Equity Position - Trailing Stop Loss


Recommended Posts

Same issue. How to place a trailing stop. Instructional video on your website shows how to do whilst setting up the trade and also after a trade has been placed. I am trying to do after the trade has been made and  the instruction is to click on the settings tab and go to Stops and Limits, however within settings there is no tab that shows Stops and losses!

 

thanks

Hi everyone

Trailing stops are not available on the Share dealing platform (yet).  They are available on CFD and Spread bet platforms. 

There is information on our Help & Support pages about trailing stops for CFD and Spread bet here: 
https://www.ig.com/uk/help-and-support/spread-betting-and-cfds/orders--stops-and-limits/how-do-i-add-a-trailing-stop-to-an-open-position 

On the deal ticket, you select the stop type next to the Stop input field. 

And in your positions panel, you can add a stop by clicking on the Stop field, and using the arrow to the left of the input field to select 'trailing stop'.

    • In this week’s Trade of the Week, IG market analyst Axel Rudolph FSTA looks to go short the DAX with a stop-loss at 12,950 and a downside target at 11,400. He also looks at last week’s trade, which was long the Volatility Index.        
    • Charting the Markets: 26 September FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 hold their ground in early trading. GBP/USD at 37-year lows, EUR/GBP at 2-year highs and EUR/USD at fresh 20-year lows. And gold, Brent crude and lumber head lower as recessionary fears lift the dollar.     This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
