FAQ

– What happens on my account if I have open positions at the time of the update?

At the moment of updating, the symbol name for your order, for example, EURUSD, will be updated to EURUSDi. This will not affect your trading on the account in any way.

– Which instruments will be available for trading on August 23?

After the market opening on August 23, you will be able to trade instruments with the “i” suffix. This applies to currency pairs and metals. For the rest of the instruments, no changes will occur.

– What if I trade using Expert Advisors?

If you have an Expert Advisor set up, say, for the EURUSD instrument, then after the update, you will need to install the EA again and add it to the EURUSDi chart. This can be done on the weekend of August 22, before the market open.

– Will these changes affect other account types?

No, they won’t.

– How to find out what account type I have?

The type of your trading account can be viewed in your Personal area in the “Trading” – “My accounts” section, in the “Type” column.
