Hello All, 

I will be on a limited risk account (seems like a sensible place to start for a n00b like myself).

I understand that you pay a premium for guaranteed stops and that's fine by me.

Usually this is expressed in a premium per point (which I understand) however sometimes it's expressed as a percentage eg 0.3%

What I don't know is what this is a percentage of; is it of the total size of the trade or the money borrowed??

Eg Long something at £10 per point with a guaranteed stop at 10 points gives £100 risk is the stop then 0.3% * £100 = 30p cause that seems kind of small given I might pay 3pts for a stop on something else (£30).

Or is it 0.3% of the total size of the money borrowed? Eg Long something at £10 per point which has 1000 base points gives £10,000 borrowed and thus £30 fee for the stop?

Second example seems more likely but any wisdom will be kindly received.

Cheers Angri

Hi @Angribob, when the premium is in:

- points - of the bet size (eg. 3pts premium is 3  X £10 per point = £30)

- percentage - of the bet size X price (eg. 0.3% premium is 0.3% X £ 10 per point X £ 1000 price = £30)

Also please note that the premium is paid only if the stop is triggered

I hope this helps.

    • When there's no volatility and very limited price action in the forex market what does a trader do? Are the only solutions/options: Risk more capital Use more leverage if possible Extend your trading time, meaning hold your trades longer Any other ideas?
    • Here's a catchy tune to have in your head while you 'just buy the fekking dip'.     Push it!
    • Hi RFSmithers, Thanks for the tips... But when I searched for trusted "ECN" broker in Australia for CFD Index trading, IG Market is among the returned result! So with what you suggested and what the search result I got, IG Market seems to be still the one to stick with for CFD Index trading. Please note that, regarding the market trend is to be against your trade or not, from my experience so far, I think it is really up to you on when to enter the trade, for example: - if you enter the trade at the time when the market is flat with no trend, then it is just like you jump into the calm water and then you make the big splash which could be against yourself - if you enter the trade at the time when the market is on trending, where: if you enter against the trend, then you will be eaten alive from there - FULL STOP - Period; however if you enter on riding the trend, then you will be picking up the fruits along the way through...   So with the above, to summarise, it seems to me that (of course - correct me if wrong): 1) IG Market is still the trusted ECN broker in Australia for CFD Index trading 2) A trader needs to know when to enter the trade to ensure s/he to ride on the trend to pick fruits, but not to be eaten alive.   Cheers Victor           What do you think? Cheers.
