CAPEX.com Platform - Trading and Orders

The CAPEX.com platform provides everything you need for trading, including up-to-date account information along with a powerful trading system.

Orders

Any trade operation on the CFD or Exchange Markets can be executed through an order. This is a request to a broker to buy or sell assets. Execution of such an order result in a deal.

The CAPEX.com platform supports all types of trade orders, including market orders, limit and stop orders, as well as Trailing Stop. These four order execution modes are available to meet various trading objectives.

Market orders are used for instant execution. For example, if a trading strategy requires to have a deal that is instantly executed, a trader will be able to execute an operation, only by sending an order. The brokerage company then will execute the order at any price, and by giving such an order, a trader consents to its execution. In contrast, if it is important to enter the market as accurately as possible, a deal can be executed at the price specified in it. If the broker confirms the price, the trade request will be completed immediately.

Pending orders are formed instantly but they can be executed in the future, as soon as the market situation meets the specified condition. For example, with the Buy Stop order, a trader can open long positions on stocks, currencies, or other securities once their price will be higher than the current one. If the trader expects that a security price will rise to a certain level and then will continue the upward movement, then this request can be used.

Stop orders help traders to lock their obtained profits and minimize their losses. These orders are used in combination with market or pending orders, as well as with trade positions. Pending orders are always set at a certain distance from the current price or from the open price of the order.

For example, a trader can place a Buy Stop order and set the Stop Loss level 200 points below the open price. If the prediction for the future growth of a symbol price fails to materialize and the market turns in the opposite direction, then the function will help minimize the losses.

The Stop Loss order can be edited automatically to keep a certain distance from the current price. Trailing Stop is used for "trailing" the Stop Loss to follow the current price if the profit from a position increases. If the price turns in the opposite direction, the level of stop loss will not be changed. In a few words, Trailing Stop will assist to minimize the losses and secure the profits.

Remember that a stop-loss order becomes a market order (executed at the best price available), which may result in significant slippage in volatile market conditions.

Orders can be placed through the instruments window, or straight from the chart of a financial instrument by clicking the Buy or Sell button.

CAPEX.com Platform – Integrated Tools

CAPEX.com platform trading tools

1. Daily Analyst Ratings

One of the most popular tools of the CAPEX.com platform is the Daily Analyst Ratings. Regardless of whether you are a newbie or an experienced trader, browsing through many expert analyses and information to reach a trading decision can be exhausting.

CAPEX.com platform simplifies the process by bringing you the top recommendations for the day, all in one place. Offered by TipRanks, a market leader in ranking financial experts, this tool allows you to check the opinions of top-rated analysts regarding price movements across various assets.

For instance, the tool offers analyst rankings on various stocks, based on their performance, across a scale of 0 to 5 stars.

CAPEX.com platform Daily Analyst Ratings

You can also choose to adjust the rankings over a certain period by going to the "Change" section and checking the analyst ratings, such as initiated, downgraded, upgraded, maintained, or reiterated. With the rankings of top financial analysts at your fingertips, making an informed decision becomes more manageable. Over time, you can also pick your favorite analyst and follow only those who have earned your trust.

By using the data collected from an analyst (ranking, the estimated target price for a company's stock), you can make an informed decision about what you want to trade.

You can then shortlist the stocks that you're interested in and check the recommendations for them across different periods.

When you choose to filter the information, you will be able to see two key features: Analyst Consensus and Average Price Target.

Analysis consensus

This feature brings together data from financial experts from some of the biggest financial institutions in the world, such as JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, and Credit Suisse, who have made recommendations over the past 3 months regarding a specific stock.

Analyst Price Targets

With this, you can check out the quarterly data on target prices expected over the next 12 months offered by the same top financial experts that provide the consensus.

Both these functions will provide you with a good overview of the possible price evolution over a specific timeframe and can help you decide on your trade's direction.

The daily Analyst Rating tool is a great way to learn how to:

  • Ensure an effective risk management strategy by analyzing the opinion of top analysts
  • Decide on whether to open a particular position and manage your funds
  • Take effective positions across different market conditions by analyzing target prices
  • Gain insight into market sentiment. Market sentiment is one of the critical factors that impact the prices of various financial assets. It essentially means that if traders are feeling optimistic or bullish about an asset, they are more likely to buy that asset, driving its price upwards. On the other hand, when traders are feeling bearish about an asset, they are more likely to sell off their investments in that asset, leading to the price dropping.
