CFDs are leveraged products. CFD trading may not be suitable for everyone and can result in losses that exceed your deposits, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.

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
