How can i change the stop loss after the market is closed?

The other evening i wanted to change the existing stop loss value on Barratt's in my ISA account. However i got the error message saying "the exchange is currently unavailable".

Unfortunately you are unable to change an order when the market is closed, for the simple fact that the underlying exchange is closed and isn't accepting orders (for example the LSE or NYSE). In some instances you can call us during the auction period to amend orders, however this will depend on the exchange itself. Let me know what specifically you are trading and I'll be able to give further information.

hi @yogitree - in this instance the only time you're going to be able to cancel your order is ten minutes before the market opens. In other words from 7.50am until 8am (when the market opens) . You can also do this in the post market up to 5pm.

You can of course do it in the main session, however any time outside of this or the times quoted above wouldn't be possible.

    • @Courage Thanks for that input, I am following this one. Being a newbie what news days and countries are best to look out for and what days are the big mover news days. Thanks
    • Spot on. The FX market is “influenced by policy makers through the purchase or sales of bonds  “ their mandate is to keep the confidence in their respective economies as high as possible.   That confidence is what the Fiat monetary system is based on, the moment that goes the system evaporates. If you recall a few years ago during Theresa Mays government, the key phrase was strong and stable? . That's their mandate. They can't let a currency move too far towards one extreme or the other.     So if you wana make money on fx you need to extend your time horizon or take the other position when things go too far into one extreme. I am only 32 but remember I  the dollar decline and the dollar inflation story that has been around for along time now. It's the same old story once you realise it's the new cycle, you learn to side step it and focus on what's important and that's the economy. Economic strength expresses itself in currency strength. Focus on that and you will get the big moces right.
