Hi Gurus,

I use the IG  Web platform to do my TA's and Share Trading, can someone kindly help on how to navigate to the screen where I set the Trailing stop on an existing position.

The Screenshot of the page needed is attached.




Hi, you can add a trailing stop to the leveraged platforms from the deal/order ticket as per your pic or from the positions screen by clicking on the stop numbers box for an existing position.

Trailing stops aren't available on the share dealing platform as yet. IG only uses order types that are available on the actual exchange and most share dealing exchanges don't do them. IG does recognise that other brokers do provide them by adding their own algo to the order and say they will look to provide the same but haven't quite got round to it yet. 

Also stop orders can generally only be set after the entry order has been triggered (share dealing platform).

yes the first pic is for the leveraged platforms (spread bet and CFDs) which do have trailing stops and the pic in your last post is from the share dealing platform for which trailing stops aren't yet available.

Stops can be added or altered from the Positions tab on the left hand side of the screen see pic

    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.
