Display position size

Question

Hi everyone,

I was entering some positions on my demo account from a list I had open in my excel spreadsheet. The spreadsheet contained the ticker symbols and number of contracts in adjacent columns. As I was selecting tickers from the search list I noted that my intended position size is displayed in the trading box automatically.I hadnt -knowingly- initiated any setting to allow this and found the trading platform to be able to read the list from my spreadsheet and who know what else to be rather intrusive. Can anybody tell me what might have happened and how to avoid this problem?

Thank you

No actually it was the spreadbet demo account platform

I know there is a link between prt and excel but not for IG's platform, check it wasn't just the autofill that remembers your last position size and fills in for new orders, can be turned off in the settings tab on the left hand side of the screen.

    • It would be difficult and the next line of action would be withdrawal of assets to a good alternative exchange or wallet and observe how the whole drama will end 
    • The recent turbulence in the market has resulted in significant losses and liquidations for many traders. While futures trading offers the potential for rapid portfolio growth, it also carries considerable risks, demanding both bravery and a strong belief in technical analysis (TA). However, despite my attempts, futures trading hasn't been my strong suit. Creating a resilient crypto portfolio doesn't necessarily mean diving into high-risk ventures like futures trading. It took me some time to realize that there are alternative, nearly risk-free methods to build a solid portfolio. Yet, the allure of quick profits in crypto often overshadows the patience required for these strategies. Whether you're involved in futures or spot trading, the market's unpredictability can lead to significant losses, as demonstrated by the recent downturn affecting BTC and most altcoins. Many traders found themselves unprepared, lacking sufficient USDT reserves for dollar-cost averaging (DCA) during market recoveries. Nevertheless, there is hope. For those looking to maximize profits while minimizing risks, products such as launchpools, launchpads, or PoolX offer promising opportunities. Available on various top centralized exchanges (CEX), these platforms involve staking assets like USDT, BGB, BNB, or OKB, depending on the exchange. One observation I've noted is that whenever an exchange announces a launchpool or launchpad event, the value of the exchange token tends to soar. This surge is fueled by users eager to participate and earn complimentary tokens. Following the event, participants can benefit from both the acquired tokens and the increased value of the exchange token. This approach has proven successful for me, as evidenced by the recent ENA launchpool event on Bitget. Have you explored similar opportunities in the past? Please feel free to share your experiences.
