A market order is an instruction to buy or sell a CFD, in a specified size, at the best available market price for that size. You need to remember that a market order can be executed at a price worse than quoted at the time you place it. A market order immediately becomes an open position that can be watched in the ‘Portfolio’ tab in the app. Market orders can be placed only during the trading hours of the underlying asset. A market order can have Take Profit/Stop Loss Orders attached.
If you have enough money on your account, you can keep your positions open for as long as you want. Please, note that if your position remains open at the end of the day, an overnight fee is charged.
When your equity drops below 80% of the required margin, we’ll send you an email or push message notification, if you have this feature enabled.
When your equity drops below 50% of the required margin, your positions will start to close automatically.
A pending order is an instruction to open or close a position if the price reaches, or crosses the level that you have specified earlier. So, to become an open position, a pending order should be triggered first. That comes in especially handy when you don’t have time to watch the market every second. Just decide on a price you can go for, and the system will do the rest.
Capital.com offers one type of pending order – Limit Order.
A Limit Order is an instruction to buy a CFD at no more than a specific price, or to sell it at no less than a specific price. This gives you control over the price at which the Limit Order is executed, however, it is possible that this Limit Order may never be executed (or filled). Pending limit orders can be found in the ‘Portfolio’ tab in the app.
A take profit order automatically closes an open position when the price level reaches the specified threshold. Take profit orders are used to lock in profits when you are unavailable, to monitor your open positions.
For example, if you are long Company XYZ at 109.58 and you want to take your profit when the price reaches 110.00, you can set this price level as your take profit threshold. If the bid price touches 110.00, the open position is closed by the system and your profit is secured.
A stop loss order is a defensive mechanism you can use to help protect against further losses, including avoiding margin closeouts. A stop loss automatically closes an open position when the price moves against you and reaches the level you specify.
For example, if you are long Company XYZ at 109.58, you could set a stop loss at 107.00 – then, if the ask price falls to this level, the trade is automatically closed, thereby capping your losses.
There was no desired price on the market to trigger your pending order execution.
Yes. You can determine both a profit you want to reach and a loss you can afford. Your position will be closed out if one of these parameters is reached.
Your profit is converted into the account currency.
