Buy and Sell deals at the same time on the same market

Recommended Posts

When i try to open a second deal on the market in the opposite direction it cancels (or partially cancels) the original deal. So I can have only SELL or only BUY deal on one market. IG help and support had a section about orders and limits where it tells "You can open two separate trades in the same market in the opposite direction. " Could somebody please clarify how to do it so I have two trades in the opposite direction on the same market at one time?

I don't see the force open option under settings on the IG desktop nor do I see it when attempting a new trade or order on my mobile and desktop

I use browser, it is at the bottom of the section "deal" and "order", you can put a new order and select that it is either off-set the existing order ("net off") or add it in ("force open"). I am not sure if it is possible on mobile app.

    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
    • Hi @Mark12 If you are trading shares, you will have the option to place a limit order to sell your existing position. When the market opens, please check if your order level is close to where the market is trading. All the best, OfentseIG
    • We have to wait until Friday to find out if the UK economy skirted a recession.   Richard Snow, foreign exchange analyst at Daily FX, tells IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor that after the third quarter contraction of 0.3%, there is a risk around the incoming data for the fourth quarter. Here he discusses GBP/USD as a trade to go short. But what if GDP comes in slightly higher? Richard says that is likely to be largely academic and that he believes the short trade will prevail.
