Take control of your forex trading strategy with our tailored market orders
When it comes to foreign exchange, understanding the benefits of different market orders is essential to determine which strategy is best suited to your foreign exchange needs. Using a market order, you can inform your currency specialist when you would like to purchase foreign currency. This trading strategy allows you to capture exchange rates around the clock and buy and sell currency at a predetermined target level. Foreign exchange (forex) orders are valuable currency hedging solutions that allow you to target a better exchange rate whilst protecting against future currency fluctuations. If you would prefer to plan ahead and better manage your budget, an expertly guided Halo Financial market order is the currency trading solution for you.
Better risk management of your currency trading strategies
A limit order gives you the control to target a better exchange rate than is available when placing the order. It is an instruction to buy or sell currency at a predetermined “best case” exchange rate, with automatic trade execution if achieved. By exchanging at a better exchange rate, you will receive more currency for your money. This is ideal for targeting a specific exchange rate and waiting for the market to work in your favour, whilst minimising the impact of any market downfalls.
A stop-loss order reduces the risk of currency exposure and helps to protect against exchange rates moving against you by providing a minimum exchange rate you can budget against. Once achieved, your currency trade will be completed automatically and you won’t be required to settle your successful currency pair until your order is fulfilled. If mitigating the risk of foreign exchange exposure is a priority for your trading strategy, a stop-loss order will help you to manage any unexpected currency fluctuations.
Combine a limit and stop-loss order to set both upper and lower exchange rate levels around the current exchange rate. This effectively “automates” your currency exchanges by automatically executing your order if your desired rate reaches the limit specified, or drops to your stop-loss level. This solution protects your hard-earned money from unfavourable exchange rate movements whilst maximising the benefit of any positive exchange rate movements.
