Closing Deals Only

Recommended Posts

I found this wrong message when I want to buy some of the Shares. Closing Deals Only!! And the description is "You can only place an order to close the deal in this market". However, it doesn't matter how much you offer even if you want to buy 10% higher it will not work and get same message. It means that you couldn't buy some of the Shares in IG platform and just confuse us by wrong messaging instead of simply tell this Share is not available ! 

It is asking for further help please call Help desk that never works. I wait 2 days at least 30 min. and listen repeated voice ….. and nobody pick the phone and help you.

It's pretty bad, from what I've worked out it's basically all the top gainers, ie all the stocks you would want to trade and I think it's because IG act slightly differently in that any gain from traders comes out of their pockets so they're trying to protect themselves against any large gains you might have from volatile stocks.

What I don't understand on the SB platform is that you get the same message, but there are prices quoted for various futures contracts. I suspect but I maybe wrong that these are reserved for professional clients

I agree that its very frustrating trying to get through to ask the question and I have not seen anything in their training documentation / courses with the meaning of this

Surely the big advantage of SB is the lack of capital gains tax, and yet you are limited with what you can trade on

Very poor in my opinion

    • Most Asian stock indices were little changed on Monday following gains in European and US markets last week as investors are refocusing their minds on interest rates with the US Federal Reserve (Fed) expected to hike its rates by 25 basis points and the European Central Bank (ECB) and Bank of England (BoE) by 50 basis points this week. Major global stock indices are expected to end January higher amid slowing inflation, weakening economic data and mixed corporate earnings in the US which point towards a slower pace of central bank policy tightening. After slow start with German preliminary GDP and Spanish CPI data on Monday, US corporate giants such as Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, Meta Platforms and Exxon Mobil are expected to report earnings later this week.
