How to place stop and limit on same order


Recommended Posts

Hi - this has probably been asked a dozen times already, but I can't seem to find the answer...

I have an open position on a stock, and I want to place both a stop loss, and a limit at the same time, to close out the position, if it either goes up or down...but I cant seem to find how to do it.   If I add two seperate orders, I get a notification I can't sell it short...
Any help greatly appreciated.

Cheers

I'm guessing this is in the share dealing account type?  I would love this function too, but its appears it's only available on CFD's.

Yes, I agree, the use of both would be very useful. The only way I can see to do this is via the programming API, but if you aren't a programmer then you'll need to find someone to do that for you.
