Stop Loss vs Net Off Order

Hi guys,

 

I've recently started my foray into forex market CFD's. One of my favourite currency pairs is GBP/TRY, but there always seems to be a rather large (3%) minimum stop.

 

I think I understand the difference between a force open order vs. a net off order, the first opening additional positions regardless and the second closing existing ones if they're in the opposite direction. I was wondering if it would be sensible and give some level of protection if I set a net off order in the opposite direction to an open position closer than the minimum stop?

 

For example, if I was to go long at 5.50 the minimum stop would be 5.335. If I was to then set a short order at 5.4 net off for the same size, would that offer some protection?

 

Thanks!

Thanks , certainly seems to work the way I predicted. Noted a downside being you still need sufficient margin to cover the order.

 

Anyone see any other downsides I might not be aware of?

GBP /TRY sounds a bit exotic

 

make sure you dont get filled on the stop first and open a new trade later

 

if for some reason you get a gap or something?

 

i dont know exactly how IG handle this?

 

If you are long 100 and stop 98 and a sellshort order at 99 and then you get a gap and price open at 95

where will you be filled and in what order?

    • Of course, the CEO is important, but today the role of the media is huge.  CZ has been known since 2017, but no one knows Richard Teng now. Even if a survey was conducted, Binance's CEO would still be defined as CZ by people.  Stock market confidence comes first. This is why Binance's SAFU security fund stands out and today Binance has 193 million users.

In 2017, a recent example of FOMO, investors bought cryptocurrencies at high prices and incurred losses. Those who bought crypto currencies in large amounts experienced losses. The Fomo effect also has an individual nature. Individuals may experience the fomo effect for their personal investments. Fomo is not just a mass urge. FOMO occurs as emotional behavior rather than rational thoughts. One of the simplest examples is that it quickly pushes investors to the thought that motivates the person, such as "those who have cryptocurrency live a luxurious life." FOMO, which pushes towards irrational behavior, psychologically causes rapid action. In order to avoid losses, investments are made based on concrete information and graphics, not on attractive stocks. How to Deal with the Feeling of Fomo? People who make their own plans and research the markets they will enter in advance become conscious and follow the markets. Improving themselves, exploring hobbies, and becoming calm will reduce the effects of fomo. Balancing the fomo causes you to buy cryptocurrencies, not to make hasty decisions, and to perceive what is happening around you as it is. Cryptocurrency buyers need to be able to make rational decisions. Investments may take shape with FOMO disease. While trying to take advantage of the opportunities offered by other investors, you may encounter large losses. Decisions made with emotional motivation lie behind untimely investments.

Extreme market conditions can change the general rules of the market. Buying cryptocurrencies based solely on increasing prices without doing research, reading charts, or technical analysis is an indication that we are caught up in FOMO.
