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.

Hey Team, 

I have been trying to find the same answer and found it in the forum thread below. Its appears this isn't a supported feature for share trading accounts. 

In case there are IG staff out there, this is a deal breaker for me. Im going to change to CMC who offer the ability to have take profits and stops losses open at the same time. Setting an alert is a **** solution, I dont want to miss a target point because I couldn't log in on the day I get the alert.

Hi Morghas,

On a share dealing acounts these are the types of order you can place:

You can't attach a stop or limit to a share dealing position

I hope that it helps.

Hi @CRomey

Thanks for reaching out, 

For share dealing we operate a direct custody model whereby all orders are routed through our broker to the exchange. Our broker does not support for the simultaneous placing of limit and stop orders on the same stock on exchange. 

All the best, 

Anda

    • Because of this, it's wise for traders to thoroughly investigate exchanges before choosing one. I exclusively deal with cryptocurrency exchanges that have declared proof of reserve in the wake of the unfortunate events that saw some go bankrupt and others hack. Because of what I've heard traders say about Bitget and the fact that it met my requirements, I had to start using it right away. Therefore, I'd advise DYOR to choose whatever best meets your needs.
    • The Santa Rally – Christmas Growth in the Stock Market. You may well of heard of the ‘Santa Rally’. It’s a commonly discussed stock market theory. It is the basic concept that the stock markets, particularly the major indices, show positive returns on the run up to Christmas and the New year. Myth or legend? We look at the stats.  As you can see from the below table the FTSE100 rose in price in 12 of the 15 years. That’s 80% of the time. The average difference was 1.95% https://moneysandi.com/the-santa-rally-christmas-growth-in-the-stock-market/ Anyone had any experience of trading this?  #trading #money #trader #investing #investment #crypto #stockmarket #stocks #business #invest #entrepreneur #finance #investor #daytrader #daytrading #trade  #wallstreet #wealth #santarally #finance
