Gaps

As there price of stock pairs can change while the market is closed, this can result in gaps, where the market opens at a different price than the price it closed at last time it was open.
Due to this, we cannot guarantee stop losses, which means you have to be careful with keeping trades open while the market is closed. It could be liquidated because of a big gap in the opposite direction once market opens. It could also result in a bigger win than you initially planned for, as volatility works on both sides. Please take this into consideration when using high leverage.

Handling of Earnings, Dividends, and Stock Splits

As trading on the price of stocks is a new feature to gTrade, there are limitations on opening trades the day before earnings and dividends. Trades that are already opened will not be affected by this and as always the user will retain control of when they choose to close them.
As we cannot ever edit your trades stock splits will necessitate the creation of a new trading pair - the trader will not lose their open positions, and the price change on the pair opened before the split will continue at the same percentage.
In this event, a new trading pair will be added to the contracts - for instance if GOOGL splits its stock, there will be GOOGL (pre split), and GOOGL_1 (post split) also visible in the contracts. This will be clearly visible in the Pair List page under the Help section. On the website, the newly created pair will then be updated to retain the expected stock name "GOOGL". As traders who opened positions before the split on GOOGL will retain the same expected exposure as those newly opened on GOOGL_1, this will result in a smooth transition.
