New ways to limit your risk
Already unrivalled in Singapore, we have recently improved our suite of Risk-Management Tools by cutting the cost of Guaranteed Stops and introducing Forex - Limited Risk Options.
Guaranteed Stops & no slippage
Guaranteed Stops provide complete protection from sharp market movements against you.
They ensure your position is closed should the market move through your requested stop level, with no slippage. Available only when you open of a trade, you can subsequently move the level of your Guaranteed Stop while the trade is open, except when the market is closed
We have today lowered our charges for Guaranteed Stops, to the following :
- Forex - From 0.8 pips
- Shares - From 0.3% of the transaction value
- Indices - From 0.1 points
- Commodities - From 0.2 points

We also provide a range of Non-Guaranteed Stops to help you manage your risk, and which are free of charge.
Forex - Limited Risk Options
Only available to our Singapore clients, Forex - Limited Risk Options are a new way of taking a position on forex pairs such as EUR/USD. They have either a predetermined ceiling or floor built in to limit your risk to a value known when opening the position.
The ceiling or floor caps your potential loss but not your potential profit, controlling your risk in a manner similar to using Stop orders.
Unlike traditional Stops, however, a position in a Forex - Limited Risk Option is not closed if the market moves through your floor or ceiling. Instead, it remains open until you close it, or until it expires at 11pm that night, Singapore time.
This means that even if the price moves against you and breaks through your floor or ceiling, your position will stay open and benefit from any subsequent change in the market there might be in your favour, until 11pm that night.
Regardless of price movements, you are free to close your position at any time up until one minute prior to expiry.
Peace of mind
Two of many ways we help you to manage your risk, Guaranteed Stops and Forex - Limited Risk Options protect you from unexpected losses, and provide the peace of mind of knowing your risk exposure upfront.
