Limit Order and Price Alert services

We want to help you make more informed FX decisions so you can use our foreign exchange services to perform forex transactions when the time is right for you. Both Limit Orders and Price Alerts are available on the phone and through the HSBC FX app.

A Limit Order is an instruction placed to execute a foreign exchange transaction when a specified rate hits. The order will last three months and end if the rate is not met during that time. You can also cancel the order if you change your mind.

A Price Alert is a notification when a specified rate hits. Allowing you to decide whether to execute the transaction.
