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.

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
