LONDON, June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
ETX Capital, a leading UK and international spread betting and CFD firm, has introduced trailing stop orders to its spread betting and CFD accounts.
In a move that is anticipated to be widely welcomed by the firm's customers, ETX Capital will now allow clients the ability to place trailing stop orders in order to lock in their potential profits from volatile markets and manage their spread betting and CFD gains, and the many associated risks, more effectively.
Through the use of a trailing stop loss order clients will be able to trail a stop behind a position. The use of a trailing stop order maintains a stop loss order at a specific percentage point below or above the market price. With a trailing stop loss order the stop does not remain static and will continuously change based on fluctuations in prices, yet always maintain the same percentage below or above the market price.
For example, if a client were to buy the UK 100 at a price of 5944/5945 with a trailing stop distance set by the client of 25 points and a trailing increment of 20 points, set by ETX Capital, then the stop loss order will be placed at 5920. If the market were to then rise to 5985 -5986 the stop would also move up by 40 points to 5960 and would continue to do so for every 20 point move upwards in the market.
If, however, the market were to drastically fall and the price drastically dropped back down to 5944/5945 then the trailing stop would have been activated and the position would be closed at 5960.
According to ETX Capital senior trader Manoj Ladwa, the introduction of trailing stop loss orders will be highly beneficial with both new and existing traders being able to profit from volatile markets. Ladwa was, however, mindful to remind customers that it is also possible to lose more than the initial amount deposited when spread betting and CFD trading with a trailing stop loss order.
"With our successful launch in Germany and planned expansion into the French and Italian markets, ETX Capital are making it easier for our UK and European clients to profit in different ways from CFD trading and spread betting. The introduction of trailing stop loss orders can help both limit losses and aid in obtaining gains for our clients".
