What can I find in my MT5 trading report?

MetaTrader 5 differs from MetaTrader 4 in that it does not have two types of reports (usual and detailed). The MetaTrader 5 trading report is like a detailed MetaTrader 4 report.

The components of a standard report:

  • Balance: Total financial result of all completed trading and non-trading transactions (deposits, withdrawals) on the trading account at the time the report is generated.
  • Credit Facility: Available credit.
  • Floating P/L: Total floating profits and losses on all transactions open on a client's account at the time the report is generated.
  • Equity: The equity level at the moment the statement was generated (Balance + Credit + Floating profit - Floating loss).
  • Free Margin: Funds available to open a new position at the time the report is generated (Free Margin = Equity - Margin).
  • Margin: Total margin for all open transactions at the time the report is generated.
  • Margin Level: Ratio of Equity to Margin expressed as a percentage.

What You'll Find in Your Detailed Report (in addition to the information found in regular trading reports):

  • Total Profit Amount of profitable trades in monetary units.
  • Total Loss Amount of losing trades in monetary units.
  • Gross Profit: The total amount of profits earned on profit-earning positions over the reporting period.
