Hi Guys 

I have started new training and implementing their strategies. I would manually like to manage my risk according to the strategy and not use the guarantee stop that IG platform is implementing. How do I change or switch this option off?

Hi @JacFlowTrade,

You most likely have a limited risk account at the moment that requires you to attach a Guaranteed stop to your positions.
Once you have traded a bit longer with IG you will be eligible for a standard account( meaning no need to attach guaranteed stops) .

If you need further information, please reach out to helpdesk.au@ig.com.

All the best - Arvin

This makes no sense to me as I want to reduce my risk on some trades but it won't let me.  This is really frustrating trading a well managed strategy and really does not put risk reward in my favour. I have been trading with IG for nearly a year surly that should be enough with a demo and live account. If I can't get a normal account I will sadly have to get another broker which is not ideal but at least I can managed my risk more effectively which is ultimately the name of the game. 

Hope we can sort this out.

Hi @JacFlowTrade,

It should be all sorted now, and you should be able to force open positions ( opposite directions).

    • BRENT CRUDE OIL (LCOC1) TALKING POINTS Demand-side factors continue to dominate. Will OPEC trim supply again? BRENT CRUDE OIL FUNDAMENTAL BACKDROP Brent crude oil rallied yesterday on the back of a weaker U.S. dollar coupled with a notable decrease in U.S. crude oil stockpiles as revealed in the EIA weekly report. This morning has seen a resumption of the downward trend as the dollar is bid once more, making yesterday’s move largely attributed to oversold levels as well as quarter-end rebalancing. Markets are still focused on demand destruction and a global recession as opposed to supply-side concerns. Full article: Sep 29, 2022 | DailyFX Warren Venketas, Analyst
