How do I buy shares above current price and sell above


jrmatinee

Question

I'm very new so forgive me if this has already been answered but I haven't been able to find it.

I'm trying to setup a buy order for shares if they reach a certain price.  Then I want to add 2 sell prices, one as a stop loss and the other at a peak.

For example, share $AAA is currently trading at $100.  I want to buy at $110, I want a stop loss at $90 and I want to sell at a high of $125.  I know how to set a stop loss of $90 after I already own the shares, but that's it, other than setting an alert and doing it manually.  Can anyone help me?

Hey @jrmatinee

If this is on a share dealing account you can open shares at a different price however if you want to buy at a higher price (worse than the current market value) that would be stop order type to open. If you set it to a limit order it would buy at the market price. Just note, with the stop order it gives us instructions to buy at $110 or higher. 

Once you have the position open, you can set a limit order higher than the market price and it will only sell your shares at that price or higher. If you set a stop order below the market price (at $90) if the market falls to that price it will sell at $90 or less (the next available price). 

You can't set both a limit and stop order to close on the same shares. What some people do it set a stop order (as the stop) then set a price alert at their desired take profit price. 

All the best.

    • If you had left a limit order based on the previous margin requirement, it's likely the system would've adjusted it to match the new rate once it changed. This helps prevent any unexpected margin calls. However, it's always wise to double-check your orders, especially when there are fluctuations in margin requirements. 
    • Just look at CZ's impact on Binance or Gracy Chen's leadership at Bitget. It's incredible how a visionary leader can propel an organization forward. Gracy Chen's track record speaks for itself – fourfold growth in two years is no small feat! With her at the helm, Bitget could indeed be on track to reach new heights.
    • Hey, have you all heard about this zkLink Nova project? It's supposed to be some next-level technology for Ethereum and Layer 2 networks, and I've been looking into it. I'm telling you, this could be massive! Alright, let me break it down for you. zkLink Nova is like an "Aggregated Layer 3 zkEVM Rollup network" built on top of zkSync's ZK Stack. I know, it sounds super technical, but hear me out. Basically, it's a way to integrate all the liquidity and assets from Ethereum and different Layer 2 rollups into one unified platform. Now, why is that a big deal, you ask? Well, right now, all these networks are like separate islands, you know what I mean? Their assets and liquidity are fragmented, and we have to use questionable bridges to move stuff around. It's a complete mess, and it opens up security risks like crazy. But with zkLink Nova, they're using some fancy zero-knowledge proof magic to let us access the combined liquidity without needing to bridge assets! Can you imagine that? It's like having one massive, happy DeFi playground with all the toys under one roof. No more hopping around networks or dealing with shady bridge protocols. Just pure, unified liquidity and assets at our fingertips. The possibilities for dApp developers with that kind of power are insane! And get this – the zkLink team has already lined up over 60 partners to help steer this Layer 3 ecosystem! We're talking big names like Coinbase Ventures and Arrington Capital, who have already invested a whopping $23M into the zkLink ecosystem's development. I'm telling you, this Nova thing could be a game-changer for the Ethereum and Layer 2 space. It's like they're solving one of the biggest headaches we've had in DeFi with all these incompatible networks. Oh, and here's the kicker – the $ZKL token, which is the native token for the zkLink ecosystem, is now available for premarket trade on Bitget! This could be our chance to get in early on what might become the backbone of a whole new era of DeFi interoperability. But I want to know what you all think. Are you buying into the zkLink Nova hype? Or do you think it's just another overhyped project promising the moon? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
