Why are guaranteed stops important?

Guaranteed stops allow you to put an absolute limit on potential losses.

Even if the market gaps suddenly, your position will be closed out at exactly the price you specified, with no risk of slippage. You can only add a guaranteed stop when you place a new trade and cannot attach one to an existing position.

Please note that guaranteed stops are an optional feature and need to be selected. You can read more about our sophisticated risk management tools  here. Guaranteed stops are not available on all CFDs and the size of the positions on which we are able to offer this facility may be limited.

If you have any questions about our range of risk management tools, please don’t hesitate to contact our helpdesk.
