Setting a Daily Loss Limit

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have Googled and searched the forums however unable to find an answer for this.

Am I able to set a Daily Loss Limit for myself? So once the limit is hit, I am blocked from placing any more trades until the following day.

This seems like a basic request that a lot of brokers offer.

thanks

Hi @garethw,

We do not offer the a Daily Loss limit on our accounts. Nevertheless, we do have Margin call policy that is applying on leverage accounts .

Margin call is the term for when the equity on your account – the total capital you have deposited plus or minus any profits or losses – drops below your margin requirement. You can find both figures listed at the top of the IG platform.

You will get notified when your equity drop beneath 99% and 75% of your margin requirements. At 50% we will automatically close your positions.

Please keep in mind that it is your responsibility to keep an eye on it, as with high volatility your equity can drop below 50% in a short period of time.

Please find more details about margin call on this link here.

All the best - Arvin

    • Interesting data from the latest weekly PHE covid report download (as highlighted in the 'UK Vaccination Programme Part 1'. (article linked several posts above)   Attendance to emergency care and deaths from Covid (Delta)   6 months 1 Feb to 29 Aug 2021Unvaxxed     219,716Vaxxed         222,693     (27,993 + 80,877 + 113,823)   So obviously the vaccines do nothing to reduce infection and illness.But when looking at deaths alone the vaxxed are worse off. 68 per cent of covid deaths when including the partially ‘vaccinated’; while the ‘unvaccinated’ made up less than 30 per cent, when the vaxxed are less than 60% of the population.   So the Vaccines don't work they just make things worse. Reminder that when the drug companies said their vaccines had an efficacy of 95% what they meant was the difference between 0.88% (next to nothing) and 0.04% (also next to nothing). But that was against the now extinct Alpha not the now dominant vaccine resistant Delta (and all subsequent variants).   https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1014926/Technical_Briefing_22_21_09_02.pdf
    • The DMA platform is a special download so you would know if you had it. The IG web based platform as used by most clients is as described below.
    • @Caseynotesthanks for the reply. How do I know if I am trading at DMA platform or any other.
