CFDs are a leveraged product and can result in losses that exceed deposits. Trading CFDs may not be suitable for everyone, so please ensure you fully understand the risks and take care to manage your exposure.

How do I apply a stop?

Manage your risk effectively by adding a stop to your position.

  • Add a stop in the deal ticket
  • Select a stop type, from a choice of normal, guaranteed or trailing
  • Once you’ve chosen how you want to measure your stop, enter a stop distance
  • Drag the ‘stop/limit’ bar on a chart to edit your stop, or amend one in the ‘positions’ panel
