The trades placed through the Price Window are always in Click and Deal execution mode.
Sometimes you will only need to track the quotes of a couple of instruments and ignore the rest. Instead of watching all the quotes, you can open a small panel displaying the quote of a single instrument. What is more, when the price reaches the level you are waiting for, you can quickly place an order using the Buy or Sell buttons located at bottom of the panel.
The Price Window can be accessed by right-clicking on any instrument in the grid of the Dealing Rates window and then selecting the Price Window option:
If the Voice quotes icon - is highlighted in blue (active), the platform will tell you the instrument's Bid price once every minute. This is enabled only when the Price Window is opened outside of Quotes panel.
By marking the relevant radio button, you can select which indicator will be visible in the Price window/New Order/Quotes panel.
The flashing background colours can be enabled or disabled from the check-box in the upper-right corner of the platform.
When you place the cursor over the spread field, you can see the full Name of the instrument, High (the highest transacted price during the trading day), Low (the lowest transacted price during the trading day), Open (the first transacted price during the trading day), Close (the last transacted price for the previous trading day), Change % (how much the current price differs from the opening price, in percentage), Closes at (if the instrument is quoted at the moment) or Opens at (if the instrument isn't quoted at the moment), Trading hours (or Holidays If the instrument is not traded on certain holidays), Expiry date (the expiry date only for futures) and Upcoming events (view upcoming events from economic indicators).
If you are holding a position in a certain instrument, you will see information about it at the bottom: Lots/Number, Average price and Profit/Loss (current result of the position which you will realise if you close the position).
When you place the cursor over this information, you can see the full name of the instrument, fee and interest (if any applied), Limit Price Improvement (Total profit from all executed pending orders in this instrument at a better price than requested), Total P/L (profit or loss you have generated from this instrument ever since you started trading it) for the position and change per tick (shows what is your profit/loss for the position per every tick), P/L (the current result of the position, which you will realise if you close it now), Margin (the margin required to keep this position open, in the currency of the account), Value (the value of the position in the currency of the account), PosValueInPercent (the value of this position as a percentage of the total Positions Value, in the Account Equity tooltip); Stop/Limit (the result which you will realise if this Stop/Limit to this open position closes it):
You can open the Price window in charts by choosing the last icon from Chart module toolbar. This way you activate Trading mode in the Charts and trade through them.

The trades placed through the Price Window are always in the Click and Deal execution mode.
What is a "Click and Deal" execution mode?
Click and Deal is a mode in which orders are executed at the currently available market price, rather than the price at the time you placed the order. During high market volatility, quotes change rapidly, and the quotes at the moment the order was executed might differ from the price you saw when you placed the order. The order will be executed at the new price, and you will not have the option to accept or reject the new price, as the platform is in the Normal execution mode.
NOTE: Always remember that when the Click and Deal mode is ON, each click will force a deal, and the price of the deal might differ from the price at the moment you placed the order!
Placing a new "Click and Deal" order
The Trade Confirmation window will appear every time, regardless of the trading mode you are in, unless you check the option in the upper-right part of the platform or the "Don't show this message again" check-box from the Trade Confirmation window.
If you right-click anywhere on the Bid or the Ask panel, a context menu will appear. It gives you access to several functions of the platform.
