Execution control

Enter and exit trades in a flash with our cutting-edge technology. There are multiple order types available, so you can control exactly when and how your trades are executed. For example, our 1-Click CFD Trading feature allows you to place a trade almost instantly, while for enhanced order management you can set boundaries to control any potential slippage in the market.

Order execution options

Risk management

We've developed an extensive range of risk management features to help you manage trading risk effectively, helping to secure potential profits and minimise losses. If you want 100% certainty that a CFD trade will close at an exact price if it moves against you, we offer guaranteed stop-loss orders (GSLOs) for a small premium. Alternatively our stockbroking platform offers unlimited linked and conditional orders to ensure that you’re better able to manage your exit and entry points.
