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
