Question

Can someone explain the various reasons why The 'spread' for GBP-USD forward contracts would suddenly widen from the usual 2 to a whooping '10' (Ten) without any significant pending Financial news that may usually cause such temporary widening? Iam trully gumsmacked!! because I had short order to to sell at 12225.0 and market traded up to 12228.5  yet, my order was not filled and that was when I realised the spread had been widened to a ridiculous '10'. Luckily I have recorded everything  and I'm hoping someone will come up with a satisfactory answer for the sake of my friends whom I was incidentally trying to introduce to IG.  I looked really really really stupid trying to explain to them the reason I did not get filled on that order . Come to think of it,  I must say I have experienced several other situations where i did not get filled on my orders or taken out of a trade that I should not have lost. Whats going on??

Hi, this isn't right - the gbpusd forward spread isn't normally 2 points but is 9 points plus the spot spread on top (0.9) equals 9.9

    • Compared to other meme tokens, Dogecoin (DOGE) currently acts as the "dark horse." It hasn't yet participated in a significant rally or reached new highs, indicating potential for upward movement. Resistance and Potential Breakthrough Dogecoin price is currently challenging the resistance zone between $0.170 and $0.180. If it successfully breaches this barrier, it could significantly amplify its upward trend, with the next target for buyers at $0.197. Possible Correction and Support Levels In the event of a correction, DOGE is expected to test the support zones at $0.147 to $0.150 and $0.136 to $0.142. SHIB: Poised for Growth For the last two weeks, Shiba Inu (SHIB) has been trading within a wide flat range, fluctuating between the buying zone at $0.0000235–$0.0000241 and the selling zone at $0.0000260–$0.0000270. The token is showing strong potential for growth. Factors Driving SHIB's Potential There are two main factors at play: ongoing enthusiasm for meme tokens and significant interest in the Ethereum blockchain, which hosts Shiba Inu, especially following the recent approval of an ETF. Expected Growth and Targets As a result, Shiba Inu stock is expected to accelerate its growth soon, potentially testing new highs, with an immediate target of $0.0000282. Possible Correction and Support Levels While a corrective scenario is possible, it would likely be a temporary setback within an overall upward trend. Key support zones are currently at $0.0000210–$0.0000225.
