Trend line trailing stop


Recommended Posts

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 hope that helps!

The IG man is telling you straight, look at the ProRealtime platform. You can very simply create oblique parallel trend line Limit Orders to reverse (and therefore cancel) your trade. Don't be put off by the charge for using the ProRealtime platform, as David Jones (unfortunately no longer with IG) told us, if at the end of the month you haven't made a trade and will therefore incure a charge, just hit the enter then immediately hit the exit, do that twice and you have done your two trades for the month. The home IG platform is *****, instead they pay ProRealtime to let you use the ProRealtime platform, use it.

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!

    • IG's "Trade of the Week" video (26-Apr) suggested going LONG on GBPCAD. After I'd put on a small position I read your post on CAD strength. I wished I'd seen your post first  I was stopped out within a few days.
    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........
