what happens your trade when a stock splits

Just wondering what happens your trade on a particular stock when that stock splits.  For example recently PTSI and FSFG (both US stocks) split which drove the share price way down.  What would have happened my position had I a long position in one or both of these stocks?  The new price would have taken gapped miles past any potential stop I would have had.

Hi Guest Peter

Thanks for your question. What will happen to your shares position if a company performs a stock split or consolidation ? If you have a position on a company which performs a stock split or consolidation, we’ll close your original position at its opening level and open a new trade on your behalf. The new position will reflect the ratio of the split/consolidation, ensuring that you don’t gain or lose any capital in the process.

Any attached stops or limits will be adjusted according to the terms of the split/consolidation to ensure your monetary risk remains the same.

Stock split example

Apple announce a stock split at a ratio of 10-1. On the ex-date, you have 100 shares trading at $5 per share.

We close your original position, and open a new one. You now have 1000 shares trading at $0.50 per share – so the total size of your position remains the same.

Please note: This information is intended as a generic example, and subject to change at any point. It may not apply in every scenario.

 

All the best - MongiIG

    • I'm currently bullish on AI project tokens, especially on Bitget, and I'm excited about their symbiotic relationship with blockchain technology, which is driving financial inclusion and innovation. Projects like SORA, SingularityNET's AGIX, The Graph (GRT), and Nebula AI's NMT are leading the way in transformative advancements across various sectors.
    • I trade leveraged futures on Binance so I'm going to miss them, not that much though cos I also use Bitget exchange, and they have high liquidity and low fees, So I will just move my funds there and continue leveraged trading.
    • If you've tried using Ethereum, you know it can get slow and expensive. Think of Starknet as a helper that makes everything faster and cheaper. It does this by taking a bunch of transactions, squishing them into one, and then processing that one. This means more transactions can happen at once without clogging up the system. For people making apps on the blockchain (they call these dApps), Starknet is like a dream come true because it lets their apps handle a lot more users without slowing down. It also gives them the freedom to make their apps work just how they want, making things better for users. When it comes to making money, Starknet charges fees to use its network and lets people 'stake' their coins – that's like putting your money in a savings account that helps the network run, and you get a little reward for that. So, what do you think about Starknet? It's all about helping Ethereum handle more action without any hassle. Could be a big deal for how we use digital money, right?
