You are free to modify the information you would like to view from a position by enabling or disabling it from the View Columns.

Closed date - only for closed positions:
This is the date and time that the last exit trade closed, displayed in your personal time zone.
Group - only in Error Log:
If a position is assigned to the Un-open group, it means the position has never been opened. If a position is assigned to the Un-sold group, the position was able to open but couldn't sell the coins or the contracts. The reason for both cases can be found in the Status column.

The service's icon.
For you to view the trader who opened a specific position. A "manual" provider name is yourself.
This is only available for closed positions and error positions. It presents how the position was closed or what the error is. Such as "Take Profit Ended" if the position was sold by reaching its take profit targets, or "Stop Loss Ended" if the positions ended with Stop loss targets. In a position that was closed by both take profit and stop loss targets, the status will take the last trade that occurred. In order to learn the meaning of the Status, you should click on the Arrow right next to it.
This is the signal that a trader uses to manage a position. If a trader sends a signal to open a position, he can decide the signal ID in the syntax with the "signalId" parameter. If not, the system will automatically generate an ID for you.

The number of coins or contracts remaining in the position if you sold the position partially with Take profit or Reduce position size targets.
In Spot trading, this is the number of quote coins you spent to open the position. In Futures trading, this is the number of quote coins with leverage you invested.
❗As it presents the investment you put in the position, it only changes if you invest more. If you sell your position partially, it won't be affected.
This also presents the number of quote coins you spent to open the position (like Invested ⬆️).

Zignaly exchange fees are the same as Binance's website due to our Broker Partnership.
Funding rates are periodic payments either to traders that are long or short based on the difference between perpetual contract markets and spot prices.
When the market is bullish ⏫, the funding rate is positive and long traders pay short traders.
When the market is bearish ⏬, the funding rate is negative and short traders pay long traders.
Binance does not take these fees for Funding Rate transfers; these are passed directly between traders.
On Binance Futures, Funding occurs every 8 hours at 00:00 UTC; 08:00 UTC, and 16:00 UTC. Traders are only liable for funding payments in either direction if they have open positions at the pre-specified funding times. If traders do not have a position, they are not liable for any funding.
❗Note that if the position was closed prior to the funding exchange then you will not pay or receive funding.
Net profit %:
The percentage of profit compared to your real investment with fees deduction.
Net profit #:

Position ID is information you can take and share with the support team if you would like us to check that position with the provider. However, for security reasons, we cannot provide any specific answers for a follower. It's better if you can contact the trader first to request him to open a chat with us about it.
