Add trailing stop to a limit order and guaranteed trailing stops


Recommended Posts

Guest NadelinaIG

Hi @zala, a few people have requested the option to automatically add a trailing stop to a limit order to open which we have passed onto the relevant dev teams. Unfortunately at the moment we don't have a firm roadmap on delivery as the current stop/trailing stop format relies on other logic in the back end which means we can't simply just switch it on. I shall continue to feed back to the relevant teams and I'll look to update Community members if the above changes.

When it comes to guaranteed trailing stops this isn't something which we have seen as much feedback on, however I will also look to pass this on to the relevant teams. In the meantime, whilst I know it's a manual process, you could look to set an alert for when the market moves 'x' points in your favor and then go in and change the stop manually. I appreciate this is by no means perfect, however it is currently the only work around. 

Please note that when doing the end of month report, we collect feedback from the forum and we will add your comment to that report for consideration of the relevant team. If anyone else is looking for either of the above features, please add to the request below.

Dear @NadelinaIG.

Guaranteed trailing stops serve the purpose of protecting one's capital in terms of trading on a swing-term basis.
It prevents unpredictable market gaps that could erase substantial gains.

Options for both trailing-stop-limit orders and guaranteed-trailing-stop-limit orders should exist as it increases the universe of possibilities in terms of executing proper risk management.

I think guaranteed trailing stops are a must. I can't see any fundamental disadvantage to IG by making it happen. IG's systems could be programmed to prevent an incremental trailing step and distance total that was not consistent with an increased guaranteed stop.

So if guaranteed stops increased to 750pts but the distance and trailing step was too small, then the position would not change. This would be equal to when we have to move stops manually. 

If this could be implemented it would make IG very competitive and attractive to all traders everywhere.

Given that Trailing stops are available with Non Guaranteed Stops, I can't understand 6 months on from the initial post why they are still not automatically available for Guaranteed Stops? Surely, much of the back end coding to allow this must already exist, and just needs a tweak. Forcing people to manually edit stops on guaranteed stops  seems like a punishment, When trailing stops were introduced why did someone take specific action not to apply them universally to all categories of stops. What was the flawed logic behind this decision?

    • I've always found the idea of combining Web3 and real estate intriguing. Now, with Parcl Protocol from Parcl Labs, that curiosity is becoming tangible. This platform offers a new approach to investing in real estate prices from cities like Miami Beach and New York, using current price data. What makes Parcl unique is its emphasis on decentralized real estate trading. It enables the buying and selling of real estate assets anytime, anywhere, through a decentralized exchange.If you are holding PRCL their native token you can  participate in governing the Protocol. Plus, there are perks like Perpetual Network Incentives, offering extra benefits to users. The numbers tell an impressive story: Parcl Protocol is a notable DeFi app in the Solana ecosystem, with over $180M+ locked in. In a short span, it has facilitated trades of over 2.1M square feet of real estate exposure, equivalent to 1,400+ properties.The total traded volume? A significant $940M+.with tokens listing on exchanges like Bitget, the platform's reach and potential only continue to grow, Could Parcl be a game-changer in real estate? (Edited)

    • Parcl Labs' decentralized perpetuals exchange, Parcl (PRCL), has carved a unique niche in the DeFi space. Focused on real estate synthetics, Parcl allows users to gain exposure to the price movements of real-world cities like Miami Beach and New York through cutting-edge, real-time price feeds. This innovative approach has propelled Parcl to the top spot in terms of Total Value Locked (TVL) within the Solana ecosystem, exceeding a staggering $180 million. Parcl's success is further demonstrated by the impressive activity on its V3 exchange. Within a few short months, users have facilitated the trading of over 2.1 million square feet of notional real estate exposure, equivalent to over 1,400 physical properties. The total notional volume traded on V3 to date surpasses a remarkable $940 million. Additionally, the PRCL token itself is listed on the Bitget exchange, providing further accessibility and potential for the project.
