Stop Orders - place x2 at the same time


Recommended Posts

Hi - i'm looking to understand whether it is possible to place x2 stop order's at the same time, which if the first is filled then the second auto cancels. I'm trading intra-day and often see where the price level remains within a small range for a period of time and then breaks to the upside or downside.

Hi, yes you can place a stop order above and below the current price but not sure which platform and if has a OCO (one cancels other) function, you may need to manually cancel the one not triggered.

Hi,

I'm new to trading. I have a somewhat related question.

Suppose I buy index stock X at 1,000 with stop at 40 but no upper limit. After some time it rises to 1,500. Can I put in a mechanism that sells the stock if it falls to 1,400? This way I won't have to worry about taking in a loss.

Hi,

I'm new to trading. Have a question. Suppose I buy stock X on the index at 1,000 with a stop of (at 960). The index rises to 1,500 after some time. Can I use a mechanism to sell the stock at 1,400 to stop any future loss in case it does go down to 960?

Hi, yes a stop loss order is just an order to sell the same amount of stock at a set price below the current price. You should be able to move your original stop but if not you can create a new one.

    • If we could get some news about negotations and a possible ceasefire in Ukraine then i would say this is the bottom https://edition.cnn.com/markets/fear-and-greed "That indicator previously fell to 0 in August 2002, July 2008, September 2011, September 2015, January 2016 and March 2020, observed Hartnett. When it has previously zeroed out, except in the case of a double-dip recession such as 2002 or in the event of systemic events, as in 2008 and 2011, three-month returns have been strong, as the table below shows." https://www.marketwatch.com/story/based-on-history-the-next-bull-market-is-just-months-away-and-could-take-the-s-p-500-to-6000-says-bofa-11655475414
    • The CME Bitcoin futures BTC main contract was at $19,370 late Friday (Chinese time) in New York, up 3.25% from Thursday's New York session, and trading in the $18,630-20,790 range during the session, down 8.87% for the week. the CME Ethereum futures DCR main contract was at $1065.50, up 5.08% from Thursday, and trading in the 1009.50-$1118.00 range, down 13.02% for the week.Maybe there is still a possibility of decline.
