Trend line trailing stop

I'd really like the ability to have a stop track a trendline / trail based on time rather than distance.

I generally use a trendline for my exits and to be able to 'fire and forget' would be great!

Hi ,

 

Welcome to the IG community!

 

Thanks for your feedback. We really enjoy such comments as it is these very ideas that we have acted on to help better improve many elements of out trading platform as well as the service we offer. 

 

The point you have made I can see the value in and so I will be sure to pass this on to the relevant team as this could be useful to many strategies!

 

You may be interested in the ProRealTime platform that we also offer, as this has many advanced trading tools, such as being able to set market orders according to a trendline that you may find use of. Below is a link that will tell you more about the platform and you can access this from the 'Tools' section in the IG platform.

I would also like to use trend lines as stop losses but as far as I am aware this is not possible on PRT as you suggest, unless you are trading intra day?

 

I was informed by one of your staff that oblique parallel trend line Limit Orders were only good while you are logged onto the charts and as soon as you log off all orders of this type are cancelled.

 

TimP could you clarify these orders for us please, because like most people I take trades lasting at least a few days and this is something I would absolutely love to use.

 

Thank you

Hi 

 

The oblique orders are refered also as Pending soft orders in the platform and are stored on the wokstation only. With that in mind closing the platform will remove these orders.

 

I would very much agree with you about being able to have these active for longer periods and so the only way I could think that would be done would be if the trades would be saved on ProRealTimes order server, for which I will contact them to find out if this is something that is firstly possible and secondly if they have any plans in the future for it.

 

I hope that helps!

    • The recent turbulence in the market has resulted in significant losses and liquidations for many traders. While futures trading offers the potential for rapid portfolio growth, it also carries considerable risks, demanding both bravery and a strong belief in technical analysis (TA). However, despite my attempts, futures trading hasn't been my strong suit. Creating a resilient crypto portfolio doesn't necessarily mean diving into high-risk ventures like futures trading. It took me some time to realize that there are alternative, nearly risk-free methods to build a solid portfolio. Yet, the allure of quick profits in crypto often overshadows the patience required for these strategies. Whether you're involved in futures or spot trading, the market's unpredictability can lead to significant losses, as demonstrated by the recent downturn affecting BTC and most altcoins. Many traders found themselves unprepared, lacking sufficient USDT reserves for dollar-cost averaging (DCA) during market recoveries. Nevertheless, there is hope. For those looking to maximize profits while minimizing risks, products such as launchpools, launchpads, or PoolX offer promising opportunities. Available on various top centralized exchanges (CEX), these platforms involve staking assets like USDT, BGB, BNB, or OKB, depending on the exchange. One observation I've noted is that whenever an exchange announces a launchpool or launchpad event, the value of the exchange token tends to soar. This surge is fueled by users eager to participate and earn complimentary tokens. Following the event, participants can benefit from both the acquired tokens and the increased value of the exchange token. This approach has proven successful for me, as evidenced by the recent ENA launchpool event on Bitget. Have you explored similar opportunities in the past? Please feel free to share your experiences.
