Trailing and normal stop losses - Share Dealing account


Recommended Posts


I am new to IG and opened a demo account to get a feel of their platform, charting and tech tools. So far so good, however I could open a Demo account only on CFD's and Spreadbetting. I am not really interested in either of these products, rather more focused on the Share dealing account.

Can anyone tell me who already has a live Share dealing account if IG offers a normal or trailing stop loss in this account?

Are the charting and tech tools the same on the Share dealing account as the one stated on the Demo account?

Much appreciated your response.

Many thanks,

I answered myself the first question by looking the various information on IG website. So they do not have stop losses at all on Share dealing account!!! Why? That is just madness. I thought stop losses were a basic feature nowadays across many stockbrokers platforms, indeed the best one offer trailing stop losses let alone basic one.

A question I guess more for IG management, is there any intention to introduce them across Share dealing, ISA and SIPP accounts?

Hi DenisP I had the same question myself, that's crazy if they don't offer stops on their standard share dealing accounts.  I'm looking to move my SIPP across and wanted to know whether they offer a trailing stop before I do....

    • USDJPY has been regaining ground this week, but inflation differentials and a three-month trend signal the potential for another turn lower Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 27 January 2023  USDJPY set for third monthly decline The USDJPY pair has been on the slide since its October high, with the historical 147.63 resistance level ultimately marking the end of the dramatic 21-month rally that saw the pair gain almost 50%. Much of that came through a period that saw US inflation soar as Japanese prices remain subdued. That disparity remains, but the direction of travel has certainly shifted as US CPI declines and Japanese price growth gradually ticks up. The overnight 4.3% figure for Tokyo core CPI represents a four-decade high, with the nationwide figures likely to follow on. The chart below highlights how USDJPY has been heavily correlated with the now tightening gap between US and Japanese inflation. However, it is more evident when shifting that inflation differential forward by seven-months. That close correlation highlights the potential for further downside as long as prices continue to trend in a similar manner. Source: ProRealTime Looking at the daily chart, the recent rebound has taken price up towards the top-end of a descending channel and Fibonacci resistance. This highlights the bearish pattern that has been playing out, with lower highs and lower lows in place in recent months. Unless we see price rise through trendline and 134.77 resistance, another turn lower looks likely for this pair. Source: ProRealTime
    • @MongiIG Hi - You recently covered Long NICKEL Trading the Trend and A. Rudolf did this morning but I see it is Closing only. Please clarify, Thanks D600
    • At the expire date IG sell/buy price is 93.8/94.95 and Bloomberg price is 92.12 Assume I bought at 100.0 If I close the trade myself I lose (100-93.8) = 6.2 If the trade expires I lose (94.95-93.8) + (100-92.12) = 1.15 + 7.8 = 9.03 Is that right?
