Go Ahead, Make the Trade

Placing a trade order can be nerve-wracking, but with dealCancellation you can cancel a losing trade for a small fee, taking the anxiety of losing that trade out of the equation.

If the fear of losing a deal is holding you back from making a bigger trade, don’t worry, dealCancellation gives you an hour, 3 hour or 6 hour window to reverse it. If you see the markets moving against you, simply cancel the order.
