What happens if a share spikes in price?

Share trading, especially during volatile periods can be risky. Orders placed during the day in Australia can open with a significantly higher or lower price, if the price is fluctuating.

To help with this, if the price of a share goes up by more than 25% before the market opens, we’ll cancel it and let you know via email.

This helps you to get what you ordered, for the price you expected.

Please note, this will only apply to buy orders, there’s no cap on selling.
