Contingent Orders
Contingent Orders (COs) are for sophisticated traders who wish to set up a trade to enter or exist a
position only if a certain price level has been reached. All COs are Good Till Cancel (GTC) and will
remain active until the order is triggered or if cancelled by the trader.
If a CO has been triggered, the order will be sent into the market. If the order is not done by the
end of the day, it will be purged from the system (Triggered Orders are GOOD FOR DAY).
All COs are not guaranteed. If there is a gap down / up in the share price, your order may not
There are many kinds of COs – FIXED CO which is a straightforward order to either enter or exit a
position (Take Profit or Stop Loss), OCO (One cancels other) where the Take Profit and Stop Loss are
linked and one will cancel the other if either is reached, IF DONE where you can set up to enter a
position and subsequently set up the Take Profit and/or Stop Loss levels for this position.
Please call the CFD Trading Desk at 6536 2000 if you would like guidance on how to place a CO.
Opening the position
You decide Capitaland is undervalued. It is currently trading at $2.52. You only want to buy 10,000
share CFDs if it reaches $2.50 and below, and if this trade is done, to set up a Take Profit or Stop
Loss level.
Setting up an IF DONE order:
Create a Buy Order:
a) Buy 10,000 Capitaland at $2.50. Your order will be in the queue.
Go a step further and select the IF DONE function. This will allow you to set up a Take Profit
and Stop Loss trade as well. This is a OCO (one cancels other), meaning if the Take Profit
level is reached, the Stop Loss trade is auto cancelled, vice versa.
You will be prompted to enter the Stop Loss and Take Profit levels:
b) Stop loss - If Capitaland reaches a last done price LESS THAN OR EQUAL to $2.40 (this is the
trigger price), SELL 10,000 at limit $2.39 (this is your order price. The system will sell for
you at the best price of $2.40, and until your limit of $2.39 is reached. Of course, you can
specify your limit price as $2.40 too.)
Take profit - If Capitaland reaches a last done price GREATER THAN OR EQUAL to $2.60, sell
