Stop entry order

Guest GBro


Apologies for simple question, but how do I enter a stop entry order (e.g., enter a long trade only when price hits specified level above current market price)?

Hi @GBro and others might be interested in the IG webinar at 6 pm this evening on the use of the new platform,

register here; https://www.ig.com/uk/learn-to-trade/ig-academy/sessions?CHID=9&REF=IG&SM=TW

Assuming you are using the new web based platform, click on the 'order' tab > select size and stop loss (and target limit if required) > enter the price level to enter trade at, then click buy or sell. Check the details then click the 'place stop order' at the bottom.

If looking to buy or sell straight away at market use the 'deal' tab and ticket.

    • In my opinion, higher lev is for scalpers only! For day or swing traders, either spot or lower lev is always recommended!
    • Just now, according to Glassnode data, the number of addresses holding more than 100 BTC has reached a four-month low, currently standing at 15,955.
    • Bitcoin and other major crypto experienced a dip in value on Thursday, erasing gains made earlier in the week. The decline came after the Federal Reserve signaled that interest rates would remain high for an extended period, with Bitcoin retreating 2.3% to $26.5K. Despite the bearish pressure,  the founder and CEO of Bitcoin joint mining company Xive,  Didar stated that the stagnant rate increase is positive for Bitcoin. He suggested that this could reduce the attractiveness of mainstream financial assets to institutional investors in the long term, potentially driving a new rally in Bitcoin's price. Major altcoins and exchange tokens also struggled on Thursday, with ETH changing hands at $1,585, down about 2.6% from Wednesday. Other altcoins such as BNB and BGB also experienced losses. Despite these challenges, some analysts believe that Bitcoin is likely to remain within its recent range between $25,000 and $30,000. Riyad from digital asset data platform Kaiko, noted that the market needs a catalyst to mount any serious rally.  What are your thoughts?
