This is my first post, so please feel free to let me know if I have put it in the wrong place, etc.
On the IG web platform, when setting up a market order, and setting your stop loss and profit target, there seems to be only the option to do so by “pips away” (or else monetary amount), which can be pretty sloppy if you are putting a trade in after the NY close when the bid/ask spread is high. Is there no way to set the order up from the beginning according to the specific price you want your stop loss and target to sit at rather than in relation to wherever your buy/sell happens to end up? I realize you can go in after executing the order and adjust these, but I would prefer to avoid this extra step with extra potential for making mistakes.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
