Stop Loss on Share dealing account


Question

Hello, I find that on my share dealing account of 30 holdings, I can only place a stop loss on 25 of them but not on the other 5 , MWE, AVG, RGBP, GPM, XPD. Why is this ? and is there any way of finding out before i buy a share whether i can place a stop loss on it, as it is basic risk management.

Hello, 

The stop market order is not available on stocks which are bought/sold through RSP quotes (Market Maker stocks).

All the stocks you have mentioned are Market Maker stocks and they don't support Stop market orders. 

Before making purchases, you can always check in the deal ticket if the market order on Exchange is available. If that's not the case (as in the example below) you won't be able to use Stop Market orders.

I hope this helps!

    • @Caseynotesthanks for the reply. How do I know if I am trading at DMA platform or any other.       
    • Hi, all brokers are market makers to some extent. If you are trading on the Direct Market Access (DMA) platform then you are dealing on the exchange through IG but if using any other platform then IG looks to match those trades inhouse matching shorts to longs. Any excess they hedge on the exchange themselves.  So IG aren't taking the other side of your trade, they are covered whether you win or lose and they make on the spread from both parties. If they need to hedge they still win because they get a better spread than what they pass on to you.  
    • Err, I've had all my real vaccines, the ones that completed safety trials, have also had special vaxxes when had to present proof when travelling to a country were there were dangerous diseases present, no problem. But experimental gene therapy that has no medium or long term risk data for a disease that, according to the FDA, has just a 1 in 250,000 risk, and needing to present proof to go to a restaurant or club in my home town - no, this is not about a virus.   Note that the FDA officials that the Biden admin pressured into giving early FDA approval for these vaxxes both resigned. FDA panel just voted 16-3 AGAINST approving the boosters This slide was shown at their meeting.
