Trailing Stop Orders
ETX Capital, a leading spread trading and CFD trading firm, has introduced trailing stop orders to its CFD and spread betting accounts.
In a move that's estimated to be widely welcomed by the company's clients, ETX will now let clients place trailing stop orders. This will help clients lock in their potential profits when they are trading erratic markets. It will also help investors manage their CFD and spread betting profits, as well as the many associated risks, more effectively.
Through a trailing stop loss clients can 'trail a stop' behind an open position. The use of a trailing stop loss order keeps a stop loss at a specific percentage/point below or above the market. A trailing stop loss isn't static, it will continuously change based on market fluctuations.
Trailing Stop Orders - Example
If an ETX client were to buy the FTSE 100 index at a 5934-5935 with a trailing stop distance, set by the client, of 25 points then the stop loss order will be placed at 5910. The trailing increment, set by ETX, would be 20 points.
If the FTSE 100 index were to then increase to 5974/5975 the stop loss would also move higher by 40 points to 5950 and it would continue to move higher for every 20 point move upwards.
If the market in question were to slump and it fell back to 5934/5935 then the trailing stop loss would have been activated and the trade would be closed at 5950.
Trailing Stop Orders
According Manoj Ladwa, a senior trader at ETX Capital, the introduction of trailing stops will be highly beneficial for both new and existing spread traders looking to make a profit from unpredictable and volatile markets. Even so, Ladwa was mindful to remind clients that it's also possible to lose more than the initial capital deposited when CFD trading and financial spread betting with a trailing stop loss.
"With our planned expansion into the Italian and French markets and our successful launch in Germany, ETX Capital are making it easier for our UK and Euro-zone clients to profit in different ways from spread trading and CFDs. The new trailing stops can help both limit losses and lock in gains for our account holders".
