Getting Started General The Multi Terminal is a part of the MetaTrader 4 online trading

Getting Started

General

The Multi Terminal is a part of the MetaTrader 4 online trading system. It is intended for:

managing a set of client accounts; performing trade operations; controlling and handling open positions and pending orders; receiving quotes and news in the online mode.

The Multi Terminal can operate under Microsoft Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/2003/Vista. Hardware requirements are limited to software ones.

Security System

Data exchange between the Terminal and the server is performed by encryption based on 128-bit keys. This is sufficient to ensure security of trading. However, besides this system, the Terminal allows to use one more system: An advanced security system based on a digital signature algorithm of RSA. It is an asymmetric encryption algorithm that implies presence of a public and a private key. The public key can be freely distributed and used for checking the authenticity of a message signed with a private key. Knowing of the public key is guaranteed not to be possible basis for decoding the private one within an acceptable period of time.

The Advanced security system is based on electronic digital signatures that can be enabled on the server.

If the Advanced security system is enabled for a trading account, to use a different computer, it is

necessary for the user to transfer the generated RSA keys into the computer the user intends to use. The keys represent files with KEY extension and are stored in the /profiles folder.

If either key has been lost or damaged, please report this to support.

Live Update

A live update system (LiveUpdate) is built into the Terminal. It allows the user to be informed and install newer versions of software. This system is always enabled.

The Terminal checks for new versions of the program when it connects to the server. If a new version has been discovered, a new window named "Live Update" will appear. The client will be asked to download the update(s). To download these updates, the "Start" button must be select. The updating process and the list of files to be downloaded can be observed in this window. After the updates have been downloaded, the new version of the Terminal will be automatically installed and restarted. Please note, if there is no connection to the server, the live updating process will not start

Accounts To make full use of the Multi Terminal , multiple accounts are needed. Users

It is necessary to select one of available servers from this list. The Multi Terminal is bound to Alpari servers, meaning only the servers shown can be selected.

Data Centre (access points)

Date Centres are a part of the trading platform and represent specialized proxy servers. They allow saving common traffic: the same quotes and news are given to several Terminals at the same time. Access points are located between the server and a Terminal. One server can have several access points through which all traders will connect to it. After a Terminal has been installed, connection to data centres is set up automatically. It is highly recommended not to change anything in this window. Incorrect settings of connections to Data Centres can be the reason for no connection between the Terminal and the server.

After that, it will be possible to start working. If an error message appears, please ensure all the data is entered correctly.

Proxy Server Connection

A proxy server is an intermediate between the trader's computer and the trading server. It is mostly used by internet providers or by local networks. If a connection problem occurs, you should turn to your systems administrator or to the internet provider. If a proxy is used, the Terminal must be set up in a corresponding way. Setting of "Enable proxy server" checkbox will enable proxy server support and "

parameters should be specified (these data can be given by the system administrator or the internet

provider):

After the parameters have been specified, it is recommended to press the "Test" button to check how the settings work. If they have been tested successfully, the "OK" button must be selected in order to make the settings effective. Error message occur if the proxy server was set up incorrectly. Here please refer to the system administrator or internet provider.

Personal data

When adding accounts it is necessary to specify login (account number) and password. After an account has been added and if "Keep personal settings and data at start-up" option is enabled, its password will be stored at the hard disk. When connecting the account to the server, this password will be used to connect the account automatically. If the option is disabled, a password must be entered manually at each connection of the account. Also, all personal mail, received by the internal mail system, will be deleted if the option is disabled.

News

The Terminal allows for news to feed through. News will filter through once a connection is established with the server.

Symbol by Default

The "Symbol by default" option allows the user to define the symbol value when a order window is open. The "Last used" parameter means that the symbol of the latest trade operation will be set automatically. For the same symbol to be set repeatedly, the "Default" parameter must be enabled, and the necessary symbol must be chosen from the list.

Lots by Default

The initial amount of lots can be defined ("Lots by default" option): "Last used" is a parameter used in the previous trade, and "by default" is a constant, manually set value.

Lots Allocation

When placing new orders, it is necessary to specify the total lots allocation for all accounts. The specified total lots will be distributed among accounts according to the specified lots allocation method:

Predefined volume: It will be necessary to specify manually the lots amount for each order when placing the order, later this predefined volume will apply at placing orders. Total volume for each order: The total lots will apply at placing each order. Equal parts: The total lots will be allocated among all orders in equal parts. By equity ratio: The total lots will be allocated among orders based on the ratio between equities of accounts. By free margin ratio: The total lots will be allocated among orders on the ratio between free margins of accounts.

