Risk-management tools

The markets aren’t forgiving if you’re unprepared. That’s why you need tools that make managing risk a natural part of your trading plan. With our built-in risk management toolbox, it’s easy to stay in control, whatever the markets have in store.

  • Risk control, full stop
    No matter what you trade, it’s vital to plan your exit strategy from the start. We make it easy to add stop-loss orders right from the trade ticket, so you can limit losses and stick to your trading plan, automatically, every time.
  • Trail your stops
    Want to give your risk management more flexibility, while keeping risk under firm control? Trailing stops move dynamically, following prices in real-time – that means you can let your winners run, while following them with a protective stop ready to lock in profits.
  • Guard your capital with Account Shield
    You’ve built a portfolio you’re proud of. Now, protect it from market volatility with our Account Shield, which automatically closes your open positions at the best available market rates if triggered. Learn how to set up Account Shield with our short tutorial.
