Further information

Comply with the security guidelines

Using internet and online banking facilities remains safe so long as a number of elementary security rules are respected. To use 1816, just like any other internet platform, these have to be complied with in order to guarantee the security of your transactions.

There are inherent risks in managing a portfolio online associated with financial market fluctuations. We recommend that you discuss the subject with your personal adviser. He will be able to direct you towards an even distribution of your securities, in the form of a management mandate or an investment fund, for example.
FAQ

What type of limit should I choose when placing an order?

The online trading 1816 platform allows the user to define different order types, with or without limits. An explanation on how they work is provided below.
  • BUY ORDERS

What is a buy order at market?
A buy order at market is an open order (without setting a maximum or minimum price). It has priority over all other types of orders and is used to trade liquid securities. It is usually executed immediately for easily tradable securities.


What is a price limit?
A buy limit order is used when the user decides on a maximum price that he does not wish to exceed to buy a security, over a defined period of time.

For example, the investor decides to buy at a maximum price of CHF 102. The order is placed for a given time and will only be executed if the security price is equal to or below CHF 102.

What does a stop-loss-order signify?
A buy stop-loss-order only triggers an order when the security has reached a certain price.

For example, a person only wants to buy a security if the price reaches CHF 102. He hopes to detect a trend, he thinks that the price of the security will rise and therefore wishes to buy it as from this price which will trigger a market order.

What is a stop limit order?
By selecting the stop limit feature, the order will be triggered if the price of the security reaches a defined threshold, while setting a maximum price that the investor does not wish to exceed.

For example, the 1816 platform user only wants to buy if the security reaches CHF 102 but not if it exceeds CHF 103. Once the order is triggered, it appears in the market as an order with a limit at CHF 103.

What is a Market on close (MOC) order?
The order will be executed at the closing price of the day with potentially better liquidity.

For example, the user of the 1816 platform wants to place an order that will be executed at the closing price of the day of a security. Once the order is triggered, the price corresponds to the closing price.

  • SELL ORDERS

What is a sell order at market?
A sell order at market is an open order (without setting a maximum or minimum price). It has priority over all other types of orders and is used to trade liquid securities. It is usually executed immediately for easily tradable securities.


What is a price limit?
A sell limit order is used when the user decides on a minimum price that he does not wish to exceed to sell a security, over a defined period of time.

For example, the platform user decides not to sell for less than CHF 98. The order is placed for a given time and will only be executed if the share price exceeds CHF 98.

What does a stop-loss-order signify?
A sell stop-loss-order only triggers an order when the security is at an amount lower or equal to the price given.

For example, a person only wants to sell if the security falls to CHF 98 or less. He thinks that it will fall again and wishes to sell before incurring greater losses. From CHF 98, a market order is triggered.

What is a une stop limit order?
By selecting the stop limit feature, the sell order will be triggered if the price of the security reaches a defined threshold, while setting a maximum price at which the user no longer wishes to sell.

For example, the investor wishes to sell only if the security falls to CHF 98 but not below CHF 97. Once the order is triggered, it appears in the market as an order with a limit at CHF 97.

What is a Market on close (MOC) order?
The order will be executed at the closing price of the day with potentially better liquidity.

For example, the user of the 1816 platform wants to place an order that will be executed at the closing price of the day of a security. Once the order is triggered, the price corresponds to the closing price.
