TRAILING STOP VIA PRT QUICK ACCES INTERFACE

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

Hi All,

So just to confirm can you use trailing stops on a PRT automated system that is connected to an an IG account ?

Kind Regards,

    • Hey @dmedin I've spoken to the marketing team about this. Although we have the footnote regarding the 6 hour time off, I do see where you're coming from so I will pass on the information. Luckily they sit very close to me!  Thanks for leaving your feedback
    • Bitcoin continues to follow my road map.  The 8800 level remains a vital resistance zone but right now a more important zone of support is coming up.  This is an area I highlighted previously as a make or break as I feel a break lower through this area (circa 7200, the Fib 62% level, or between 7000-7400) would suggest a full breakdown in the market and possibly signaling the end is nigh. The fundamentals could be construed as supporting this scenario if you believe the price action is more indicative of a highly speculative mania.  Certainly the % or IG traders Long suggests that everyone is eager for another massive rally, despite the technicals...  In order for crypto to supplant either Gold as a store of value or Fiat currency as a means of barter the speculation has to stop and cryptos like Bitcoin (well in fact for the ultimate vision to become reality there can be only one really) have to be essentially valueless (in the sense that it cannot be valued in USD).  Crypto has to resolve the split personality issue as well.  Is it a challenge to Gold or a challenge to Fiat?  Can it credibly be both?  If we get a major financial system crash in the near term I don't think any of the Cryptos will be sufficiently established to be either.  So that leaves speculation for now and such markets are not much different to other speculative financial markets so for now I am leaning towards a bounce off the bottom of the consolidation Triangle (maybe around the Fib 62%) and a final rally. If that occurs then the projection for a rally end is about 18000, which is lower than the previous ATH as around the Fib 88.6% level.  However that unclosed gap still lurks around 6000...  Interestingly the 8800 level is setting up to align with a break of the upper Triangle line.  If we do see a bounce then the next big make or break will be a test of that resistance zone and a breakout of that to the upside should herald a big rally phase.
