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.

    • Does anyone else know any other SB providers that you can use to trade through TV?  I've only so far seen CFD providers which doesn't work for me due to tax reasons (mainly the hassle of having to account for it as well as the obvious cost).
    • Is there any update on when/if there will be any integration with Tradingview???
    • The anonymity of cryptocurrency transactions can vary depending on the specific cryptocurrency you use and the methods you use. While some cryptocurrencies provide a degree of privacy and anonymity, it is important to note that achieving complete anonymity can be difficult. Most cryptocurrencies operate on a pseudonymous basis. Transactions are recorded in a public ledger, called a blockchain, using cryptographic addresses instead of personal information. However, these addresses are usually not directly linked to a real identity, unless someone voluntarily discloses this information. Some cryptocurrencies, such as Monero (XMR) and Zcash (ZEC), are specifically designed to increase privacy and anonymity. I read on https://deeplab.com/darkweb/anonymous-sudan-launches-cyberattacks-on-middle-eastern-news-outlets-expands-target-list-with-four-additional-names that some people use this anonymity as a cyber attack.
