Why can't we use manual stop orders to offset margin requirements for existing positions?

This thread contains an account type known as "Limited Risk". Due to regulatory changes this account type no longer applies for European countries. If you have any questions relating to this, or wish to continue the discussion, please start a new thread.

I have the un eviable position of having a limited risk account (why the **** do these exist anyway?), so my bitcoin minimum stop is very high. IG, can't you make manual stop orders reduce existing margin?

    • I am asking about maximums, especially during 5pm est, not where the live spread is, you can't practically monitor spreads by glancing at live data. Obviously these things vary by liquidity etc., and some brokers cap maximum spreads during 5pm EST on some pairs, even if they are not capped, there are often consistent maximums, so this data is extremely important. I assume by the lack of replies IG does not publish historical spread data at all, like e.g, Oanda does (https://www1.oanda.com/forex-trading/markets/recent), and Saxobank does (https://www.home.saxo/nb-no/rates-and-conditions/forex/classic-historical-fx-spreads). If that is the case, is there some spread monitor tool that can be used on the desktop or web platform? Thanks.
