How To Set Up FX Order Watching Via Mobile

You can set up your online FX order easily with Citi Mobile® App. We will conduct 24-hour buy/sell of your designated currency, when the pre-set criteria are reached.

Step 1: Select currency

Step 2: Set Up An Order

  • "Normal" Order: Buy / sell currencies at your designated FX rate
  • "Stop Limit" Order: Buy / Sell currencies when the market prices fall below or rise above designated FX rate
  • "If Done" Order: An order involving two sequential instructions in which when the first one is executed, then the second instruction becomes activated. The second instruction can be an OCO order.

    3.1 - "If Done" Order: Execute 2 sequential instructions within 1 order

    For example:

    1st instruction: Buy GBP at 9.50
    2nd instruction: Select either to take profit at 9.70 OR stop loss at 9.40

    If 1st instruction is executed, then the 2nd instruction becomes activated


    3.2 - "If Done One-Cancel-the-Other (If Done OCO)" Order: Execute two sequential instructions, with the 2nd instruction being an "OCO" order

    For example:

    1st Instruction: Order GBP at 9.50 

    2nd Instruction: Either sell GBP at 9.70 to take profit OR sell GBP at 9.40 to stop loss

    If 1st instruction is executed, then the 2nd instruction becomes activated
    Execution of either one of the 2nd instruction will automatically cancel the other.

  • "One-Cancel-the-Other (OCO)" Order: Contains two alternative instructions in which the execution of either one will automatically cancel the other

    For example:

    • You have already bought GBP at 9.50 and plan:
    • Either to sell GBP at 9.70 to take profit OR to sell GBP at 9.40 to stop loss

If the spot rate of AUD/HKD is 1 AUD = 7.0990 HKD and you don't want to buy now but want to buy at a lower price, for example when 1 AUD = 7.0500 HKD. Place a "Normal" order to "Buy" AUD at 1 AUD = 7.0500 HKD. The order will be executed when the price of AUD/HKD falls to 1 AUD = 7.0500 HKD. However, the order will expire if the price of AUD/HKD surges after the order is placed.

A "Stop Limit" order can help you to minimize potential losses or to protect unrealized gains at a pre-set level in adverse market conditions. You can place a "Stop Limit" order to "Buy" when the price rises to a specified price or "Sell" when market falls to a specified price. You are holding AUD purchased at 1 AUD = 8.0000 HKD. You assume the current trend is not to your advantage and so prepare to take a position to limit the losses. Place a "Stop Limit" order to "Sell" AUD/HKD by limiting your losses at 1 AUD = 7.0500 HKD. The order will be executed when the price of AUD/HKD falls to 1 AUD = 7.0500 HKD.
