IG, the global brokerage offering CFD’s, Spreadbetting and Share Trading products, has introduced a guaranteed stops feature to its platform. Investors will now be able to benefit from this service free of charge, unless their stop is hit.

Attaching this unique guaranteed stop to each trade will put an absolute cap on your potential loss. This service will be available for a small premium that’s only payable if your stop is triggered.

This means that even if the market gaps suddenly, your position will always be closed out at exactly the price you specified. That means you can now benefit from watertight protection against market slippage, and there’s potentially no cost for this powerful safeguard.

Should your stop be hit, IG’s guaranteed stop premiums offer extremely competitive value for most major indices and FX pairs.

You can add guaranteed stops when you place new trades, but you can’t currently attach them once a trade is in progress or remove them from existing positions. However, this functionality will be coming soon.
