Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. Before deciding to trade foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. You could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. CFDs are complex instruments. You can lose your money rapidly due to leverage. Please ensure you understand how this product works and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing money.

How do I edit stop-losses and take-profits on an open position?

Navigate to the ‘positions’ tab, or the ‘positions’ window if already open, and hover over the row you are looking to edit. Fill in the stop-loss or take-profit field and hit enter, or click elsewhere on the trading platform. An accepted edit will confirm in green.

All markets have minimum stop distances which are variable based on the currencies involved, perceived volatility, and time of day. This minimum distance is quoted on every trade ticket.
