Stops on your share trading account

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.

    • Gold price and oil price rally, as lumber price drops back Gold and oil have managed to push higher, recovering some of last week’s losses. Meanwhile, lumber has fallen again. Source: Bloomberg  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 08 February 2023  Gold pushes higher After the steep losses of Thursday and Friday, the price has attempted to edge higher. A higher low could be in the process of forming, though if the price breaches $1861 this view would be cancelled out. This would then bring the 50-day simple moving average (SMA) into view, and may well result in additional losses down towards $1800. A weaker US dollar might provide hope of a bounce that could set up a move back towards $1950. Source: ProRealTime WTI moves back above 50-day MA US crude oil has clawed back Friday’s losses, rebounding from the lows of the week. Having held the $72.80 area that was also support in early January, a move back towards the 100-day SMA could be in the offing. Above this, the January highs around $82 act as possible resistance. Having prompted a reversal that, for the moment, cancels out a bearish view, buyers will want to see a move above $84 if they are to lay the foundations of a move towards the 200-day SMA. A drop back below $72 is needed to revive the bearish view which seemed so strong on Friday, and would then open the way to $70 and lower. Source: ProRealTime Lumber losses accelerate After another day of losses, a lower high for lumber could be in place. A reversal from below the 200-day SMA would seem to bolster the bearish case, especially since the price failed to break above 54,000. This had acted as resistance back in October as well. Further declines target the 100-day and 50-day SMAs, before moving to the January low around 36,400. Buyers will need to see a move above 54,000 and the 200-day SMA to suggest that a more bullish view prevails. Source: ProRealTime
    • Volatile trade, following Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s comments at the Economic Club of Washington DC, has ultimately ended in gains for major US indices the SP500, Dow Jones and Nasdaq 100. Source Bloomberg   Indices Market trend Federal Reserve Dow Jones Industrial Average Nasdaq-100 Trade    Shaun Murison | Senior Market Analyst, Johannesburg | Publication date: Wednesday 08 February 2023  While the Fed chair noted that inflation was continuing to ease, he also suggested that US lending rates are likely to rise further. While disinflation has begun in the world’s largest economy, figures remain a far cry off the central banks 2% target. Expectations are that rates are still likely to reach the 5% to 5.25% range, considered a point of neutrality. However, Mr Powell cautioned markets that the reemergence of higher inflation and strong labour reports could push rates further than markets currently expect. Markets appeared to dismiss the ‘hawkish’ comments from the Fed, and major benchmark indices have started to extend the bullish trends we have seen this year. S&P 500 (US 500)   Source IG The moving 20 (red), 50 (green)and 200 (blue) day simple moving averages (MAs) reaffirm the upward trend bias for the SP500 index. The stochastic oscillator currently labours in overbought territory. Our view is that the trend takes precedence over the overbought signal. A shallow pullback on the index looks to have ended with a bullish engulfing candle pattern / price reversal. 4195 and 4220 provide the initial upside resistance targets from the move higher, while 4325 provides a longer-term upside resistance target. Traders who are long might consider using close below the 4085 low as a tight stop loss indication for the trade. A tight stop loss consideration is in lieu of the overbought conditions in play. Traders could also consider trailing a stop loss with the red trend line on the chart. Nasdaq 100 (US 100) Source IG The technical indications on the Nasdaq 100 (US Tech 100) are like that of the SP500. The moving 20 (red), 50 (green)and 200 (blue) day simple moving averages (MAs) reaffirm the upward trend bias for the index while stochastic oscillator currently labours in overbought territory. A shallow pullback on the index looks to have ended with a bullish engulfing candle pattern / price reversal. 12900 and 13190 are the initial upside resistance targets from the move higher. Traders who are long might consider using close below the 12400 low as a tight stop loss indication for the trade. A tight stop loss consideration is in lieu of the overbought conditions in play. Traders could also consider trailing a stop loss with the red trend line on the chart. Dow Jones Industrial Index (Wall Street 30) Source IG The Dow Jones Industrial Index while also posting gains in the near term, reflects a slightly different trading environment right now to the SP500 and Nasdaq indices. The short to medium term trend for the index is considered sideways, while the longer-term trend bias is considered up. The sideways range is considered between levels 32475 (support) and 34660 (resistance). Traders of the index might prefer to keep a long bias to trades in lieu of the longer-term uptrend still in play. Long trade considerations might be on a bullish price reversal closer to range support or on a bullish upside break of range resistance.
    • FTSE 100 near record high, DAX 40 and S&P 500 also higher on Fed Chair Powell speech Outlook on FTSE 100, DAX 40 and S&P 500 post less hawkish than anticipated Jerome Powell speech. Source: Bloomberg    Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 08 February 2023  FTSE 100 trades close to new all-time highs The FTSE 100 rallied to a new all-time high overnight following Wednesday evening’s less hawkish than anticipated speech by the Federal Reserve (Fed) chair Jerome Powell, even though he explained that more rate hikes would be needed if the US labour market remains strong but also mentioned that disinflation had begun. A continued advance in the UK blue chip index could have the psychological 8,000 mark in focus, if further record highs were to be seen. Slips should find support around the 7,876 January peak and further down at Tuesday’s 7,843 low. While it underpins, immediate upside pressure should be maintained. Source: ProRealTime DAX 40 recovers on back of stronger US equity markets On Tuesday, the DAX 40 revisited its Monday low but then recovered off it amid stronger US equity markets which positively interpreted comments by Fed chair Jerome Powell, even though he mentioned that inflation may last “quite a bit of time.” Following Tuesday’s Hammer formation on the daily candlestick chart, the DAX 40 may once more be heading towards its 15,553 early February high, provided that Tuesday’s low at 15,272 underpins on a daily chart closing basis. Above it the 2023 uptrend line at 15,318 may offer support as well. Source: ProRealTime S&P 500 rallies post Fed chair Powell’s speech The S&P 500 saw some volatile trading on Tuesday, rising in anticipation of Fed chair Jerome Powell’s speech and then rapidly dropping during his speech before finally rallying as the market interpreted his comments to be less hawkish than previously anticipated. A swift rise off Tuesday’s 4,088 low took the index back above the 4,155 mid-September high while targeting last week’s six-month high at 4,195 which hasn’t been reached yet, though. If overcome, however, the late August high at 4,215 would be next in line. A bullish bias will be maintained while no bearish reversal takes the S&P 500 below Tuesday’s 4,088 low. If so, a top may be forming which could take the index back to the 55- and 200-day simple moving averages (SMAs) at 3,966 to 3,938. Source: ProRealTime
