Order Execution

MULTIPLE ORDER TYPES

The platform provides you with a range of order types to allow flexible order placement, and the risk management tools are customisable and easy to use. You can set default stop-loss and take-profit orders to manage risk on every trade.

Guaranteed stop-loss orders

For a small premium the GSLOs give you 100% certainty that your stop loss will be executed at the exact price you want, regardless of market volatility or gapping. You will be refunded 100% of the 'Premium' if the order is not triggered.

TOOLS ADVANTAGES

Market orders

Use market orders to open or close trades at the current market price. The automated execution feature means market orders get filled at the next available price.

Limit and stop entry orders

Limit orders and stop-entry orders are used to enter a trade at a specific price above or below the current market price, and within a set time period.

Partially close trades

It's possible to close only a portion of existing trades. For example, if you have four CFD trades of 2 units each on the UK 100, you can choose to close out one part (2 units) leaving the other three trades in place.

Stop-loss orders

Stop-loss orders allow you to specify a price at which a position will be closed out by the ‘Next Generation Platform’, if the market moves against you.

Trailing stop-loss orders

A trailing stop-loss will follow a price as it moves favourably for you, remaining at the distance specified when the order was placed.

Take-profit orders

Take profit orders are used to set a predetermined target level at which you would like ‘The Next Generation Platform’ to close a trade and secure the profit from that trade.

ADVANCED ORDER FEATURES

The ‘Next Generation’ platform includes an array of advanced order features that allow for even greater control, flexibility and customisation when it comes to orders and trade execution.

Trade from charts

Open, close and amend orders directly from charts and view levels against historical price action. Once a position has been opened, just click the triangular trade entry icon on the chart and drag stop-loss and take-profit levels to change them. '1-click trading' allows you to place trades immediately by clicking on any streaming buy or sell price. Your usual default risk management and order settings will automatically be applied.

Use boundary orders in volatile markets

Control slippage in volatile markets by specifying a boundary price range in the order ticket. If the price at execution is outside this range, then the order will be rejected. Available on market and stop order.

Use price ladder for large orders

The ‘Next Generation’ platform provides you with the price ladder displays prices for trades that are larger than what's available at the first bid and offer price. It lets you enter trades which you otherwise wouldn't be able to enter, with just one order, but with a wider spread. The automated trade execution ensures that positions up to our maximum trade size will always be executed.

Go long & short simultaneously

With account netting disabled (via 'Account Settings'), it's possible to place long and short trades on the same product at the same time.

Trade using unrealised profit

If a trade is in profit, you can use this unrealised profit to open new trades, thus taking advantage of other opportunities without having to close profitable trades.

Pre-set order preferences

Set default order preferences for all or specific products. You can turn off pre-order confirmations and set last trade size, stop losses and take profits as default.

Rollover discount on forwards

When you manually roll a forward to the next contract, you enter the new trade at the mid-price and save 50% on the spread cost. You can also set forward settlement behaviour to 'Auto Roll-Over' to have this rule applied to all of your forward positions.

EXECUTION ALERT

Set up an alert system to notify you when important price levels are breached or when your pending orders are triggered. Receive platform pop-ups and have alerts emailed to you or pushed to your mobile device.

Get trade execution alerts, including mobile push notifications, when pending orders (such as stop entry, limit, stop-loss or take-profit orders) are executed in your account.

To complement execution alerts, price alerts are also offered. These enable you to receive notifications when the price of a product you’re interested in reaches a significant level specified by you, such as a major support or resistance level.

ACCOUNT CLOSE-OUT

You can choose the account close-out method used by ’he ‘Next Generation’ platform to automatically close out your trades if your account revaluation amount** falls below your close-out level. Change the close-out method in 'Account Settings' on the ‘Next Generation’ platform.

**Cash + net unrealised profit or loss

Complete
Close-out

This is the default setting and it closes the trades on your account in any order until your account revaluation amount** rises above the close-out level.

Last trade in,
first out

This option will start by closing your most recent trade first, or a portion of it. Then the next most recent trade will be reduced or closed if necessary, and so on.
