To fully understand all the information can initially seem complicated but it actually becomes much easier with some practice.
The main trouble is caused by the fact that open positions are always “rolled” from a trading session to another at rollover time (7:59 PM “server time” in our case, or generally 5:59 PM in London). Rolling a position on a cash market is a ghost transaction, automatically done by the broker, which records the PnL of each trading day by splitting the trades in several parts (24 hours maximum).
Now let’s see how to read the statements.
Ticket: Transaction reference number. If the same number appears on several lines, it means that the same position has been rolled on several days.
Open Time: Date and Time when the trade has been opened. It can be a new entry (random time) or a position opened in the past which has been rolled to the next day (Time 7:59 PM).
Type: Trade direction (buy or sell). The “Hedge” mention signals an existing position which has been extended for 24 more hours and rolled again at end of day. The “Balance” mention is a fund transfer (deposit, withdrawal, commission, adjustment, etc).
Symbol: Traded currency pair.
Size: Transaction size in lots (1 lot = 100k).
Open Price: Entry price (if Open Time = 7:59 PM, this is the last price at which a position opened in the past has been rolled).
Close Time: Date and Time when the trade has been closed. It can be a final exit (random time) or a position which is rolled to the next day (Time 7:59 PM).
Close Price: Exit price (if Close Time = 7:59 PM, this is the price at which the position has been rolled to the next day).
Commission: Brokerage fee, calculated when a new entry occurs (so only for trades with an Open Time which is different from 7:59 PM).
Swap: Interest rate difference between the bought currency and the sold currency, which affects overnight positions. The swap is paid at midnight server time, or generally 10 PM in London. So if a statement line extends from 10 AM to 8 PM the same day for example, no swap is charged in this range of time. As a result, swap fees are proportional to the trade length but they can also be profitable (credit) if the rate difference is positive. In case it would become necessary to hold the position for longer than initially expected, our risk management enjoins us to trade currency pairs which are not too expensive in swap fees.
Profit: Profit made on the related time range.
Comment: Only in a “Balance” or “Hedge” type line. For example, the “hedge position” mention signals an existing position which has been extended for 24 more hours and rolled again at end of day.
