Platform set-up

On the desktop platform, how can I tell which technical indicator does what?

Click on 'Technicals' located at the foot of the chart for the product you wish to trade and then select the technical for which you'd like to get more information. This will open a pop up with an ‘i’ icon on the top left of the pop-up box. Click on the 'i' to see a detailed explanation of how the technical indicator works and how to interpret it.

How can I partially close trades on the mobile app?

To partially close trades on the mobile app, select 'Positions' at the bottom left of the screen and then click on the red cross. You can then amend the amount/stake for the trade you wish to close.  Once you've confirmed this, your trade will be partially closed by the amount you entered. You will be able to see the remaining part of the trade in the positions window.

How can I apply a guaranteed stop-loss order to my trade?

Within the deal ticket, select 'Stop Loss' and then click on the arrow below 'Regular' on the right-hand side of the deal ticket. Then select 'GSLO' (guaranteed stop-loss order). Proceed to enter your stop loss amount as you would with a regular stop. Please note that there is a minimum distance at which GSLOs will be placed and a premium attached. This information can be found within the product overview for the relevant product.
