    • Hi, sorry to be too late but a reminder that for when the market moves against your week day position over the weekend consider a hedging position in the weekend market in the opposite direction to your weekday trade so that overall your PnL remains fixed.
    • I don’t think you can as the market is closed - I’ve researched this and if “slippage” occurs and you have a “normal stop loss” which happens to be lower than opening price then you get executed at opening price, (which I guess is 11pm tonight)  apparently you need to select “guaranteed stop loss” to allow yourself to guarantee a stop at your chosen price.  fingers crossed. I’m in too deep really, it’s been an awful weekend worrying!!🤦🏼
    • Hi Rob, pretty sure you can still change your stop loss or take it off entirely, if that was something you wanted to do, just go into positions and adjust or if you wanted to take off you delete and press return, good luck with whatever you decide
