Responsible Risk Management

At InterTrader we want to make sure that all our clients are protected against unmanageable losses. Spread betting and CFD trading are a high-risk activities and markets can move suddenly, especially when unexpected news breaks. For this reason, we recommend you attach a stop-loss order to every position opened with InterTrader, to help mitigate losses should the market move against you.

Please note however that stop-loss orders are not guaranteed and you may still lose more than your initial margin requirement, for instance if the market ‘gaps’ through your stop level.

Rules to manage your risk:

  1. Plan your trades

    Know your acceptable risk and profit target for each trade
  2. Adjust your stop level

    This will set your risk level, although stops are not guaranteed
  3. Stick to your plan

    Trust your planned entry and exit levels

You can find out more about margin calculations in our FAQs and User Manual.

Losses can exceed deposits

Spread betting and CFD trading are leveraged products and as such carry a high level of risk to your capital which can result in losses greater than your initial deposit. These products may not be suitable for all investors. CFDs are not suitable for pension building and income. Ensure you fully understand all risks involved and seek independent advice if necessary.
