The trend is your friend

Draw your trendline or -channel and instruct NanoTrader to use it as a stop loss. Many traders use trendlines and trendchannels. NanoTrader allows the trader to actively use his trendline or -channel as  the level for a stop order.

These are the advantages for traders:

  • You can use your trendline or -channel as a stop.
  • Your stop order will automatically follow the slope of the trendline or -channel.
  • You can use this function in any time frame and on any instrument.
  • Your position remains open as long as the trend remains intact.

CFDs are complex instruments and come with a high risk of losing money rapidly due to leverage. 66% of retail investor accounts lose money when trading CFDs with this provider. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money.

Futures are complex instruments subject to unpredictable changes in price. They are financial instruments which offer the investor the possibility to use leverage. The use of leverage implies the risk of losing more than the total value of the account.

Investments in digital assets are considered highly speculative investments and are subject to high volatility and therefore may not be suitable for all investors. Each investor should consider carefully, and possibly with external advice, whether digital assets are suitable for them. Make sure you understand any digital asset before you trade it.

Back tested and real past performance do not guarantee future performance. Every investor should make sure, if possible with the help of an advisor, if the Investui service is suitable for his personal situation. All investments carry significant risk. There is no guarantee of profit.