Please note: When the total volume is allocated between orders on accounts with different deposit

Please note: When the total volume is allocated between orders on accounts with different deposit currencies based on equity ratio or free margin ratio, the equity or free margin is adduced to the Summary Currency that can be chosen in the context menus in the Accounts panel and of the Orders or History tabs.

The "Lots Allocation" option allows defining the method to allocate lots among accounts at placing orders: "the last used value" parameter used in the preceding operation, or "by default" lots allocation method defined manually.

Deviation

The symbol price can change within the order time. As a result, the price of the prepared order will not correspond with the market one, and the position will not be opened. The "Deviation" option helps to avoid this. Maximum permissible deviation from the value given in the order can be specified in this field. If prices do not correspond, the program will modify the order by allowing opening a new position.

Trading Order Types Users can control and manage open/close orders/positions through several types of orders.

Trading

Order Types

Users can control and manage open/close orders/positions through several types of orders. The following orders can be used in the Terminal: Market order, Pending order, Stop Loss and Take Profit.

Market Order

Market order is an order to buy or sell a financial instrument at the current price. Execution of this order results in opening a trade position. Financial instruments are bought at ASK price and sold at BID price. Stop Loss and Take Profit orders (described below) can be attached to a market order. Execution mode of market orders depends on the security traded.

Pending Order

A Pending order is an order that allows the user to buy or sell a symbol at a pre-defined price in the

future. This type of orders is used for opening a trade position provided the future quotes reach the pre-

defined level. There are four types of pending orders available in the Terminal:

Buy Limit: Buy provided the future "ASK" price is equal to the pre-defined value. The current price level

is higher than the value of the placed order. Orders of this type are usually placed in anticipation of that

the symbol price, having fallen to a certain level, will increase;

Buy Stop: Buy provided the future "ASK" price is equal to the pre-defined value. The current price level

is lower than the value of the placed order. Orders of this type are usually placed in anticipation of that

the symbol price, having reached a certain level, will keep on increasing;

Sell Limit: Sell provided the future "BID" price is equal to the pre-defined value. The current price level is lower than the value of the placed order. Orders of this type are usually placed in anticipation of that the symbol price, having increased to a certain level, will fall;

Sell Stop: Sell provided the future "BID" price is equal to the pre-defined value. The current price level is higher than the value of the placed order. Orders of this type are usually placed in anticipation of that the symbol price, having reached a certain level, will keep on falling.

Stop Losses and Take Profits can be attached to a pending order. After a pending

Stop Losses and Take Profits can be attached to a pending order. After a pending order has triggered, its Stop Loss and Take Profit levels will be attached to the open position automatically.

Stop Loss

This order is used for minimizing losses if the symbol price has started to move in an unprofitable direction. If the symbol price reaches this level, the position will be closed automatically. The Multi Terminal checks long positions with the BID price for the meeting of this order provisions, and it does with ASK price for short positions.

Take Profit

Take Profit order is intended for gaining profit when the symbol price has reached a certain level. Execution of this order results in closing a position. MT4 checks long positions with BID price for meeting of this order provisions, and it does with ASK price for short positions.

Please note: Stop loss and Take profit orders can only be set for existing open orders.

Types of Execution There are three order execution modes in the Multi Terminal : Instant

Types of Execution

There are three order execution modes in the Multi Terminal:

Instant Execution

In this mode the order is executed at the price offered on screen, if the price is valid it will be executed, if not the user will be re-quoted.

Request Execution

In this mode high volume orders will be request executed.

Execution by Market

In this order execution mode, there are no re quotes, when the user either opens or closes a position the order will be executed at the best price available.

Please note: The price may sometimes differ from the price seen on the platform as the price may have moved from the last market snapshot or the key desired volume maybe larger than the best tradable Bid/Offer.

Please note: In request execution mode, the proposed quotes will only be active for a few seconds. If no decision is made during this time the user will have to try closing the position again. The Multi Terminal allows partial close of the open position. Users can define the value by selecting a smaller volume size than the current open volume.

Note: When changing volume size for partial closure, please remember to hit the ENTER key to apply changes.

Close by Order

An opposite position on the same financial instrument is considered as counter position to the given one.

Counter positions can be closed using the "Close By" tab. In this tab, the user can close a position by a counter position for all or selected accounts managed. Each connected account, for which there are open counter positions, is represented as a list. Any position the User desires to remain open should be un-ticked in the list. The position to be closed must be first selected in the account list. The user then needs to check a counter position in the list of opposite positions and select "Close".

If counter positions have different amounts of volume, the two positions will net and any outstanding volume will remain open. The volume (the amount of lots) of this position will be the difference between volumes of positions just closed.

Multiple closing of several counter positions allows closing more than two counter positions for one symbol simultaneously.

Several counter positions will be closed using the "Multiple Close By" tab. Counter positions for all or some of the managed accounts can be closed in this tab.
