View stop and limit as dollar amount

Recommended Posts

I’m use to trading on crypto exchanges where when you set your take profit and stop loss you can see the resulting amount. For example if I enter at $10 and set a take profit at $15 the platform will show me that I will make a profit of x. I can’t seem to see how to do this on IG. 

On IG the stop and limit inputs only show the value and nothing else.

Secondly it looks like I can drag the stop all the way down to zero and it does not validate which goes back to my first question of how much loss I would take if my stop loss is hit. 

I have attached an example of a crypto platform showing the potential profit and loss of the stop and limit to show you what I mean  

Hope this makes sense.

It looks like mine is the other way around, if I set it to 'pts away' I can see a currency value, otherwise I see the pts. See screenshot. 

Is there a way to see this in my native currency so it's easier to gauge risk? Because right now for example based on that screenshot I'd have to calculate 2.75 to CHF is let's say $4, so then if the stop is hit, does that deduct from the 'margin' amount or the 'available' amount.

    • I believe DOG, as a memecoin is already quite popular and making a buzz. But as to your question, there are always new entries into the crypto space and when a reputable CEX like Bitget list it, it will substantially expose it to new communities and potential investors...    So all in all, I believe it will be good for DOG and it's future prospects! 
    • Sometimes ago, there was a CEX offering something similar but it was for new users and I even got to know about it a bit too late so I just didn't bother.   I think it's always great to see a CEX like Bitget offering this kinda promo for both new and existing users...    Thanks OP for the early heads up 👍
    • I saw Taiko on my TL yesterday but I didn't particularly pay much attention to it... But it seem they are on a good path and have forged some reputable partnerships along the way...  I have to say it's association with big guns of the industry like OKX, Kucoin etc makes it a good prospect and if you can get some of the coins early in the Bitget Pre-Market trading as you said, it will probably be a good investment in a long run!
