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.

Hi Biggins,

 

When you want to change your stop, you can either drag the line to the right point of your choice or press the X on the line and re-do the stop position.

 

Hope this helps.

    • Integrate v.11 of PRT with IG. Why are IG still using PRT v.10.3, when v11. which contains many significant improvements, was released over a year ago?
    • 1 last post - couldn't help myself!!! Simple 1 x 1 Gann Angles projected from the high/low price points - I'll admit that this is ultra advanced trading stuff here, the message here is two-fold The markets regardless of what you think or have been told are NOT random, they HAVE no choice but to work out a pre-set course according to their growth or decay Gann Angles are far far better at identifying support/resistance levels - BECAUSE the market or specifically price action is NOT 2D, we can clearly see price conforms to a grid system movement - that ain't 2Dimensional! You could blindly trade those gann angles if you have the right level of expertise and knowledge of them - look at the blue circles - price rallied then fell back to them and bounced pretty accurately, they won't all work and the highest swing high is under threat at which you can't project further levels from Again here's the secret of success - you could of skewed the R value into your favour by having a 20/25pt stop underneath, trailed a stop and made fantastic R value returns Gann said over 100 years ago "Markets are financial points of force and that EVERY low/high is connected to another low/high point of force in the FUTURE, as well as in the past" As you can clearly SEE - he was absolutely right - very few people look at the markets right, when you do you see things completely differently to most other traders/investors There's some real science behind markets moves - I might do a post in future months as understanding what is actually going on helps you see through the fog and makes things a bit clearer  I'll admit I've studied Gann for years and it is not easy, it is very hard to grasp - he hides hidden messages in his course that can throw you off for months and when you to apply his methods some just do not work
