Wall Street guaranteed stop level changed?


rallyartist

Question

Wall Street instrument has been having min 10 points guaranteed stops for orders. This seems to have changed to 2-3% of underlying price (500-800 points) instead.

I noticed this change halfway through the Friday US trading session. Can I check if anyone knows if this is a permanent or temporary change? Thanks in advance!

@rallyartist- Apologies for the late response. 

Our stop losses will change if market news is coming out or if we believe the market could be volatile. These changes are not permanent, it's just until we believe we're able to lower them again.

What was the cause of the big system lock-ups recently that happened to coincide with big moves in the U.S. markets?

I've spoken to our technical team who mentioned there were some issues last week with MT4 but not our web platform. If you ever have any issues I would advise calling us straight away because we don't want you to miss out. 

 

With regards to the moves on Indices, 'Caseynotes' is always posting useful information in the Indices feed.

    • In this week’s Trade of the Week, IG market analyst Axel Rudolph FSTA looks to go short the DAX with a stop-loss at 12,950 and a downside target at 11,400. He also looks at last week’s trade, which was long the Volatility Index.        
    • Charting the Markets: 26 September FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 hold their ground in early trading. GBP/USD at 37-year lows, EUR/GBP at 2-year highs and EUR/USD at fresh 20-year lows. And gold, Brent crude and lumber head lower as recessionary fears lift the dollar.     This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
