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
