How do I edit the Stop Loss of my open trade?

To edit the Stop Loss at any time while the trade is open:

  1. Click on the relevant trade in your Portfolio to open the Edit Trade window. 
  2. Click on ‘Stop Loss’. If there is currently no Stop Loss and you wish to add one, click ‘Set SL’.
  3. Choose between ‘Amount’ or ‘Rate’.
  4. Type an amount or rate, or use the + and - buttons. 
  5. Click ‘Update’ to save the change.

It is possible to extend your Stop Loss beyond the maximum Stop Loss allowed when opening a trade. In this case, we debit funds from your available balance as part of our Maintenance Margin feature, which acts as an additional safety net for your trade.
