Delayed Price Feeds
This is provided for free in all markets. Charges may apply should you wish to subscribe for 'live' prices. View charges here.
Manage your portfolio risk with the use of advanced order types:
- Take Profit or Stop Loss - Set a price for your open positions at which you would like the platform to automatically place an order once that price level is reached, such that you are able to 'Take Profit' or 'Stop loss'.
- One Cancels Other (OCO) - Set a 'Stop Loss' and 'Take Profit' level, and if either one is reached, the other automatically cancels.
- If Done - Set a price to Buy or Short Sell a certain counter, and if this order is done and becomes an open position, your 'Take Profit', 'Stop Loss' or even an 'OCO' becomes active.
All contingent orders are non-guaranteed. In the event of price gaps, your order might not be triggered.

Apart from basic buy/sell orders, KE CFD supports sophisticated order types to assist you in your trading. These include stop loss, take profit, limit, and contingent orders.
Place Stop Loss / Take Profit Contingent Orders
Contingent orders, which are non-guaranteed, are orders that will be generated automatically when specific market conditions are met, such as Stop-Loss Limit Order types.
Users can preset such orders if they are unable to monitor the market throughout the trading day, and limit their downside risk in the event where stock prices are extremely volatile. Email alerts can also be pre-set on various conditions.
Types of contingent orders available:
- Single-level Fixed Contingent Order
- If Done
- One-cancel-other (OCO)
How to Use Stop-Loss Limit Order (Contingent Order)
A stop-loss limit contingent order can be put in place to minimise loss from your open position. Stop-limit orders have a stop price and a limit price. Once the stop price is triggered from a preset condition, the limit order will turn active and release into the market. Similar to a limit order, the contingent order may or may not be filled at the limit price, depending on the liquidity in the market.
CFD Contingent Order Example*
Client buys 10,000 'A' shares at SGD5.00 each.
He intends to cut his loss if the price drops below SGD4.90. He therefore sets up a contingent order to close his position when the stock hits the trigger price of SGD4.90 and sets a limit price (lowest price he is willing to sell) of SGD4.88. This means he is prepared to take a maximum loss of SGD1,200 (SGD5.00 - SGD4.88 × 10,000).
'A' trades at SGD4.90
Contingent order is triggered and order to sell at limit of SGD4.88 will turn active.
Market Price continues to decline
If all 10,000 shares cannot be sold at SGD4.90 due to insufficient buyers, the order will continue to sell down the remaining shares to the limit price of SGD4.88, e.g.
3,000 shares sold at SGD4.90;
Gross loss = (SGD5.00 - SGD4.90 × 3,000) + (SGD5.00 - SGD4.89 × 2,000) + (SGD5.00 - SGD4.88 × 5,000) = SGD1,120
* For simplicity, transaction costs and GST are omitted.
Limitation of Contingent Orders: Non-guaranteed
As our CFDs are based on the Direct Market Access (DMA) model, there is no guarantee of a fill on stop-loss orders. The fill will be subjected to the available market liquidity. Three potential scenarios can happen:
- If there is enough liquidity from SGD4.90 - SGD4.88, the contingent order will be filled.
- If there is not enough liquidity to fill the sell order down to SGD4.88; the contingent order may only be partially filled.
- What if price of 'A' gaps down to SGD4.50?
The contingent order will be triggered. However, as the market price of SGD4.50 is lower than the limit price of SGD4.88, the order will not be filled. The contingent order will continue to remain in the market at SGD4.88. Therefore, he will incur marked-to-market losses amounting to SGD5,000 [(SGD5.00 - SGD4.50) × 10,000] as the position is still open.

What are the electronic trading risks that I need to take note of?
- Live Prices
The speed and quality of your internet connection will affect the performance and accuracy of live prices on our online trading platforms and mobile trading applications. Broadband internet connection is recommended for online trading.
Always keep your internet trading password confidential and change it regularly. Clear your browser’s cache and history after each session so that your account information is removed. You are advised not to use your browser’s “Auto Complete” function to save your User ID and Password as this function stores and lists possible matches from entries that you have typed previously.
- Virus, Spywares and Adwares
Always install the latest anti-virus software and spyware programs on your computer or mobile. Regularly scan your computer or mobile to quarantine and delete any Virus, Spyware or Adware that may be present. Avoid downloading programs and email attachments from suspicious unknown sources.
Phishing is an act of acquiring sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details, by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. It is typically carried out by email or instant messaging, and often directs users to enter details at a website.
NEVER reveal your password to anyone. Be suspicious of any email or instant message asking you to provide sensitive account information. If you receive such emails or instant messages, do not reply or click on the links in the email or instant message.
- Wireless Network
Wireless networking works by sending information over radio waves so it can be more vulnerable to intruders. Here are some ways to keep your wireless network secure:
- Make your own unique and difficult-to-guess Service Set Identifier (SSID).
- Change the default administrator password and username for your router.
In the electronic trading world, you may encounter situations such as being unable to withdraw erroneous orders in time due to the speed of the internet connection, or experience delays in order transmission and confirmation of order execution.
Please contact your Trading Representative or our Customer Service if you require any assistance.
