Here are some examples of how we can help a client maximize returns and minimize losses through our;

Advanced Order Types as Platform Provided:

  • Stop-Limit
  • Trailing Stop
  • If Done
  • OCO Order
  • Contingency

Stop-Limit

Definition: An order combining the features of stop order and limit order. Once the stop price is reached, the stop-limit order becomes a limit order to trade at the pre-determined limit price or better. However, there is no guarantee that the order will be filled in the event the price gaps through the limit price, the order will not be filled.

Usage: To enter a new position or exit an outstanding one when the price surpasses a particular point. Can also be used to take profit or cut down on losses upon reaching the stop price.

Trailing Stop

Definition: An order with a stop price that is set at a percentage below or above the current trading price. Usage: This order is commonly used as an automatic measure to protect gains and reduce losses on outstanding positions.

To Sell Off Long positions

The trailing stop is set at a certain % below current market price. When the price moves up, the trailing stop will move up correspondingly as well. If the price comes down, the trailing step will remain at previously indicated stop price. Once the current price is the same as the indicated stop price, the indicated limit price will be sent out to the market.

To Buy Back Short positions

The trailing stop is set at a certain % above current market price. When the price moves down, the trailing stop will move down correspondingly as well. If the price comes up, the trailing stop will remain at previous indicated stop price. Once the current price is the same as the indicated stop price, the indicated limit price will be sent out to the market.

Contingency

Definition: An order that is executed only when certain conditions of the security, or another security, have been fulfilled.

Usage: To enter a new position or exit an existing position when the stipulated security reaches the targeted price range.

OCO (One Cancels Other)

Definition: An order stipulating that if one part of the order is executed, the other is automatically cancelled.

Usage: To set a limit order to take profit and a stop limit order to cut loss
