Relying on foreign currencies to fuel your business might leave you feeling exposed. Between suppliers, stock, and workers’ wages... you're all but guaranteed to see currencies bounce beyond your comfort zone. And your control.

You might not have a crystal ball. But you can make sure you won’t be stung with transaction fees or overpay your future exchanges. Here’s how:

Use Limit and Stop Orders to name your price whenever you buy and sell. Automatically exchange your money and tokens, any time. At breakfast, in meetings…even in your sleep. And that means you can keep your eyes on your own finances and off the global markets.
No hidden fees, just great rates you and your finance team are comfortable with (because, hey, you pick them!).

How limit orders work

You need to buy USD, but your margins are tight, and you’re prepared to wait for prices to change. GBP/USD is £1 = $1.21 – but this may move in your favour. So rather than stare at the markets, you place a limit order for £1 = $1.09, which automatically exchanges at this price, or better.

How stop orders work

You still need to buy USD. GBP/USD is £1 = $1.09 and moving higher – becoming less favourable to you. To ‘stop’ the price getting away from you as it rises, you place a stop order at £1 = $1.21 to buy when this price hits and keeps rising. Your final price might be different to this, depending on the markets.
