Stop loss in Share trading..


Guest SamCPT

Question

Guest SamCPT

Hey Guys, I have already reached out to the help chat but thought I would check with the community before I move on to another broker.. I am in Australia and have an interest in swing trading US equities. I set orders during the US close but would like to be able to set stop losses. Trading in CFD account, the overnight fees add up and don't make sense for 2-3 week swing trades. Does anyone have any suggestions on managing risk in the share trading account? Thanks in advance!

Hi, IG will be releasing a new shares trading platform (though we've been waiting a long time for it) incorporating additional features such as stop loss orders. A stop loss order though is just a reverse order for the same amount at the desired price level, see this thread for setting up a stop loss order and take profit orders on the shares trading platform.

    • Because of this, it's wise for traders to thoroughly investigate exchanges before choosing one. I exclusively deal with cryptocurrency exchanges that have declared proof of reserve in the wake of the unfortunate events that saw some go bankrupt and others hack. Because of what I've heard traders say about Bitget and the fact that it met my requirements, I had to start using it right away. Therefore, I'd advise DYOR to choose whatever best meets your needs.
    • The Santa Rally – Christmas Growth in the Stock Market. You may well of heard of the ‘Santa Rally’. It’s a commonly discussed stock market theory. It is the basic concept that the stock markets, particularly the major indices, show positive returns on the run up to Christmas and the New year. Myth or legend? We look at the stats.  As you can see from the below table the FTSE100 rose in price in 12 of the 15 years. That’s 80% of the time. The average difference was 1.95% https://moneysandi.com/the-santa-rally-christmas-growth-in-the-stock-market/ Anyone had any experience of trading this?  #trading #money #trader #investing #investment #crypto #stockmarket #stocks #business #invest #entrepreneur #finance #investor #daytrader #daytrading #trade  #wallstreet #wealth #santarally #finance
