Adding trailing stop to orders and open positions?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Pretty novice here but looking to re-platform from PLus500.

Just getting my head around demo mode, I cant seem to find a way to add a trailing stop to my open positions or in an order, is this possible? 

Orders screen im only able to add a guaranteed stop, open positions im only able to amend the stop/limit in a fixed position.

Hi @sketch

Thank you for reaching out. 

There are two ways to add a trailing stop. 

1. You can insert a trailing stop when putting in a market order to deal at the current price. This can be done under "Deal" (or Trade in he mobile app) from the dealing ticket on the platform.

2. From open positions. 

If you click in the stop box, it gives you the option to select the drop down error where you can find the option to add a trailing stop. You will need to add the following for the trailing stop to be accepted:

  • Stop Level Price level at which current position will close if no trailing advantages occur
  • Stop Distance Number of points the stop level should be away from the current price when trailing advantages occur
  • Step Distance Number of points the underlying market will need to move before trailing advantages occur

Thanks for this, great info.

 

Is it possible to add to an order? for example, if I find a signal I agree with but want to amend to a trailing stop? 

 

or would I need to wait for it to become an open opposition to amend?

Hi @sketch

We don't have the option to add it to an order. You might have to wait for the position to open to add the trailing stop.

Bonjour à tous,

J'étais aussi intérréssé par cette question pour placer un "stop suiveur" sur une position ouverte or je n'arrivais pas à mettre en applicatin la réponse de @OfentseIG ne voyant pas la liste déroulante, je viens de comprendre pourquoi. Donc j'ajoute à ce fil de discussion la solution pour ceux comme moi qui n'y arrive pas :

En fait il faut préciser que la solution ne fonctionne que si l'on est dans la fenêtre de toutes positions ouvertes mais pas si l'on ouvre la mini fenêtre de position ouverte depuis le graphique de la position (par double clic sur sur l'entête de ligne de position)

Peut-être @OfentseIG que l'équipe de développement pourrait modifier le codage pour que l'on puisse aussi ajouter le stop suiveur depuis le graphique ?

    • With BTC making its exponential highs, a couple new projects are springing up incredibly fast. The narratives popping up right now are gaming and AI projects. Through my research, I found a new gaming project with some good gaming use cases and tokenomics. The project is, flappyMoonbird. It is a web3 game metaverse with a Player vs Player based on a bird themed scope. At this moment, the project’s team has announced 3 games; Racing bird, AI birdnopoly and FlappymoonBird inclusive, these have gameplay and demo released. The game has also incorporated Play2Earn to its framework, while playing users are given latitude to play games casually to earn mystery boxes, and its native $FMB tokens and other prizes. After reading exhaustively about this project, I was on the lookout for where to buy it from. Reliable platforms like bitget have expressed intent to list it through its deposit to list activity. Consequently, by depositing some amount of it ($FMB) on the CEX, the platform will list the token and this will undoubtedly provide the project with further exposure just the same way it has done for some of its popular projects. From my personal experience, projects that are often incubated by the CEX in this manner turnout to perform exceedingly well. Taking a cue from projects like $CSIX and $GRIMACE that went through same procedure, after they got listed, the projects performed quite well and are still performing with very good price action thus far.  On a safer note, if the project doesn’t scale through the listing procedure, all funds can be withdrawn seamlessly. The project looks quite promising and I think with the platforms concerted efforts, it will get listed along with good price action.
