Stops on your share trading account

Recommended Posts

Why don’t you allow stops on your share trading account when you offer it with CFDs

i have been a member since 2006/7 and find this very frustrating. I have traded futures/ oil/ currencies/ CFD. I had a break and concentrated on my property portfolio and I am back.  Am I missing something? Because I can’t seem to figure that out why not offer it. I might have to move to another provider. But would rather you offer it. It’s crazy trading with mental stop only!

On my share trading account I can place Sell stop orders (ASX Share trading), and I think when market opens you can place buy stop orders too.  But it would be great if the same deal placement could be used from the CFD account in the share trading account.

hi Quaker,

 I can't and i don't know why? I am only trading ASX share on the ig markets share trading account and it does not let me place stops on it. I have never had any trouble with CFDs and i have been using the share trading account for 12 months, making more then 4 trades a month. easy

I was reading under the tab client and account status, this is were i found the information possibly why i don't have stops. do you know if this is correct?

That is interesting,  I can't test this as the market is closed but I think you need to select sell before the stop order is available? Selecting the order type first you will only see Limit (from memory).  You can save the stop order for daily or good 'til cancelled.  If I remember I'll pop back on in the morning.

Just did a quick pre-market check and yes, the stop function only appears after selecting the Sell side.image.png.38e0b2cfb5773f2b1a1ae6dca3927f5c.png

Thank you so much. Quacker its funny how I  missed something like that!

Yes You are so right ! it only appears when the market is open and i use the mobile ap to do all my trading, I believed  the desktop was the only way to use the various stop and buy & sell orders, it was there all along. thanks i think you saved my bacon , if not now into the future.

    • This content is based on my personal opinion and not a financial advise for readers hence ensure you DYOR before investing. Resources: https://www.odaily.news/en/newsflash/380143 No doubt memecoin has seen tremendous adoption over the last 6 with more capital inflowing into the memecoin sector. The artificial intelligence sector and RWA sector is another sector that looks promising but the crazy gains recorded from memecoin in the first quarter of the year might have been the reason for investors to shift their focus to memecoin.  With BTC only managing 48% gain since the beginning of 2024, tokens like WIF, PEPE and floki surged by 1300%, 815% and 392% respectively. Among the top 10 tokens, BGB the native token of Bitget was the only exchange token to find it's way up returning 100% to investors in 6 months. While the second half of the year hold a lot of promise due to anticipation of BTC post halving bullrun, a lot of investors are looking to invest in a tokens with decent ROI potential and memecoin looks the best option to many. Not disputing the crazy gains that might comes with investing in memecoin, the risk of losing it all is also higher especially investing in new memecoins. Considering the continuous growth, expansion and ecosystem development of Bitget, BGB holds a great potential with minimal risk compared to memecoin. Additionally, the entry point is still very great for both new and old investors. What sectors do you think will lead in the bullrun proper? Will memecoin still lead the year or will AI, Gaming, RWA pull a surprise. Share your thoughts.
    • Yeah! I think I would have to agree with you on this as I have benefited a lot from the event this recent times & I have plans of leveraging the event for a long time.
