Why trade Knock-Outs with IG?

Increased flexibility

Set your knock-out level and trade size to determine your margin

Simple pricing

The knock-out price moves one-for-one with IG’s underlying price1

Limited risk

Your total margin is equal to your total risk

Knock-Outs explained

Knock-outs are a limited-risk CFD trade with an expiry. They move one-for-one with the underlying IG price1, and close automatically if your chosen knock-out level is hit. By choosing your knock-out level and your trade size, you can manage your maximum risk for each trade.

You can trade knock-outs whether you think the market will rise or fall – simply buy a bull knock-out if you think the market will rise, and a bear knock-out if you think the market will fall.

How do I trade Knock-Outs with IG?

To start trading Knock-Out provider IG, you’ll need to:

Create an IG account

Create an IG account. If you already have an account with us, you’ll find them in our CFD trading platform and mobile apps.

Choose a bull or bear Knock-Out

This is dependent on whether you think the market will rise or fall.

Pick your Knock-Out level

This will be below IG's underlying price for a bull Knock-Out, and above our underlying price for a bear Knock-Out.

Open your position

You’ll know your maximum outlay from the outset. You can choose to close your position at any time – unless it reaches the knock-out level.

How much do Knock-Outs cost?

The opening price of a Knock-Out is the difference between IG’s underlying price at which you open your position and the knock-out level you select. A small Knock-Out premium is included in our spread, which means you’ll receive it back if you close the trade without being knocked out.
