Question

If the market goes against me on the new knock outs will extra funds be required to cover the fall or is the initial margin all that is required ?

Also at the end of the set time what if anything is returned to my account if 

1 the position is in positive territory

2 the position is in negative territory

KO's are not subject to the 50% close out rule, and therefore if the market moves against you you may have to deposit more funds to cover your position. (You're account is still covered by the negative balance protection rule though). 

If the position closes in a positive your margin is freed up and you take your profit, whilst if it settles against you your margin is freed up and any losses are deducted. 

Further basic info

You buy a bull knock-out if you believe the price of the underlying market will rise. The knock-out levels available will be below the current market price.

You buy a bear knock-out if you believe the price of the underlying market will fall.  The knock-out levels available will be above the current market price. 

The maximum loss on a knock-out is the premium (price of the option), plus the knock-out premium, payable only if your position is knocked-out. 

Each Knock-out has an expiry of 12 months, but you can sell out of your position before the expiry.

The Knock-out will settle basis IG’s underlying bid/offer price and you can calculate the corresponding profit or loss just as you would with any other spreadbet or CFD trade:

(Difference between opening and closing price) x (amount/point)

So with Knock-outs there are...No Stop Entries or Orders available?

No "Stops" that I can actively move to protect a winning trade?

In other words when I activate a trade or this KO option, I will become a screen slave just in case the position starts to go sour?

Hi Joe - please feel free to login (top right) if you have an IG account so you are notified of any replies. 

When you open a KO, you have to input a KO Level in the first field - this is basically your stop level and it is guaranteed irrespective of market movements, liquidity or gaps during closed periods. As noted you can't currently move these - this is because this is basically an option (with a delta one movement) so you must think of this as your strike price. Going forwards we will be looking to add the option to have another moveable Non-GStop to the position which can sit before the KO Level.

As stated you can't set a working order to open a trade. 

Please note that this is the first iteration of this completely new asset asset type and we are looking for continued feedback to further refine the offering.

It looks like for the current KO options, the premium - intrinsic is still 2 points + around 3points spread for HS50. For the 2points that's more than what it would cost me to put a stop in... just curious if there's any more advantages to using the KO vs stop we input ourselves. thanks.

KOs are a 'guaranteed' stop, very similar to what youd see buying an option. I.e. guarateed you can't lose more than that initial premium.

    • Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Counter Trend Mode - Corrective Structure -Zigzag for wave (B) Position - Wave A of (B) Direction - Wave A is still in play Details -  As it appears the decline from 720’4 will most likely continue lower, we have adjusted the previous count. Price is now very likely in wave A of (B) against the 523’6 low. Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Since late May, wheat has declined over 14% from 720, indicating that the commodity has retraced approximately half of the impulse rally that occurred between March 11th and May 28th. In the medium term, the move from March 11th remains a positive correction of the long-term bearish trend that spanned from March 2022 to March 2024—a two-year trend.   Daily Chart Analysis: On the daily chart, wheat completed a bearish impulse wave from March 2022 at 523’6 in March 2024. Following this trend, a corrective phase was anticipated in the opposite direction. The impulse reaction that concluded wave (A) at the May 2024 peak is part of this larger bullish correction. Given that wave (A) is an impulse, we can expect at least a zigzag structure or possibly a double zigzag if the bullish correction extends over several months. Following the path of least resistance, a simple zigzag structure—wave (A)-(B)-(C)—is highly probable. Currently, the price is correcting wave (A) downwards in wave (B). Provided that the ongoing decline stays above 523’6, an extension higher is expected. However, wave (B) does not appear to be finished yet, as evident from the H4 chart.   H4 Chart Analysis: On the H4 chart, the price seems to be in wave A of (B), which is evolving into an impulse structure. We anticipate a typical zigzag structure for wave (B). The invalidation level at 523’6 should not be breached. If it is, the long-term bearish trend from March 2022 will likely resume, confirming that the bullish correction from March 2024 has concluded.   Summary: Wheat has seen a significant decline since late May, retracing half of its recent impulse rally. The medium-term trend from March 11th remains a positive correction within the context of a long-term bearish trend that lasted two years. On the daily chart, the completion of the bearish impulse wave in March 2024 was followed by a bullish correction, which is currently in wave (B) of a zigzag structure. The H4 chart suggests that wave A of (B) is forming an impulse structure, with expectations of a typical zigzag correction.   Traders should monitor the key level of 523’6. If this level holds, the bullish correction is likely to continue with a potential extension higher. However, a breach below 523’6 would invalidate this scenario, signaling a continuation of the long-term bearish trend.  Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
