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.

Why do I need a guaranteed stop on every position?

You may be on a limited-risk account.

When you opened your account with IG, you answered a number of questions about your trading experience and personal financial circumstances.

Based on your answers to these questions, we may have placed you on a limited-risk account. This account type helps to protect you from taking on too much risk, by requiring that a guaranteed stop be added to each position before it can open.
