Choice of Trigger Methods

Pending Orders, Stop Loss and Take Profits can be triggered by the opposite side, second consecutive price and even second consecutive opposite price to protect against harmful erroneous prices.

Advanced Order Protection

Advanced Take Profit can be used to scale out of a position at multiple levels, Stop Loss can be set to break-even and Server Trailing Stops can be used to follow profitable positions.

Stop Out Type

cTrader offers two stop out types. Smart Stop Out gives the best chance of recovery in the unfortunate event that margin falls below stopout level. The largest margin taking position will be partially closed to maintain the position and the entry point. This algorithm protects margin, positions and balance. Fair Stop Out closes the largest margin taking position entirely as opposed to the most unprofitable position. This method frees as much margin as possible to protect the remaining positions.

Quick Trade

Quick Trade can be used to open, close and modify orders using either one or two clicks from every section of the platform allowing traders to respond quickly to fast moving markets.
