Item name




The account balance available for withdrawal.



The amount of money available for trades. It shows the total amount of balance and credit, plus or minus the floating P/L if there are open trades.



The amount of funds provided by your broker. It is only for trades and not withdrawable.



The amount of money required to hold positions.


Free Margin

The amount of equity minus margin.


Margin Level

The percentage of equity to margin.



The profit/loss of the open trades.

point Fees not included in the floating P/L on MT5

If there's a swap, it'll be included in the P/L. If the account charges fees, the round-trip fee will be deducted when closing your position in MetaTrader4 (MT4), so it'll be included in the floating P/L until then. In MT5, the one-way transaction fee will be deducted from your balance when entering your position, so it won't be included in the floating P/L.
