Why can't I put a trailing stop?

Recommended Posts

I'm a new trader too searching about trailing. I came across the same problem. I cannot place an ORDER with a trailing stop. I checked open and closed markets, same restriction. IG only allows a normal or guaranteed stop on an ORDER. However, the option is there for a DEAL. So if you go with a DEAL and accept the market price, you can use a trailing stop, but if you want to set your price first with an ORDER, you can't - doesn't make sense.

Also, you can not combine a guaranteed and trailing stop. That would be great if you could - the features exist, but not together 😞

Ideally I want to combine a guaranteed and trailing stop on an ORDER. That way, I get all benefits of setting a price I think is value, more profits if the market goes my way and certain risk if it doesn't.

    • 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.
