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.
