Closing Price Discrepancy


PGD

Question

Hello  -  I am presently operating a Demo account.   To-day (03.06.20) I closed a long trade  in the US stock 'Corvel Corp'  by clicking on the 'close' button. The trade was closed at 6384  - But according to the IG chart, the lowest price for this market, during the entire day was 6568     -     so why did my trade close at 6384 ?

Hi, I believe even on the Demo you can suffer Slippage.  This is where the position closes as close to the requested point when you click Close.  If the market is volatile, going up and down in the background, then Slippage is the difference between you pressing Close and the actual Order being executed.

I think. :D

Thanks for your explanation - this does sound correct  - but 184 points is a lot of 'slippage !   I won't be taking off my 'L' plates just yet !

Hi, seems more likely a demo glitch, see below there is a pricing disparity between the live chart and the demo and looking back through both this asset has a very quirky chart which would indicate poor liquidity overall. 

Unfortunately slippage is one of the few things that is not shown on the demo as the demo isn't live and just assumes all orders are always filled at the quoted price.

Thanks for your explanation Casey.  Do you think that 'Slippage' may be avoided in future if I was to enter an equal and opposite trade in the same market  OR place a limit order at the current closing price - or even at a slightly better price to take advantage of the volatility in the market ?  What do you thinks ?

unfortunately slippage can't be avoided because it represents a hole in the order book, quoted prices are the next best on bid/offer, if something has happened to cause many orders to be suddenly pulled then there simply are no prices around the current level and the next best can be a very long way away. But slippage can also work in your favour, it can be positive, IG will enter you at your price 'or better', the problem is when you need to get out of a trade.

    • Q: How can I experience the Fairy Cat metaverse? A: Debuting in January 2023, Fairy Cat is one of the most popular crypto metaverse games. While earlier games (World of Warcraft, League of Legends, Destiny 2) either precede blockchain technology or have not integrated it into their games at all, more recent metaverse iterations - such as FairyCat - integrate metaverse games and blockchain platforms. These so-called "crypto metaverse" games use blockchain technology to achieve encrypted in-game cash, play-to-earn (P2E) and non-fungible tokens (NFT), decentralization and other functionality to bring extraordinary benefits to metaverse games. relevant impact. You don't need to be a crypto expert to play this innovative game, although a little crypto knowledge is helpful to take advantage of all the functionality of FairyCat. Start exploring Fairy Cat: 1. Go to the Fairy Cat website to learn more about the game's currency models, then download the Metamask wallet. 2. Start earning money by opening the game in the Metamask wallet browser. At this point, the game will connect to your wallet account. Don't worry that this game will steal your wallet balance, because it doesn't need your account authorization data, it just needs your wallet data. 3. Once you are in Fairy Cat, you can go through a money transfer tutorial to learn the basic controls. Then you can earn money in the following three methods: Method 1: Adopt a cat to help you find treasures, and you can make profit after selling the treasures. Method 2: Synthesize an LV1 elf cat through 5 elves, and then sell the LV1 elf cat to earn money. This can be understood simply as using 5U to earn 10U (50% probability), and you can buy items to increase the synthesis rate. Method 3: Invite your friends to play the game. After your friends earn money, you can also get commission income. The income is very high.
