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 , 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?

    • Asia stock indices mostly advance as China consumer prices drop the most in three years after another positive session in the US on Friday, shrugging off stronger-than-expected US jobs data ahead of Wednesday's FOMC meeting. With the ECB and BOE meeting on Thursday, volatility is likely to pick up in the middle of the week. While today's economic calendar is devoid of any market moving data, Tuesday should be more interesting with UK unemployment, Germany ZEW economic sentiment and the US inflation data releases.   
    • JTO strategic focus on community driven governance and network management will greatly influence and impact the Solana ecosystem, and that could be seen in the tokens allocation ratio to validators and the community. With the success of other projects like BLUR, PYTH, JUP and the incredible JTO all under Solana ecosystem, Solana is on the path to match up or even displace Ethereum as Defi king hence it's a good time to buy and HODL Sol. NFA tho.
