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.

    • 07 February 2023 Spot Gold The price of gold has extended its pullback from overbought territory over the last week and has found some near-term support at the 50-day simple moving average (50MA) (green line). Our preference remains to look for long entry on a bullish price reversal. A bullish reversal might be considered if we can see price closing above the 1875 level, provided that the 50MA is not broken with a price close below. Should the 50MA level be broken and the price reversal not confirm, 1820 becomes the next downside support target from the move. In this scenario we not looking to short gold but would rather be looking for a bullish price reversal closer to this level for long entry once again. Should either of these scenarios manifest we will update our guidance accordingly with resistance targets and stop loss considerations. Source: IG charts       Brent Crude Oil The bearish reversal off the 8770-level guided in our previous note has yielded a significant decline, although fallen short of the 7760-support target. The price now looks to be rebounding from oversold territory. Traders who have been short might consider this an indication to exit their trades. The longer-term trend bias is still considered down and should a bearish price pattern emerge before this level, new short entries might be considered. In this scenario a close above the 8770 level might be used as a stop loss consideration, while targeting a move back towards the support low at 7760 once again. Only on a move / close above the 8770 level would the longer-term trend bias be reassessed, and long trades reconsidered Source: IG charts         Our weekly technical report is compiled by in-house senior market analyst, Shaun Murison.
