Guaranteed stop AND normal stop for a single position

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Am I right in thinking that it is not possible to have both a guaranteed stop AND a normal (tighter) stop for an open SB position?  If so, has any one had any luck in achieving the same result by some other means (e.g. by having a guaranteed stop for an open 'buy' position and a 'sell' order above the guaranteed stop level as the normal stop)?

Given the large minimum distance of guaranteed stops for SB positions, I tend to use normal stops only. But, there is always the risk that I could be crucified with a large overnight move.  Would be glad to hear people's thoughts on this.

Hi @Bjp1980, I think you are correct that you can't have a normal stop with a guaranteed stop but that you can have a reverse order with the same affect in the market. See the final post in this tread (note the Mods intervention was not concerning the point raised and that limited risk accounts expired in the EU with the recent ESMA ruling)

    • Euro Q4 2022 Fundamental Forecast: Euro Faces a Storm Into Year-End Coming into 3Q’22, the Euro was facing a litany of issues that prevented any sort of significant rebound: slowing economic growth; the Russian invasion of Ukraine; energy inventories; and concerns around a potential fragmentation of European bond markets..   Euro Q4 2022 Technical Forecast: EUR/USD Bearish Continuation Not too long ago 'parity' appeared unlikely. Now, it represents a rather ambitious level. Key levels to consider for a bearish continuation  
    • USD Q4 2022 Fundamental Forecast: USD Harnessed Fundamental Winds, Now a Threat There was no stopping the US Dollar through the third quarter as the world’s most liquid currency drew on the benefits of a striking yield advantage on an aggressive Federal Reserve rate hike regime.   USD Q4 2022 Technical Forecast: Still Bullish on the US Dollar USD has both the rate advantage while also being the safe-haven, positioning the Greenback for continued gains into the end of the year.  
    • Bitcoin Q4 2022 Fundamental Forecast: It’s Still One Trade All things considered, 3Q’22 wasn’t that bad for cryptocurrency markets and Bitcoin prices in particular, which fell by around -4.5% over the past three months.   Bitcoin Q4 2022 Technical Forecast: Lower Before Higher The outlook for BTC/USD this coming quarter to put simply is, lower before higher. As it currently stands there is the dollar and everything else, meaning that as the dollar propels higher just about everything else suffers, except volatility.
