Can I put a stop loss on a share I already hold in an ISA.

If so how?

Hi, should be possible. Go to the 'Positions' tab (left hand side of the platform screen), find the trade and under the Stop heading there should be a box or space where the numbers would be, click on the box/space and the stop options should appear.

Pic below is of the spread bet (demo) platform.

For some reason the stop doesn't appear on my shares. Is this because its a share and not a indice?

ok, more likely the platform and the market type.

A stop loss is just an order for the same amount in the opposite direction so you can set that up manually, a sell order for the full amount at the level you want to sell the stock can rest in the market and be moved end of day as required.
