Stop order on a sharedealing ISA


Recommended Posts

The people on the live chat can't seem to understand this concept so I'll ask this here.

Can I automatically sell my shares if they drop in price (to a specific level) in the sharedealing ISA?

EXAMPLE:

I buy 100 shares of company X at £50.   I want to automatically sell the shares if they DROP to £48 for a LOSS of £200  (100 x £2).

I do not want to sell for £48.5, £48.1 or £48.01, it has to be a price EQUAL TO OR LESS THAN £48. 

Is there a way to do this or not?

Thanks for your post. 

If you use a stop order to sell it means we will sell at the price you select or worse. We will try and get the price you selected but if the market were to move downwards rapidly we will get the next available price. 

In your example, if you were to set a stop order to sell at £48 your instructions to us would be sell at £48 or less. 

I hope this helps.

Hi, Charlotte.  Can I add to this and ask why I can't add a Stop/Sell order on Powerhouse Energy Group in in my Share Dealing account?  Thanks.

I also can't remove my Limit/Take Profit from Supply@ME Capital PLC.  Spread Betting.

    • 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 ...
