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.

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

    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY head lower after central bank volatility This week has seen risk-off sentiment dominate the FX market, with EUR/USD and GBP/USD falling back towards Fibonacci support. Meanwhile, the USD/JPY downtrend looks to finally kick in once again.  Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 03 February 2023  EUR/USD turns higher from Fibonacci support EUR/USD has managed to maintain its consistent uptrend despite the central bank fuelled volatility seen over the course of this week. Today brings a final hurdle to overcome in the form of the US jobs report, with the last pullback bringing a potentially advantageous location to look for longs in EUR/USD. With the price having dropped into a deep Fibonacci retracement level over the course of the past 24 hours, this is a notable area where the bulls could come back in to maintain the bullish trend. With that in mind, long positions remain in favour unless we see the price fall back below the $1.0802 swing low. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD reverses back towards Fibonacci support GBP/USD has been hit hard over the past 24 hours, with the pound particularly coming under pressure in the back end of this week. While that decline has been relatively convincing in terms of momentum, the wider bullish trend remains in play. The pullback into the 76.4% Fibonacci support level of $1.2172 highlights the potential for a bullish turnaround from here. As such, keep an eye out for how the pair respects this Fibonacci level, with a break below that point signalling the potential for a continuation of this decline towards the key $1.2086. Meanwhile, watch out for a move up through the 80 threshold on the stochastic oscillator as a signal that the bulls are coming back into dominance. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY breakdown points towards further downside USD/JPY has finally given way after a period of consolidation that took the price up towards trendline resistance. The ability to maintain that wider bearish trend brought expectations of another leg lower, which appears to be in the offing. The decline through $1.2902 support brings an end to the recent trend of higher lows seen earlier this week. As such, we appear to have set in motion a potential fresh bearish phase, with a negative outlook holding as long as the price does not rise up through the $1.3055 resistance level established on Monday. Until that happens, the bears look likely to remain in charge. Source: ProRealTime
    • Hi @eddyed& @Kowal There are many reasons that can result in a stock going on closings only. It also depends on the type of account you trade in. On leverage accounts, this can be due to the company's market cap changing or other restrictions enforcing IG to offer this on share dealing only. For non-leverage accounts, it can be due to a corporate actions event, market going OTC, etc.  For THG.L, this market is now only offered on share dealing accounts as we have reached our limit on how much we can hold in the market for leverage accounts. It is a business decision and this is reviewed regularly. Therefore you will be able to trade the stocks on a later stage. The best option would be to contact our helpdesk or using this platform to find the reason for the 'Closings only' status.  All the best, OfentseIG
