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 During periods of high volatility on any asset the availability of a guaranteed stop is withdrawn and as a limited risk account must have a guaranteed stop the order will be refused.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;

    • APAC brief - 21 Mar
      Market action proves it again: this market hinges on the Fed: The US Fed has proven itself as the most important game in town for traders. The FOMC met this morning, and lo-and-behold: the dovish Fed has proven more dovish than previously thought; the patient Fed has proven more patient that previously thought. Interest rates have remained on hold, but everyone knew that was to be the case today. It was about the dot-plots, the neutral-rate, the economic projections, and the balance sheet run-off. On all accounts, the Fed has downgraded their views on the outlook. And boy, have markets responded. The S&P500 has proven its major-sensitivity to FOMC policy and whipsawed alongside a fall in US Treasury yields, as traders price-in rate cuts from the Fed in the future.


      The US Dollar sends some asset classes into a tizz: The US Dollar has tumbled across the board consequently, pushing gold prices higher. The Australian Dollar, even for all its current unattractiveness, has burst higher, to be trading back toward the 0.7150 mark. Commodity prices, especially those of thriving industrial metals, have also rallied courtesy of the weaker greenback. Emerging market currencies are collectively stronger, too. This is all coming because traders are more-or-less betting that the Fed is at the end of its hiking cycle, and financial conditions will not be constricted by policy-maker intervention. Relatively cheap money will continue to flow, as yields remain depressed, and allow for the (sometimes wonton) risk-taking conditions that markets have grown used to in the past decade.
