Dragging orders and assessing risk

In MetaTrader, In addition to moving your stop loss and take profit orders around with one click you can also click on the order and drag it around – MetaTrader directly shows you the potential amount you can win or lose based on the order distance. This is ideal when it comes to managing risk, sizing positions or trailing your stop loss. In the screenshot below you can see that when you click on your take profit, for example, MetaTrader shows you the potential money amount you can win when the price reaches your order and it also gives you the pip distance.

If you enter a new trade, you can also just click on the entry order, hold your mouse down and MetaTrader will then allow you to create new stop loss and/or take profit orders.
