Using guaranteed stops to go very long but cap maximum loss- request for Ig to automate


Recommended Posts

I like to use the above spread betting strategy eg on a stock I have followed and researched very carefully which appears to have significant upside and limited downside and as a way to profit from multibagging. However it’s extremely fiddly to enter the trades

1) Ig does not automate eg placing a £60 max loss bet using a £300k underlying with guaranteed stop nor does it make clear the maximum guaranteed stop amount for the stock at each price.
 

2)So a stock trading at £8/800p would require a bet of £375 per point and a guaranteed stop at £6.72/672p.

3) But the maximum bet at each price may be £25 so this would require 15 trades to be placed at incremental guaranteed stop prices. 
 

4) in order to reach an average guaranteed stop of 672p placing of those 15 trades would be very fiddly to work out what stop price each should be placed at…

so couldn’t Ig automate this?
