Slippage is a possibility with spread bets, CFDs and shares trading. Our CFDs and spread betting accounts offer the ability to add guaranteed stops to a position, in order remove the risk of slippage from trades entirely. As share dealing with IG involves taking ownership of the shares themselves, guaranteed stops are not available.
To activate a guaranteed stop, tick the ‘guaranteed stop’ box on the deal ticket. The deposit amount will change, and it includes the premium we'll charge if your stop is triggered.*
