading instruments to your MarketWatch window.
When you right-click in the MarketWatch window, and choose Symbols, you’ll see some folders or symbol groups. For each of our account types, both Standard and Professional, a different set of trading instruments is available for trading, which can be found in the different symbol groups.
Let’s take a look at them:
|Account type||Symbol group||Instruments|
*Indices trading on Standard MT4 accounts is only available for select account currencies. For details on the exact account currencies, please follow the link for details on trading with indices.
You might also see other symbol groups, such as Forex_Indicator (instruments with indicative quotes that are used as exchange rates for accounts with different account currencies) and MBC (instruments with indicative quotes that are used for conversion on metal-currency accounts). Symbols from these groups are not available for trading, as they are used solely as indicators.
The NYMEX symbol group contains CFD on futures instruments, which are currently not available for trading. The same applies for the Forex_Fixed group of symbols.
You might have noticed that a lot of our trading instruments have suffixes. A suffix that follows a trading instrument, e.g. EURUSDm, indicates:
- The account type the instrument can be traded on
- Execution type
- The symbol group it belongs to
This table displays the suffixes currently used:
|Suffix||Account type||Execution type||Example||Symbol group in MT4/5|
- Standard Plus
- Raw Spread
|- m||- Standard||Market execution||EURUSDm||Forex_group|
|- c||- Standard Cent||Market execution||EURGBPc||Forex_Pairs|
|- Zero||Market execution||XAUUSDz||Forex|
*This suffix is only used on select trading servers at this time; it is also traded without a suffix.
