Guranteed Stop vs Normal Stop

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I a newbie for this trading. After go through couples of trading materials.

I found Guranteed stop is the ONLY option in Live account but Normal Stop at Demo Account.

So will we possible have normal stop in our live account since we trade in smaller volume trade instead.

As the guranteed stop premium is such a waste by paying extra when it hit the stop limit.

And it din't match with my risk reward ratio as rational commonly set at 1:2 ?

By applied guranteed stop it would become 2:1 reversely...

As I believe, there no perfect trade can win every single trade in the world.

@LittleAngel, a guaranteed stop loss order guarantees to close out your trade at the price level specified, irrespective of whether the market gaps. Guaranteed stops ensure that no matter how volatile the markets, your risk will never exceed the level you have chosen.

I know that IG have guaranteed stops which cost you an extra few ticks/pips in the spread. I can understand this in commodities or very volatile markets. I am not so sure on large caps (FTSE 100) or more less volatile markets.

    • 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. 😂
