How does trading over the weekend work?

The platform automatically closes the positions on their side on Sunday evening. Next, brokers need to synchronise the closing of positions on their end. The add-on application receives the pricing data via an encrypted protocol and automatically closes the positions on the MetaTrader side.

There are two ways to configure the application:

Option #1
Using two sets of symbols, for example, EURUSD for usual trading and EURUSD.wnd for forex trading over the weekends. In this case, traders can separate the usual positions from those traded on the weekend and understand quickly why a particular position is closing on Sunday night.
Option #2
Using a single set of instruments for both markets. Here, the Trade Processor will identify which session it should send the order to (usual or the Weekend FX session) based on the time period. In that case, the trader might get a feeling that trading is uninterrupted 7 days a week. Here, it is crucial to ensure closing of forex positions on Friday evening. Otherwise, there will be a discrepancy in volumes between MT4 and sessions on liquidity.
