Good til cancelled order


Recommended Posts

Hi - can i just check my understanding here...if i place a GTC order to sell on a specific forex pair at 18941 with a stop loss at 19000 and the price goes up and beyond 19000, then the GTC is not triggered? It will only trigger at my sell (or buy) price?

New to trading and not used orders previously : )

Hi, not sure if I'm understanding you right, a GTC (Good til you Cancel the order) just replaces an order that is automatically canceled at the end of day so it will stay in waiting on your chart. If price tags the sell order level 18941 then the order is triggered and the short is initiated, if price then moves up and tags 19000 then the stop loss will trigger and the trade closed out.

Thank you for the prompt reply. Sorry, should have said, if in my example, the GTC sell order is not triggered at 18941, but the price moves beyond the stop loss at 19000, then the fact that the price has moved beyond the stop loss would not also trigger the GTC ?

no the the limit or stop sell order needs to be triggered first for the stop loss to become activated.

    • Look Ahead to 08/02/23: Oil inventories; TTEF, DIS, UBER and BDEV earnings Oil, tech, and the consumer are set to dominate the markets on Wednesday, with earnings from TotalEnergies (TTEF), EIA data, and results from Walt Disney (DIS) and Uber Technologies (UBER).

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
