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?

    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
