Hi everyone I am new to trading and while using the demo i stepped away from my desk and when I came back one of my trades had closed I noticed this was in the Comment section "so: 100.0%/2849.3/2850.0" , so basically i want to know if this is an error or did i do something that i am not aware of ? Thanks in advance

Guessing so = Stop out = margin call.
  1. You place the stop where it needs to be - where the reason for the trade is no longer valid. E.g. trading a support bounce the stop goes below the support.
  2. Account Balance * percent = RISK = (OrderOpenPrice - OrderStopLoss)*DIR * OrderLots * DeltaPerlot (Note OOP-OSL includes the SPREAD)
  3. Do NOT use TickValue by itself - DeltaPerlot
  4. You must normalize lots properly and check against min and max.
  5. You must also check FreeMargin to avoid stop out
