Placing Orders using MT4

Naturally the heart and soul of Metatrader 4 functionality is placing orders. There are 2 kinds of orders that can be placed in MT4: Orders meant for instant execution and orders meant for execution at a future point under certain conditions. Completing any trade consists of two parts opening a position and closing a position.

A position can be opened with 3 basic order types. There are numerous variations to these but the key 3 order types are market, limit and stop. The orders can be used as entry orders to get in to a position and they can be used as exit orders to get out of a position. In Metatrader 4 you can enter the market or exit the market with either immediate orders or pending orders.
