How do I close out a trade?
Retail forex transactions are normally closed out by entering into an equal but opposite transaction with the dealer. For example, if you bought Euros with U.S. dollars you would close out the trade by selling Euros for U.S. dollars. This is also called an offsetting or liquidating transaction. Most retail forex transactions have a settlement date when thecurrencies are due to be delivered. If you want to keep your position open beyond the settlement date, you must roll the position over to the next settlement date. Some dealers roll open positions over automatically, while other dealers may require you to request the rollover.
