How to Split a Trade

Release #243, which went out on July 5th, 2022, introduced the ability to easily split a trade into multiple, smaller trades.  Follow these instructions to split a trade.

On the TRADES screen, find the trade you wish to split, click the hamburger action menu, and select SPLIT.

The resulting modal window provides a form for creating split trades. In the example screenshot below, we are splitting a 10-lot trade into a 7-lot trade and a 3-lot trade. 

New trades can be added by clicking the + SPLIT button.  The quantities for the split trades are changed in the attributes section of the form.

On each split trade, you have the ability to change any attributes of the trade that need to change from the original trade. Attributes can be changed on the split trades by clicking the + EDIT button.  A new attribute row will appear where you can select an attribute to update and input the value for the attribute.

You can navigate between the split trades by clicking on the columns of the SPLIT QTY summary grid.

The sum of quantities of the split trades must equal the original trade's quantity. The summary grid shows the total split quantity vs. the original trade's quantity, as shown below:

Once everything is correctly split, select the SPLIT button on the bottom right-hand side.
