Limited Risk trading is not available on this market

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.

Question

Hi,

I'm new to IG and playing around with the dashboard. On some markets I get the message 'Limited Risk trading is not available on this market at this time.' Why is this, because they are deemed to be too volatile for a beginner?

Thanks in advance

Michael

Hi @MSEdge, essentially you are correct. During periods of high volatility on any asset the availability of a guaranteed stop is withdrawn and as a limited risk account must have a guaranteed stop the order will be refused. Bear in mind though that it is only temporary and can change throughout the day so worth repeated attempts.

Hi I cannot see a " guaranteed stop" option?

Hi @LoN,  the answer was referring to limited risk accounts no longer available in the UK.

On the new platform you should see the guarantee stop option from the dropdown box on the deal ticket, click the very small blue arrow (see pic below).

Thank you for your answer.

I'm in the South African market. It doesn't seem to have that option.

@LoN, just looked at the IG South Africa site and they do have guaranteed stops, check your account type as you may be on a limited risk account and so all your stops are automatically guaranteed stops. see pic;

    • Bitcoin at 1:30 pm UK time is still holding up above $9k level which is good so far. It may not last and by tomorrow morning could be back below $9k or shooting up to $10k such is the unpredictability and volatility in Bitcoin. 
    • I wanted to just share the 'Monthly' Silver chart. I shall let you all draw your own conclusions and make your own predictions / assumptions.  Now have a look at the 'Weekly' chart below: For me one could argue that all the downside is played into Silver and any sight of significant bad new could lead to immense upside. It would be a 'Contrarian' type investment / trade but it would also be a 'buy and hope' investment and style. There is nothing wrong with that as long as one accepts that is what it may be. Right now time for some serious 'Flooding'. Apologies if you do not get a chance to this this post or my previous post on this thread due to severe 'Flooding'. The weather is bad in the UK. 😂
