Trades Closing automatically

Question

Hi, this has been happening a lot lately.  I've had a small trade running on Centrica PLC.  It's been running overnight.  I never had a Limit in place, but I've woke to find the position Closed.  This has happened too many times now.  What is telling is that the Deal Ticket remembers my last trade and is showing my Stop correctly @ around 10pts, but a Limit of 1.43pts.

I have emailed IG over 1 month ago but have still not received a reply regarding my concerns.   After speaking with @CharlotteIG a couple of weeks ago I have noticed a missed call on my phone.  I have assumed this to be IG, but they have not called back and I have been un-able to get thru on the phone.  While this issue is not what I reported in the email, it is directly related.

This must Stop.  We must find a reason and solution to why this keeps happening.

Hey @nit2wynit

You mentioned that the stops and limits save. Have you tried turning off and back on the the stops and limits setting. Once turned on it should forget both s&l. Then turn it back on, put a trade on with a stop at 10 if that's what you want it to remember and check if the issue still occurs.

Im not sure if this is the issue as I can't look into your account but I would advise emailing us but cc'ing in Kenneth.Fasedemi@ig.com. He works on our trading floor. If you state the issue you're experiancing and a time tomorrow that you're free he will be able to call/ email you back. 

He will be able to look into the account, if it's an easy fix he will be able to call and assist if not he will be able to pass this onto our technical team. 

All the best

Thanks Charlotte, but I've no problem with it remembering the inputs etc. in fact I desire it to trade quickly, but in these recurring instances the Limit is set where I have not input a limit!  I don't ever set limits when placing Long trades.    However, in this instance the Limit stop worked in my favour.   I'll see about sending my emails again as you've suggested.  Thanks.

I've been busy as usual since i started this thread, so I've not had a chance to send the e-mail.

However, today i have a trade running on SIG PLC.  It's been running a few days.  My Stop was at - £10....................I never had a Limit......however, now the Stop doesn't exist...........................it's basically at my Buy price.................???? :O

@CharlotteIG I've pretty much given up now.  Over a year an no phone calls or emails returned.  even today i have a running trade on Velocys Plc.  I can't move my Stop or close the Trade.  I've restarted my machine.  The volume data is missing.  The candles for the day are missing.  

Edit.  Somehow the candles are back.  One minute they're there, the next they're gone.  I've lost too much using this platform.

    • Look Ahead to 02/02/23: ECB, BoE; BT, SHEL, GOOGL, AAPL, AMZN earnings A day after the Fed, the European Central Bank and the Bank of England are expected to raise interest rates. Watch out for live coverage from IG’s Chris Beauchamp and Axel Rudolph. Plus, tech, telco and oil earnings dominate, with reports from BT (BT), Shell (SHEL), Infineon (IFXGn), Apple (AAPL), and Amazon (AMZN).            
    • Charting the Markets: 1 February FTSE 100, DAX 40 and Dow await US Fed decision. And gold jittery ahead of FOMC, as Brent crude and natural gas look at risk of further downside.             This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • As Andrew Bailey and co gear up for their next BoE decision, will it be enough to drive the pound higher against the dollar, or could recession worries return? Source: Bloomberg   Forex Pound sterling Bank GBP/USD Central bank United States dollar  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Tuesday 31 January 2023  What do markets expect from the Bank of England meeting? This Thursday sees the latest Bank of England (BoE) decision. Markets expect the bank to raise UK rates by 50 basis points (bps), a similar amount to the ECB. What is the context? In an interesting reversion to early 2022, when the BoE seemed to lead the way in hawkishness, this week’s crop of central bank meetings points to a Fed rate increase of just 25bps, while Threadneedle Street pushes on with another 50bps hike, as will the European Central Bank. As with most central bank meetings these days, it is the comments around the decision and the voting pattern that will be more important. A more hawkish caucus might emerge, based on the improved (or at least, less bad) economic outlook that has appeared of late. But the outlook for the second half of the year remains gloomy, at best. Markets continue to expect at least one 25bps rate cut by the end of the year, but the bank will not want to give too much credit to this argument, since it is aware that inflation remains solidly above forecasts. GBP/USD outlook Momentum in GBP/USD has stalled at the December highs of $1.24, with little sign that the price wishes to push on ahead of the BoE meeting. Clearly a more hawkish BoE would be needed, but one that is not too hawkish that it then makes markets fret about the impact on the already-tough UK economic outlook. It will be a tough balance to strike, and if markets start to worry about a deeper UK recession, then we could see GPB/USD push back towards $1.20 and the 200-day SMA. Source: ProRealTime
