Safe trading in volatile conditions

The eurozone is at a turning point, with the Greek elections set to determine the country’s response to the bailout and membership of the single currency. Given the potential knock-on effect on other debt-ridden member states, this historic moment may trigger extreme reactions in the financial markets.
Fast-moving markets can present exciting opportunities for short-term gains, but you should also take care to limit your potential downside. With InterTrader.com every position you open automatically has a stop-loss order attached, and you can also attach a Guaranteed Stop (for a small premium) to provide absolute protection against sudden market shifts or gaps.
You might also consider adding funds to your account to prevent forced closure of your running positions in volatile conditions. Or you could limit your overall exposure to market moves by closing some of your positions ahead of trigger events such as the Greek election results.
The InterTrader.com Strategy Centre, plus our news tools accessible on the online trading platform, will keep you on top of all the breaking events affecting global markets. Combined with a robust risk protection strategy, you can face the challenge of market volatility with confidence.
