“Sell” your trade order

You are not allowed to sell just before expiration

If it happens, that your predictions weren’t right, you can still get out of the trade. So if, for example, you were expecting the market to go up, but after a while, you notice it goes the opposite direction and you are pretty sure your trade will lose, now is the time to press the sell now button. It won’t be at the same price you made a buy, but it will surely prevent your account balance from losing the full amount declared as a trade size. Bear in mind, however, that you cannot use this possibility if the remaining time is less than 1/6 of fixed-time trades expiration.

Practice makes perfect. Remember, you can sharpen your skills on a demo account. You can also learn from your past transactions. Study whether they won or lost. You get easy access to your past trades on the right side of the Olymp Trade platform.
