EURUSD guaranteed stop


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, been able to put some guaranteed stops on the EURUSD past few days but realized not able to at the usual levels yesterday, is this due to the massive volatility? 
 

Usually the increase in margin requirements are triggered near to major news events as I understand.

yes that's correct, the minimum stop and guaranteed stop positions are directly influenced by current market volatility.

Stop positions may also influence the margin requirement needed to place the trade and spreads may also be influenced by current market volatility.

Only if you have a limited risk account where all stops are guaranteed stops, limited risk accounts are not available in all countries.

sorry i have to disagree here, i think limited risk account guarantees you dont lose more than what your account has, where as guaranteed stop guarantees you dont lose more than the stop loss amount.

to answer the first question before, iv enquired with IG, guaranteed stops are not available on MT4

yes, a limited risk account does not allow the account to go negative and all trade entries are automatically given a guaranteed stop so if using mt4 on a limited risk account the stop will automatically be a guaranteed stop but a guaranteed stop is not available on a normal account with mt4.

Limited risk accounts were abandoned in the UK and the EU after the EU regulator gave all retail accounts negative protection in 2018.

    • If we could get some news about negotations and a possible ceasefire in Ukraine then i would say this is the bottom https://edition.cnn.com/markets/fear-and-greed "That indicator previously fell to 0 in August 2002, July 2008, September 2011, September 2015, January 2016 and March 2020, observed Hartnett. When it has previously zeroed out, except in the case of a double-dip recession such as 2002 or in the event of systemic events, as in 2008 and 2011, three-month returns have been strong, as the table below shows." https://www.marketwatch.com/story/based-on-history-the-next-bull-market-is-just-months-away-and-could-take-the-s-p-500-to-6000-says-bofa-11655475414
    • The CME Bitcoin futures BTC main contract was at $19,370 late Friday (Chinese time) in New York, up 3.25% from Thursday's New York session, and trading in the $18,630-20,790 range during the session, down 8.87% for the week. the CME Ethereum futures DCR main contract was at $1065.50, up 5.08% from Thursday, and trading in the 1009.50-$1118.00 range, down 13.02% for the week.Maybe there is still a possibility of decline.
