Giant minimum stops

Guest 926Silver

Trying to trade certain instruments - GBP/USD, anything against swizz Francs, I am being required to enter with a huge sized stop loss.


This is highly frsutrating, and means I am unable to enter what look like good trades as the risk reward is rubbish.


Why is the guaranteed stop set so high?


Getting annoyed with IG on this.

The Franc is a manipulated currency and can therefore move loads when the government makes announcements and monetary policy. A guaranteed stop offered by IG can’t be bought in the market either so they are basically offering it as an insurance and charging that stop premium if it gets hit / triggered. As with all insurance because there is more risk the distance is higher to reduce the likelihood of it being needed or used/hit.


I get what you’re saying about it being a long distance away, but I guess you need to think of either doing a different size, or a different FX pair. Cable is only 8 points away at the moment for example.

    • Ontology is a high-performance, open-source blockchain that aims to revolutionize the way we approach digital identities, data sharing, and trust in the digital realm. One of the standout features of Ontology is its dual-token model, which separates the roles of ONT and ONG. While ONT serves as the staking tool for nodes and governance, ONG operates as the value-anchoring utility token for on-chain applications and transactions. This innovative approach mitigates the risk of turbulent fluctuations in the native asset value, ensuring a stable and efficient ecosystem. The ONG listing on Bitget is particularly exciting for several reasons. Firstly, it aligns with Ontology's recent announcement of a $10 million fund aimed at fueling the innovation and adoption of Decentralized Identity (DID) through the ONT and ONG tokens. This initiative underscores the project's commitment to empowering, educating, and evolving its ecosystem in exciting new ways.
