Stops on USA Stocks


BrinDD

Question

I'm trying to place a Stop Order on some  US shares (not CFD's) I'm holding. However when I try place the Sell order it only shows a Limit Option in the drop down. There is not option for a Stop or Trailing Stop?

Any advice appreciated. Thanks

Hi @BrinDD,

Thank you for your post on stops on US shares.

Kindly advice which type of account you are trying to place the stop to sell on? Please be mindful of the fact that no stop losses, trailing stops or guaranteed stops are available with share dealing.

Looking forward to your response,

KoketsoIG.

    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
    • To clarify my understanding. From my Usecase, I have three separate programs all operating interdependently from one another. A program to subscribe to tic data on a number of Epics via the LightStream API, another to grab historic on a number of Epics via the REST API, and finally another to manage positions via the REST API. I need to do this on my demo account initially to get API code stabilized. The IG website specifically says that I need separate API key for each distinct program connecting to IG over REST or LightStream. So in my understanding it looks like I need three API keys all for the demo account. Am I missing something or have I misunderstood how to use these API keys? I am aware of the API request limits and this is why I assumed you need a key per program. Currently I have one API key for the demo account and cannot seem to add more keys to the demo account? I have looked at the FAQ and cannot see an answer for my query.
