How would that work?

Its a feature of some other platforms I wish was here. Imagine you were watching a stock you thought was about to break out, maybe today, maybe next week but you think will run long, well. Its popping up against $1 repeatedly. So you place a "rising buy" order for the volume you want with a trigger of (say) $1.05. When the stock breaks out and passes $1.05, your order is filled as quick as the market will offer.

Normally you would have to sit on the buy ticket waiting for the breakout, by the time you have actually bought it the bots will have driven the stock up many points and you may lose the run. This style of buy helps get in at the bottom of the run.

Kind of the direct opposite of a "stop loss" order

That looks like what I need thanks HMB but I cannot get those options on my platform, is yours an upgrade of some degree?  Cheers



looks to me like what on my platform (IG spread betting) is called "price level", is called "order level" on your platform. 


in the order type field - can you select "stop"?

    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.
