Trailing Stop Loss


Kennzo

Question

Spread Bet Account: FX Trading:

I notice that if I wish to place a 'DEAL' on an FX trade it allows me to also apply a trailing stop loss.
However this function seems to be removed on an 'ORDER' trade.

Can anyone explain why?

Thank you

Ken

Hi, I can't remember the why but once the trade is activated you can immediately go to the 'positions' tab and open a trailing stop on the trade from there.

    • Hi @greenscorpio1000 Thanks for reaching out.  You can use the platform to check how much the daily charge would be. You can add the Swap bid (Rate used to calculate your overnight funding) on the platform by searching Cocoa- London >> Right click on it and add to Watchlist >> Add the Watchlist to your Workspace.  Once this is done, click on the three lines next to 'Market' on the top left and add Swap bid/Swap offer to view the expected daily rate. You simply take this rate and multiply it by your size to estimate the daily interest payment on your account.  Overnight Funding = Bet Size x Rate  Negative number is a charge Positive Number is a credit Using an example with the figures shown in the above screenshot, if you are short London Cocoa with  bet size GBP2, your overnight funding will be GBP2 x -2.36 = -GBP 4.72 charge We have an example on How we calculate Overnight Funding for Commodities on our website. This will give you a clear indication if this will be a credit or a debit in your account.  All the best, OfentseIG    
    • We are moving into ‘nonfarm payrolls Friday’ and the potential for volatility is significant after a broad mix of preceding employment statistics. While the employment report can certainly spur the markets like the S&P 500 and Dollar to action, traders should keep tabs on growing warnings from the IMF and Fed officials.   Full article on DailyFX
