I have just made my first trade with my new ISA account. To my surprise it seems that I can't set a stop loss! I am reading on the forum here that it depends on the exchange that the stocks are traded on. I don't get this. I also have an ISA account with X-O which is a very basic trading platform, yet I've never had an issue setting a stop loss whatever the exchange. I thought IG was a market leading platform. How come something this basic has been overlooked??
Can someone tell me how I can see what exchange a stock is being traded on?
I can't see how anyone can recommend this platform without something as basic as the protection of a stop loss.
