Pre Market price.

Recommended Posts


My CFD limit buy order got filled on market open (paper trading) at a lower price than the pre-market price. I'm assuming that it is because I am paper trading and if trading in a real environment, the price would not get filled as the pre-market price was above this. I would be grateful if anyone can enlighten me on this please. Thank you.

So just to clarify my query by hypothetical example:-

CFD Buy stop limit order placed for 1000 contracts at £5, to execute on market open. Limit of £6, stop of £4.70. Previous day close £4.80.

Premarket price ranging around £8. 

My assumption is that at market open this order would not be filled and the price would be somewhere around the pre-matket price (assuming no surprises of course, for arguments sake), if trading in a live environment.

So in the demo account this order is filled immediately on market open with price gapping to around £9, providing a defined profit. Surely this would not happen if trading live and the order would not be filled.....

Thanks for reading, any feed back would be gratefully received.

    • Don't take this as gospel but I think SMSF's are the same as SIPP's. Which they no longer do. I think doing it through Commsec, ANZ or Nabtrade would be far easier. 
    • Hi - there's nothing wrong with having target level(s) - If it works it works Just remember as in chart 1 above, if the market is going UP then it will create a series of higher lows and higher highs and one can trail the market up by simply using the swing low points - because if the market is trending upwards it ain't going to hit a swing low point until it needs a rest, changes degree or the trend is changing That's a major law of the market (vice versa for it going  down and for sideways ranges overlapping of swings)  The blue dots on chart 1 show you the times the presumed swing low/low didn't work out
