Please could someone explain why on my Metatrader 5 (Active Trades) demo account the trading "History" information is very limited.

There is no column explaining the price of positions closed. It does not even state whether closed positions were in profit or loss. All it says is State "filled" , what is that supposed to mean?

Thanks Ian x

Can you snapshot the platform to show what you actually mean? :D

Thanks Francis, What I mean is that the MET. 4 "Terminal window", "Account History" Details :  Order,Time,Type, Symbol, Price(on entry)  etc you also have a column for Price (when position closed) and a column detailing profit/loss of each individual trade.

Whereas on my Met. 5 "terminal window", "account history", the order details are all in place but there are no details about how each trade closed..

   The columns on the right hand side say "State" (where price closed should be) but the only thing in the column is the word "filled" , there is nothing to say what the price was when the trade was closed and there is no column stating whether or not the position closed in profit or loss.    Does that all make sense ?

The information on MT5 are not like in MT4, you have to understand how MT5 trading system is working.

Creating a robust trading robot cannot be done without an understanding of the mechanisms of the MetaTrader 5 trading system. The client terminal receives the information about the positions, orders, and deals from the trading server. To handle this data properly using the MQL5, it's necessary to have a good understanding of the interaction between the MQL5-program and the client terminal.
