Dealing tools

Monitor potential investments, automate your dealing, protect your profits and minimise potential losses

Investment watchlist

Keep an eye on investments you're interested in buying and set limits and alerts for them. To add an investment, go to your watch list, search for the investment and add it to your list.

Limits & alerts

To set up any of the limits and alerts below, simply go to my account and click on the small box to the left of your investment, or set a limit after you click ‘buy’. Please note that any triggers you set up are not guaranteed prices – we will get the next available ‘best price’ for you.

Limit order

Use a ‘buy limit order’ to automatically buy an investment if it falls to a price of your choice. Use a ‘sell limit order’ to automatically sell an investment if it rises to a price of your choice.

Stop loss limit

Minimise potential losses or lock in profits by automatically selling an investment if it FALLS TO A PRICE of your choice.

 

 

Tracking (or trailing) stop loss limit

Minimise potential losses or lock in profits by automatically selling an investment if its price FALLS BY A MARGIN of your choice. If the price rises, your tracking stop loss will follow the price up and will only be triggered if the price then falls by your chosen margin. If the price falls, your tracking stop loss will remain static and only be triggered if the price falls by your chosen margin.

 

 

Safeguard

Prevent stop losses or limit orders from triggering when an investment’s bid/offer spread is wider than 5%. This can happen during periods of volatility, for example at market opening and closing. A safeguard can be used when an investment’s mid price is 20p or more.

Price alert

Receive an email alert (or highlight in your account) if an investment rises or falls to a price of your choice.
