If you want to trade now you can select the ‘Deal’ tab, fill in your size, and select one of the following:

 

  • Current price or better: This default trade option will open your position at the current price or better if the market moves in your favour.
  • Points through current: This gives you more control of your execution by allowing you to trade through the current price, up to certain tolerance as defined in your deal ticket. This is useful in reducing order rejection in a volatile or illiquid market, or if you trade in larger size.
  • Market order:  If you want to increase the likelihood of being filled, irrespective of price, you can select Market Order.

To increase the chance of successful execution, the IG deal ticket will default to accept partial fills. If you use this feature, IG will only partially fill a trade as an alternative to outright rejection, and you will never be partially filled if an entire fill is possible.

 

We also offer a range of stops and limits so you can exit your open position at specific price levels. These include trailing stops which will follow your trade if the market moves in your favour, and guaranteed stops that will always be filled at the exact level you select (even if the market gaps over the level you selected). Regular stops are available too.

 

If you want to trade when the market gets to a certain level, use the order tab:

 

A stop order, once triggered, will be filled at the prevailing market price, however this could be a less favorable level than you selected.

 

A limit order will give you control over your entry point, but your entry level must be placed at a more favorable level than the current market. Once triggered your entry level will always be the price you selected or better.

HI

 

I am dealing on ftse 100 dfb mainly and forex markets. When I click to edit position (classic platform) the box is there but won't let me click guaranteed stop, but it will tick trailing stop. Both guaranteed and trailing work fine on my mobile.

On the new platform under the positions list, I try to click on add stop and I only get normal and trailing stop to choose from. Am I correct in saying I can't add a guaranteed stop on open positions in the new platform?

Hi sorry for the delay in the reply. I have just passed this query over to one of our Trading Services support members and they have confirmed that currently you can only add a guaranteed stop via a mobile device, or over the phone. 

 

We are looking at adding this functionality, however currently this isn't possible. I hope this clarifies things. I have also amended your original subject question slightly which I think maybe useful for any other community members, Hope this is ok.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
