Stop Buy/Sell Limit Orders on New Platform for both Spreadbetting & ISA's... Please

Recommended Posts

Could you please add stop buy/sell limit order on the new platform for both ISA's and spreadbetting please.

 

As much as I would like too, I very rarely place stop orders because of the risk of a being filled at an unfavourable price. In particular, a price outside of one's risk parameters. This can occur when a stock gaps up/down or moves quickly through the stop order price and is filled at a much higher/lower price. This prohibits anyone with prudent risk management from trading a breakout or breakdown strategy trading set up when not being at their computer/mobile device or doing other tasks.

 

The idea is that an upper/lower limit is put on the buy/sell stop order price respectively in which one is prepared to trade. The range of prices between the stop and stop limit order increases the likelihood of a fill in a fast moving market. It also eliminates the prospect of being filled on a gap up/down on a price far beyond one's risk parameters. 

 

The normal configuration for this type of order is for the stop buy/sell limit order to be set with the stop buy limit/stop sell limit order and the good till canceled stop loss order. That would just require an addition of a stop buy limit and a sell limit order to the existing spreadbet ticket.

 

Anyone interested in this feature please let it be known below.

 

Thanks

Thank you for your post!

 

Looking at your request, we do have the option to place a stop buy/sell limit order. However this is not currently possible on the new or the classic web trading platform.

 

We do, however, offer this type of order on our L2 Dealer platform. This is a more advanced platform that allows for more advanced order control.

 

I am happy to pass on your feedback to our developers to add this to the new trading platform, for the moment please see the L2 Dealer platform. Link provided below:

If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Chris,

 

I have just been over to the link you provided for the L2 platform. Unless I have missed something it only mentions CFD's and shares in your share dealing service being tradable on the L2 platform? My enquiry related to Spreadbetting and ISA's, kindly see the title?

 

Please advise.

hi chris IG, I hold share dealing account, why there is no stop loss? Surely now IG has started to charge custody fee, can they improve their platform by adding a proper stop loss. Please do not suggest other methods like using alerts etc., as when  an alert come at 3am regarding an Australian stock I will be sleeping! A proper stop loss for all international and UK stocks is a basic but essential tool in share dealing; cannot believe IG does not provide such a tool. Also why research and information on all stocks are so poor please improve???

    • Financial Anarchy: one of the main fallacies of Bitcoin. You are that independent holding bitcoin that anytime you want to buy it or sell it have to go through an exchange using your full identity. With all sort of passports and ids checks. Let's not forget that the main goal of many bitcoiners is to amass as much of the correlated fiat currency as possible. With the romantic topic of becoming a blade runner paying in SHA-256 hashes to other elite individuals you watch how your virtual coins grow in value, that value that is established in that so-hated fiat currency. The happiness of a bitcoiner comes with the grow in price of that coin in the exchange. The more coins of the fiat currency they get from their bitcoins the happier they are. So it is all cyberpunk literature with a bit of TAZ philosophy, but bitcoin is no more than a very volatile "financial product", unfortunately , and since I am surrounded in IT departments by bitcoiners I am so tired of listening to people excusing themselves for choosing this overhyped movement over any other FX pair or metal. I understand that people want to get rich quickly and that is why they chose bitcoin, but they want to get rich by grabbing more and more of that fiat currency that they hold in the bank accounts. So let's be honest with ourselves, let's cut the rubbish and call it like it is: Greed on a very volatile market.  
    • The Fed wants to ban it or tax it. No central government likes crypto as its a form of financial anarchy. 
    • Very good point, Casey. They see Bitcoin and want to emulate it, or in the case of the Fed try and ban it. Bitcoin and Crypto have DEMAND. A Euro backed or $ backed crypto may not have them same demand, but will also be seen as currency. Crypto's lack of provenance (political and geographic) is a major USP. The market normally wins as governments know too well.
