Using underlying instrument to trigger trade


Guest HSITrader

Question

Guest HSITrader

I am an index trader and use various tools to trade the index like futures, options and recently CFDs.

CFD's as with all derivatives, attempt to mirror the underlying index, but in no way perfect.  There is always a tendency for increased volatility in the derivative when there are sharp spikes in the underlying index.

My trades are triggered based on levels on the underlying index, there are have been situations where trades are triggered when limits on the CFD are reached even when they have not in the underlying index. 

Is there a platform in IG where I can set my trading levels on the underlying index to trigger a market trade on the underlying CFD? 

For example, setting a take profit trigger on a long HS50 trade. Once the level is reached on the Hang Seng Index, then it triggers a sell at market for the HS50 instrument. 

I've looked at L2 Dealer but it seems like its more for stock and forex. 

Thanks.

    • Tesla reported earnings of $1.19 per share after the US market close yesterday - four cents higher than analyst expectations. While revenue was at a record high it came in just short of the bullish expectations at $24.32 billion.  Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Thursday 26 January 2023 Tesla shares up on earnings Tesla shares rose 8% yesterday in extended trade on the IG platform, up a further notch higher by a margin of 5% on from what we saw during full trading yesterday. And this is as a result of earnings out late last night. Let's take a look at the figures. The electric carmaker reported earnings of $1.19 per share after the US markets closed. That's $0.04 higher than analysts expected. Revenue was just short of expectations at $24.32 billion. These are record numbers, according to the company. In a call to investors, CEO Elon Musk said he expected a pretty difficult recession this year for the US economy. But demand for Tesla vehicles, he says, will be good, despite a probable contraction in the automotive market as a whole, adding that absent external disruptions, 2023 deliveries could hit two million vehicles. Share price chart Overall, let's take a look at the share price chart. This stock is now up 51% from the lows that we had back in January and I'm talking January this year. So it's just shy of three weeks. That is a whopping increase. But you've got to bear in mind, the stock has fallen substantially from the record highs we saw back on the 4th of November 2021. We've lost 75.6% of overall value in Tesla. So this uptick here when you're looking at this sort of improvement from those lows, it is an incredible move in terms of percentages, but it's risen from $103 up to $152. So that's what we're opening this morning at 9:00 UK time, extended trade after that big gain yesterday on those numbers coming through from Tesla.
