Menu :: Symbol mapping

It often happens that different brokers have available trading instruments with additional characters in their names. The situation becomes more complicated if several identical instruments are available on the account at once, which differ in additional symbols. For example, two instruments with the names EURUSD and EURUSD# are available at once.

In this case, the service will not be able to independently choose which instrument to open a position on. The subscriber must match the name of the provider's instrument with the required one.

This is done in the "Symbol mapping" window.
To compare the provider's instrument and your broker you need:

  1. Enter the name of the provider tool in the field "at the provider"
  2. Specify your broker's instrument from the "your symbol" list
  3. Click Add button
After that, all positions on this provider's instrument will be copied to the corresponding instrument of your broker specified by you.
