Previously with Barclays stockbrokers we had the facility for stops and trailing stops as a way of limiting losses. I find the lack of this although I have suggested it a couple of times poor.
I am sure other people like us want to l8mit any possible losses on our shares.
I do not want to have to leverage to spreadbet as a way of doing this.
Alerts are no good in a fast moving market.
Although you can't specifically add a stop loss on the same deal ticket, you can manually set up the functionality so that when the market moves down, the order will execute to get out of your position. You can also set up a 'limit' to take profit as well. Unfortunately we don't currently offer trailing stop losses on a share dealing account, but I will make sure this is submitted as feedback.
