Creating Stops and Limits

See how to set stop and limit orders to your open positions to help better manage your risk.

Stop and limit orders can be added to trades that are currently open. Tap the Summary tab to view your open trades, select the instrument to which you want to add a stop or limit order, and then tap Net Stop or Net Limit. These orders apply to your net position in the given currency pair. As such, when the stop or limit price is reached, the entire exposure of the instrument will be closed. You can set a stop or limit by price or by pips. Enter the details of the order and then tap here.
