Why are there no limit orders for stock trading?



I just read this: 

Can I add a stop or limit to a share dealing position?


No, you can only add stops or limits to spread bets or CFD trades. 


Why on earth is this?
I would actually expect a stop loss and take profit level to be available to either a market or limit order.
It is a very strange omission for a platform such as this.

In my quest for a paper trading account that allows proper SL and TP levels to be set I have found:
IB (only works with a very ugly Trader Workstation desktop app, that cannot remember login/password)
Trading212 (has limit orders but no simultaneous SL/TP - it will only allow a sell order to the value of a position that is already filled)

Why is such a fundamental necessity of risk management missing here?

    • HODL offers a unique approach for crypto investors on BNBChain. Instead of focusing on active trading, you earn rewards simply for holding HODL tokens. Every transaction feeds a pool that gets distributed as BNB tokens to HODLers, essentially rewarding patience. The project goes beyond just transactions, exploring NFTs, Play-to-Earn games, and other ways to generate income for holders. Their innovative contract even automates the reward system, functioning like a built-in sell bot working for you around the clock. If you're a crypto believer who values long-term holding and want to be rewarded for your loyalty, HODL could be a great fit. HODL rose by 80% after its bitget listing.Just remember to do your own research before investing
    • I remember this tournament from last year. Seems they've upped the rewards this time. $5m and multiple modules to compete on. I'll tell my traders friends. This should get their juices up!.
    • The low mcap and daily trading volume makes it attractive to ape in early. The listing on bitget will give it more exposure.
