Stop/limit/profit/loss values on chart


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I wonder if anybody knows how to change the stop loss on the charts for an existing existing trade, over to currency rather than points. Sorry if I am being rather vague, but can't think of another way to put it.

 

It seems to work on IOS but not on Windows platform.

 

Many thanks.

To add a stop via the charts on the new web trading platform would require the following method: On the open position click the link or the box telling you your size.

Click, hold, and drag down the button that says stop / limit. The chart will known whether or not this is a stop or limit depending on which way you drag. Release and click submit to have it submitted. You will see a confirm if it was successful.

So how do you now change the stop loss to read a currency figure instead of points. It works on IOS, but not in Windows.

 

The reason for me asking is that I want to know in money terms where I  am setting the stop loss.

Hi - using the method above will show the financial cost (as shown below in the green circle). Please remember that with a non-guaranteed stop this financial value is only an indication as the market could slip over this level and you could be filled at a worse price.

    • What funds did you have to cover your margins? Overnight the ASX200 dropped to 7000 so all your positions would have been in a loss situation & if you had insufficient margin, they would close the positions.
    • Hi   I had 2 long positions that were opened. I did not put any order to close them ie I was just leaving them opened without stop loss any the profit target . But suddenly they were closed this morning? Why?
    • Yes - there was a consolidation action of 1 for 1500 of these securities : https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/market/LSE20210504170819_3963598/GraniteShares-3STS-Reverse-split-Consolidation I've been on chat and on the phone to IG - they've done the consolidation, but still not updated the correct prices, which should of course also rise by ~1,500 on a ceteris paribus basis (all things the same). At the time of writing this, TSLA has dropped a further 2.4% today, so these securities ought to have risen ~ 7.2% (3x short TSLA) on the day.  The IG person I spoke with this evening promised me he would check with the relevant team and revert. My call was very late in the day (after 6pm) so I trust that they will have this resolved in the morning. If not, I do suggest calling again.
