How to enable trailing stop loss



Ive searched the help section and it says to go to Settings and then Prefernces and allow trailing stop loss.

However when i go to prefernces there is no option to enable trailing stop loss. 

Any help would be appreciated

Hi @yogitree,  what platform are you using? as you have described sounds like the instructions for the old IG platform  which is 'My account' > 'settings' > 'preferences' scroll down to the trailing stop section.

On the new IG platform there is a blue arrow drop down box next to 'Stop' in the deal ticket.

Is this for spreadbetting accounts only as the new platform is only on the spreadbetting.

Also in the old platform i still couldn't see the trailing stop-loss in the preferences section.

I've shown screenshots of the only available options below.

Hi @yogitree,  ok I see the problem, the option for the trailing stop should be directly below the Prorealtime option so you must be on a limited risk account where you can only use guaranteed stops. See pic below.

    • @Courage Thanks for that input, I am following this one. Being a newbie what news days and countries are best to look out for and what days are the big mover news days. Thanks
    • Spot on. The FX market is “influenced by policy makers through the purchase or sales of bonds  “ their mandate is to keep the confidence in their respective economies as high as possible.   That confidence is what the Fiat monetary system is based on, the moment that goes the system evaporates. If you recall a few years ago during Theresa Mays government, the key phrase was strong and stable? . That's their mandate. They can't let a currency move too far towards one extreme or the other.     So if you wana make money on fx you need to extend your time horizon or take the other position when things go too far into one extreme. I am only 32 but remember I  the dollar decline and the dollar inflation story that has been around for along time now. It's the same old story once you realise it's the new cycle, you learn to side step it and focus on what's important and that's the economy. Economic strength expresses itself in currency strength. Focus on that and you will get the big moces right.
