Definition of Deal in cTrader
The concept of a Deal in cTrader is an order that has been filled. I.e. it’s a final action that cannot be reversed. It’s a done deal. Deals shouldn’t be confused with Orders as they are quite different. Deals contain information about what you have actually bought or sold with your broker. Adjustments to your balance are caused by Deals, which are the result of an Order. Consider an Order is shaking hands with someone and agreeing with them you would like to buy something; a Deal is a final action when money and goods physically change hands.
