Why trade knock-outs with IG?
Set your knock-out level and trade size to control your risk taken
The knock-out price moves one-for-one with IG’s underlying price1
Your total margin is equal to your total risk multiplied by 1.12
Knock-outs are a limited-risk product 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:
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.
