Keep your finger on the pulse with our trading to-do list, including creating a watchlist and managing your risk.
Use the search and filter functions in the product library to find the instruments you want to trade.
The diagram may help you understand some of the annotations below.
Tip: you can also close a position by placing an opposite trade, unless you have disabled 'Account Netting', but you may find the way described above easier.
Create watchlists containing your favourite products for easy access when you need them.
Create a new watchlist using the menu, then add products using their dropdown menus, or simply drag and drop a product into the watchlist module.
Tip: watchlists are a great way to keep track of price movements on the instruments you're monitoring, as well as giving you easy access to order tickets and charts.
Stop-loss orders allow you to specify a price at which a position will be closed out by the platform if the market moves against you.
Tip: stop-loss orders are usually used to close out existing positions. They help to reduce your risk and protect your capital. You can also use stop orders to open a new position. Alternatively, for a small premium, our guaranteed stop-loss orders give you 100% certainty that your stop loss will be executed at the exact price you want, regardless of market volatility or gapping.
