TRAILING STOP VIA PRT QUICK ACCES INTERFACE


GraHal

Question

Hello Everyone

 

Who would like to see Trailing Stops available via the PRT Quick Access Interface?

 

For some reason IG do not provide the above function and yet it is available and has been for over 18 months (or is it 21/2 years?) on the PRT provided version (v10.2 -****)

 

it shows as a 3rd button under the 'Stops' options as shown in the attached image (IG platform only has 2 Stop icons / options).

 

Anybody else noticed this, might usefully use this function, finds it annoying it's not there or would at a minimum like to know why it's not available?

 

Cheers

GraHal

Ha ... I wouldn't mind betting that IG don't provide Trailing Stops on the 'PRT Quick Access Interface' because of the increase in minimum stop overnight?

 

Easy solution there for IG is to set the minimum Trailing Stop to be the maximum that Stop goes to overnight?

 

I trade the Dax a lot and minimum Stop in the day is 6 points and it goes to 12 or so overnight ... so, as an example, make minimum Trail Stop allowed as 12 for 24/7 ??

 

All comments appreciated.

Hi 

 

Thanks for sharing your idea about the quick access interface on the ProRealTime platform. You may be interested to hear that we only recently had a meeting with the team at ProRealTime about the changes we may see in the future and going through the feedback we get about what we offer. 

 

The trailing stops feature is something that many traders do derive a lot of value out of and so rest assured I will echo the point you have made directly to the technical team at ProRealTime. 

 

I do hope that helps and I would like to encourage any feedback that you may have as we thrive on such creative ideas. 

 

Speak again soon!

Unfortunately the Trailing Stop don't always trailing on PRT or ProOrder and I have raised this issue last year via Tweeter.

 

See the image for today failure of TrailingStop of 64 pips and current profit is over 40pips and no trailing activities.TrailingStop.png

    • Look at various past recessions and you should notice that it WAS NOT the Economy that went down first. The markets went down first. The economy always lagged behind the market's demise. So, how is it that we are ALWAYS SURPRISED (most professionals in the business) ? Yes, the general public should be and is shocked, just like the politicians and the Mandarins. But the professionals too? Then how did they get to be called professionals at all, or be in that job?????? Fear is hyped up to DRAMATIC PROPORTIONS, The media will bombard us with dooms day scenarios, via their allies in industry. We have come across this time after time, time after time, after time. In fact during Brexit the same sort of tactic was used to confuse us all and put fear of getting out. Later we found that it was not like that at all. We face normal financial and economic dynamics based on HOW THE MARKET FORCES ACT OR REACT, OR FAIL TO ACT CORRECTLY, AND BAD GOVERNMENT POLICIES. Pundits offer governments "solutions", or do they really? All they offer is, with hindsight, plausible reasons and the same OLD "SOLUTIONS" THAT FAILED TO GENUINELY SOLVE PERMANENTLY THE PROBLEMS. Most have their pet theories as to how, QE, helicopter money, debt write offs for companies, subsidies, etc... USE THE SAME "solutions" as used in the past, repeating the same all, same all. Same all tactics, habits and practices, or is it malpractices? In the meantime how come the Central Bankers COULD NOT ANTICIPATE IT AND SOLVE IT? But wait! They have QE, INTEREST RATES and degradation of the currency (make our goods cheaper for abroad), that will fix it. DOES IT??? NOT REALLY. The reason for purchasing power of money going down over the decades is simply the inability to control or manage inflation / deflation dynamics and financial stability in the first place. There are BASIC FUNDAMENTALS  FOR FINANCIAL STABILITY THAT ARE RARELY CONSIDERED OR HANDLED. INSTEAD THE FOCUS IS ON INTEREST RATES AND SUBSIDIES AND A FEW OTHER FACTORS. We NEVER REALLY got out of the past recessions properly ---   JUST LOOK AT THE GDP GROWTH after each of the past several recessions and it has, on the whole, gotten to be less the next time round, overall. And the debts were not resolved by individuals. companies and others. Instead they were encouraged to feast on debts to get growth --- very low  interest rates   -- WOW, WHAT MAGIC. OUT WENT NATURAL ORGANIC GROWTH BASED ON MONEY PEOPLE HAVE FREE TO USE IN THEIR POCKETS. Artificial inducements seems to be the preferred way. No wonder things never solve fully and financial stress is maintained. Subsidies, write offs, QEs, laws passed to make individual bank accounts to be "taxed" above a certain limit to "help out" failing banks or when there is a run on the banks, that is a possible action in the future.  etc, etc, etc. Governments have been sold doggy ideas to steal individuals money  as a desperate measure to solve a calamity which THEY PUT OFF HANDLING FOR DECADES. It has been done in various countries in various ways in the past, e.g Cyprus 10% tax on accounts, and gold confiscations in some countries in the past, and  in several countries your cash that you carry in the pocket can be, and has been confiscated without doing any wrong because the laws passed after 9/11 allowed it so. The other way will be, in the future, banning paper money -- cash, and going digital. That will mean that full police state regarding financial control. Also, you then cannot take money out of the system. So if a bank run occurs, a big issue. And it will be great for negative interest rates charge. They have it worked out to save themselves after ruining the system themselves. Before 2007 the FED the then Chairman told many that booms and bust were over. Celebrate, bing on new debts. And so the malpractices  continued (afterall that is what gots encouraged). SO, IS A NEW RECESSION COMING? And what could it bring about? WHAT DO YOU THING?

    • Under new powers, the UK government is investigating the recently acquired stake in BT by the private French telecoms business Altice. Last December Patrick Drahi’s Altice group raised its stake in BT from 12.1 to 18%. The UK government is asking if this move breaches the National Security and investment Act passed last year.
