What is a stop distance point?


Recommended Posts

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.

    • It's times like in the attached image, Oct 18-dec 18. The FTSE saw declines over an extended period of time. If your view even over the short term eg days is that the market will recover the falls, in this case that isn't true. Basically I think I need to learn how to short, as long trading isn't always the right thing to do.
    • Hello Everyone, Quite the noobie question, but how exactly can I know how trusted and well intended and ICO is? I've been scouting a lot of them for quite some time and I've seen both sides of the coin. I've seen ICO's with good marketing and youtubers talking about it that just dissapeared after a few months, and I've seen ICO's with not as much publicity breaking the bar (ELROND for example). Any help would be appreciated. I would like it if we posted here our research and opinions so we can further examine ICO's if anyone else is into that stuff
