Stop Loss and Sell limits combined


Kennzo

Question

Something of a newbie question:

So I own a stock purchased on the IG platform on NYSE market.

I set a stop loss to protect my position, but why am I not able to then set a sell limit - stock reaches a certain level and sell?

First I need to remove my stop loss and the protection this offers to have a sell limit in place, can I not have both, or is there some other function I should be using to achieve this?

Thank you

I think I have a similar problem, having already set a stop loss and now trying to set a sell limit. Error prompt was "You are trying to sell more than you currently own". I tried to set the sell value below my total account value but that was not the bug.
