Our guaranteed stops offer the best possible protection, should the market move sharply against you.
Guaranteed stops work in the same way as non-guaranteed stops; however, guaranteed stops put an absolute limit on your liability in the event of a violent market movement, without restricting your profit potential.
When you place a guaranteed stop you set a maximum/minimum exit price for your trade. Your position will be closed at exactly your selected level should the market move against you, even if there is a very sharp overnight move. We make a small one-off extra charge for this protection.
This protection is not available on all shares, and the size of the position on which we may be able to offer this facility may be limited. We will be happy to advise you of the facilities available for any particular share.
The margin requirement for a trade with a guaranteed stop is equal to the amount which would be lost if your guaranteed stop were triggered. You will also be required to cover any interest or dividend adjustments.
See how guaranteed stops work in practise on our examples page.
CFDs are leveraged products. CFD trading may not be suitable for everyone and can result in losses that exceed your initial deposit, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.
