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?

    • It varies ... lol @ claim of 24/7* trading, with this footnote: * 24/7 excludes the 6 hours from 10pm Fri to 4am Sat, and 20 mins just before the weekday market opens on Sunday night. Do IG understand what 24/7 means?
    • Fund manager Mark Denning, who was part of a team running more than £229 billion of assets at Capital Group, has been forced to resigned after allegedly breaking investment rules. A BBC Panorama investigation – set to air tonight at 8.30pm – will accuse Denning of investing in shares which were also held by the funds he worked on. This is seen as a conflict of interest within fund management as a manager could potentially profit at the expense of his clients - the fund manager could use the significant assets of a fund to push up the share price of a company, benefiting his other investments. https://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/news/196565/fund-manager-resigns-ahead-of-damning-bbc-panorama-investigation.aspx   And how do his fellow financial professionals react to this?  Well they call him a 'uniquely talented' colleague.  Seems that his only fault was to get caught screwing the dumb retails clients over.    Let's face facts ... if you're 'little people' then you aren't safe ANYWHERE in the financial markets. You WILL get screwed over and eaten alive.
    • Good luck trying to keep up with all that 🤣
