No Trailing Stop

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, fairly new to IG...quick question... I can place a trailing stop on a Deal but note when setting an Order? am I missing something?

I have the same question. 

Why is my Demo account allowing me to do so, but my real trading account does not.

Similar to only having the "Deal" option and not an option to "Order" either.

I have since learnt that share trading accounts does not offer that functionality, only a CFD account. 
There is no clear comparison between the account types offered by IG and what you get with it. 
I think it is grossly misleading & misrepresentation to lure people into the "Demo" account that offers functionalities which you then do not get when you have a normal share trading account. It even alludes to the benefits of these functionality as a must for good trading practice and for safety. It is all good and well to say then to get a CFD account, but by looking at the criteria to open one, is a whole new set of rules. 
I'll keep looking at other products to see how they compare and what you get with it.

Hi there trend follower, option, but I mostly

Interesting you say "I use the 'Trailing Stop' function on IG's UK Spread Betting account".  I was actually talking about the spreadbetting acount. I can see the 'trailing stop' option if I use the "DEAL" button, where the drop down provides for "Normal",  "Guaranteed"  or "Trailing" Stop....  but I mostly use the "ORDER" option and then only get the "Normal" or "Guaranteed" on the drop down ....unless I am missing something??
