Apple inc share buy price is currently $194.1400.

The deal ticket iPhone screen has a stop distance +- spinner. If I enter “2” in there does it represent $2 (e.g. stop loss at $192.1400) or something else?

Hi @Mark8787, the stop distance should be in points which in IG speak is the same as a pip (FX) or a tick (Indices).

See this info page on the deal/order ticket.

Thanks. So in that example I would set the stop distance to 20,000 to be a $2 distance, or at $192.1400, correct?

@Mark8787,  yes but no 🙂, you don't use the last 2 zeros, not sure which platform you are on but if it's the spread bet and the price is 194.1400 and you want a price stop 2.0000 away at 192.1400 then you need to put 200 points in the stop loss box,  see pic below.

I'm using the iPad app. So I guess according to what you say it means cents in the case of Apple stock. E.g. 200 cents = $2?

    • Cocoa Elliott wave analysis - bullish trend persists. Function - Trend Mode - Impulsive Structure - Impulse Wave Position - Red sub-wave (iv) of blue wave iii Direction - Red sub-wave (v) of blue wave iii On the daily time frame, our Elliott Wave analysis reveals a compelling structure in the ongoing impulse wave, originating from the pivotal breakout at 2198 after the breakout of a 23-week triangle range. This current impulse, labeled in black, is anticipated to culminate in the expansive red wave (C) within the framework of the largest blue wave Y that this timeframe could capture. Consequently, we anticipate a continuation of the upward trajectory, with a projected rally toward the 7000 level. Significantly, our observation indicates that the present impulse wave is in its final phase, denoted as black wave 5. Zooming in on the 4-hour time frame, we identify the internal sub-waves composing wave 5, specifically focusing on the progression within the blue sub-wave iii of 5. Our analysis suggests that we are currently navigating through the internal waves of the blue wave iii. Notably, the conclusion of red sub-wave iv within blue iii materialized around the 5336 mark, poised to surpass the preceding peak of red sub-wave (iii) situated at 5800. This impending breakout calls for the emergence of a fresh bullish momentum, steering the price action towards the 6500 threshold to complete the blue wave iii, with prospects of extending further upwards to complete black wave 5. In summary, our analysis suggests that the current upward movement is still intact, and we're anticipating a breakout on the 4-hour chart that could lead to more gains ahead for Cocoa buyers.

    • That could be the reason behind the potential price of PANDORA. Would be on the look for similar projects to add to my pf.
    • I closed some DFB spreadbet positions for profit.   Then tried to open new ones and it says they won’t allow new positions?? Only closing old ones
