PRT inaccurate prices / Minimum Market Distance error


Spook1304

Question

Hi,

I recently signed up to use PRT on my demo account.
I plan to use it with my scalping strategy but have run into an issue with minimum distance.
Either the visual of the ask/bid price is incorrect or its simply forbidden to place an order so close to the current market prices.

I have added an image below to illustrate an example.
I'm trying to place a limit order to buy at a certain level if the market drops and meets my order.
I've put my limit in and tried to move it up and keep getting this error.
My scalping strategy requires fast execution at prices close to the current market and this error is blocking me for the majority of my trades.

Any help appreciated. 

Thanks.

Just to note, on the web platform at the time, the minimum stop was 2 points and the spread was 1 point.

    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
    • Hi kinda interested in your margin problem, I trade very small cap shares in spread bet in both Uk and US, then the margin call is very rare as long as you have enough capital to cover the 80% falls that can occur with odd news. Have worked of Forex a lot and just find it too unstable. Just wondere if ant other person has this method. I would be interested to share ideas.
