Closing a position on the MT5 is a straightforward process.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. On the trade window of your MT5, locate the trade you wish to close.

  2. Click on the X button on the far right of your screen next to the trade. Alternatively, you can right-click on the trade and then click on Close Position.

That's it! Your position is now closed, and your Balance is adjusted according to your Margin.

We hope it was a successful one!
