Why do I need to set commission in the terminal?

To simulate real trading in the Simulator mode and to understand the amount of profit or loss taking into account the broker or exchange commission, you need to set the required amount of the commission. To do so, the terminal provides the ability to set this commission up.

Commission setup is made manually because trading commissions on stock and crypto exchanges are based on traded volumes of the particular trader. Only the trader knows which traded volumes will be used during trading activity, therefore has an option to while using Simulator or Player trading modes.

In the Live account, the commission charged in the terminal does not affect anything, since it is set and is regulated only by the broker or the exchange.
