Guaranteed stop distances


scuttsy

Question

Hi.

I was trading the S&P500 futures on Friday. About 2 hours after open, I went long and was able to set a guaranteed stop 20 pips below entry.

Towards the end of the day, I went to put another long trade on with a guaranteed stop, but it had to be at least 55 pips away.

My Question is, when does this change, the distance that a guaranteed stop has to be.

Thanks

Hi @scuttsy. The min distances for all stops (guaranteed or normal) change throughout the day and is dependent on market volatility at the time.
