The medical marijuana market has seen significant changes over the last years, especially in light of the legalisation of cannabis for medical and recreational use in some countries across the globe, and the growing interest in medicinal marijuana products that contain common cannabinoids such as THC or CBD.
Most cannabis and cannabinoid-based biotech firms are engaged in increasing their production capacity and output in order to meet the rising demand for medicinal cannabis products. Companies such as Canopy Growth and Tilray have experienced exponential growth in terms of volume, yet are also highly exposed to volatility and price swings.
Plus500 offers risk management tools which can help you when trading CFDs on cannabis shares. Among these are stop orders that allow you to set a specific rate at which you would like your position to close:
- To protect your profit, use ‘Close at Profit’ order.
- To minimise potential losses, use ‘Close at Loss’ or ‘Trailing Stop’.
- To ensure your position closes at the exact rate you have set, use the ‘Guaranteed Stop’.
Note that Close at Profit and Close at Loss orders do not guarantee your position will close at the exact price level you have specified. When using the ‘Guaranteed Stop’ feature, your trade is subject to a wider spread.
Below is an example of how the Close at Loss order works when trading on a marijuana-related stock CFD:
Aurora Cannabis is trading at $7.60/$7.64 (Sell/Buy) per share. You Buy 500 Aurora Cannabis at $7.64 while placing a Close at Loss order at 7.45. The stock’s Sell price falls instantly to $7.40 and then drops further to $7.10. Your position will close at $7.40, i.e. the closest available rate to your order.
Your position's loss is: 500 * (7.40 - 7.64) = -$120
Had your position closed at the Sell rate of 7.10 without a Close at Loss order, your loss would have been: 500 * (7.10 - 7.64) = -$270
