TMGM(TradeMax) Stop Level | Conditions for Scalping, Stop/Limit Orders

I will explain the stop level of TMGM.

If the stop level is too wide, it will be disadvantageous for traders who aim for profit with small price movements such as scalping.

Stop level is an important factor in forex trading, so please learn about stop level carefully in this article.

What you can learn in this article is,
  • What is Stop level
  • Is the TMGM stop level wide or narrow?
  • How to check the stop level of TMGM
  • How about other broker stop levels?

What is Stop Level

The stop level is the minimum from the current price when placing a limit order or stop order, or when setting a stop loss or take profit at the same time as the order.

It is a price range constraint that indicates how far you must be.


For example, suppose you are trading USDJPY and the current price is 105.00.

Assuming that the stop level is 5.0 pips, the take profit setting must be 5.0 pips or higher, that is, 105.051 or higher when placing a buy order.

In other words, you cannot place an order at a price below 105.50.

This is the same to limit / stop limit orders.

The stop level is uniquely defined by each forex broker, it depends on which broker you use.

Should the stop level be wide or narrow?

It is advantageous to have a narrow stop level rather than a wide one.

For example, we may set additional stop loss or take profit settings for an order that has already been entered, or change the settings.

This is the case when you have an unrealized loss, or when the unrealized profit swells and you are confident that the profit will be fixed to some extent.

Especially when you have an unrealized loss and fortunately the price is returning, you can eliminate the loss if you can close at least at the quoted price (entry price), but if the stop level is wide, you have to close position with loss at a distance from the quoted price, or you have to wait until your position turns positive and you have unrealized gains.

The narrower the stop level, the more advantageous it is because it can be set freely.

Is the stop level of TMGM(TradeMax) wide or narrow?

The stop level of TMGM is zero (0.0pips)!

The stop level is zero in all account types.

Since scalping is not prohibited in TMGM, it is very suitable for trading that takes advantage of the stop level zero and aims for a fine price range in the range market.

However, it should be noted that even though the stop level is zero, there are spreads, so you need to take that into consideration.

Since the spread of TMGM is narrow, it can be said that it is a very advantageous trading condition compared to other forex brokers as a whole.
