Stop at price instead of points


tmattias

Question

When placing a market order I have to set stop at a specific point away. Instead I want to set it at a specific price.

Also is it possible to set the qty based on a specific amount of $ risk (based on the stop price) for at market orders?

Hi, you need to consider the Spread also.  If your Stop is within the Spread it might not be possible.

For instance, if the Spread is 6pt (the difference between Buy and Sell price) then the order or Stop will Fill either side of your desired Stop depending on Long or Short position.



I think. :D

 

Edit:  Are you Spread Betting or Buying Shares?

    • GREAT CONUNDRUMS OF OUR TIMES:   1/ The WHO, having originally said it wanted a ban on alcohol for pregnant women now proposes the ban should apply to all women of childbearing age.  | BPAS HOWEVER, the WHO also says it's perfectly fine to inject pregnant women with an experimental vaccine. 🤔   2/ THORPE PARK says; ''in line with our ride restrictions, all our guests who are mask exempt are required to sit in the row farthest to the back to reduce the risk of air transmission aboard our attractions.''  BUT, as @dontbetyet points out, ''The risk of a ride malfunctioning and someone being injured / killed is a greater risk to someone in the theme park than outdoor transmission. Therefore it would be prudent for THORPEPARK to shut for good as the risk is far too great!''  🤔   OR THIS; 3/   OR THIS; 4/ You're the head of the NHS and are asked for your thoughts on Mad Matt Hancock - what do you do? 🤔     .      
    • This is how you do it. China went to near zero cases simply by changing the definition. To have a disease you must have symptoms, it is the very definition of having a disease. You need to have symptoms in order to be infectious (be productive of virus in droplets or aerosol). To be infected does not mean you have the disease nor that you might be infectious because you might have immunity which kills the infection and prevents you catching the disease and having symptoms.     h/t  david @davinci_mora   Unfortunately this is all too complicated for our govt's ''scientific experts'' (half of whom are psychologists) to understand so it's forever onward with Project Fear.
