Stealth mode can hide orders or their settings from your broker. Please note that FX Synergy must be running at all times for stealth mode to work.
- Stealth market orders have no SL or TP set with your broker. FX Synergy manages the SL and TP and closes the order if either is hit.
- Stealth pending orders only exist within FX Synergy, so the broker can’t see them at all. FX Synergy places them as market orders when the market reaches the activation price, so it can be set to whatever you need. This is a great way to bypass any broker restrictions.
Depending on market conditions there may be a slight deviation in the open or close price, usually 1 pip.
Stealth mode can be setup to work in 2 different ways:
- Stealth pending orders turn into stealth market orders when they are activated.
- Stealth pending orders turn into regular market orders when they are activated.
You can change this behavior under Settings Advanced Options Unstealth On Activate.
By default, all stealth pending orders are turned into stealth market orders.
We highly recommend that you setup FX Synergy to turn stealth pending orders into regular market orders, as this will ensure that your market orders always have an SL and TP set with your broker.
