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 trade will close at an exact price if it moves against you, we offer guaranteed stop-loss orders (GSLOs) for a small premium.
