Thanks for your post. 

Sometimes we get quotes that cause spikes. If no one traded there we don't execute deals off that price. 

If it was a quote but no execution and it makes an anomaly spike our technical team will remove it on the platform shortly after it's happened. 

All the best

Bitcoin is an unstable cryptocurrency, and it`s hard to make predictions about how it will cost next month or next year... Bitcoin's price is so volatile because of speculation. While it's possible to buy physical goods with Bitcoin in some places, the large majority of Bitcoin transactions are still investment-based. ... This buy-sell cycle is what makes Bitcoin's price so volatile.
Indeed, retail traders tend to buy and sell based on emotion and market hype, which can lead to significant swings in bitcoin's price. Retail traders are small investors that buy and sell bitcoin for their personal accounts. You need an fbs broker, to clarify the situation.

What happen if that spike, not seen in any other broker, cost you a stop triggering? and making a loss?

Many other markets show such kind of spikes, what happen if that spike, not seen in any other broker, cost you a stop triggering? and making a loss?

If the spike is incorrect it will not trigger your stops/ limits.

If for any reason the spike does (which is extremely rare), IG would be able to see this and would reinstate the position. 

All the best

    • Hi, I'm also new, have been lurking here for years, so welcome  Most markets are closed during the weekend, but there are weekend contracts on major indices. For crypto, it trades 24/7 like everywhere else, but there is a window form 11pm-12pm UTC on Friday where it is closed as well. Might be for maintenance of the platform.  Hope this helps!

    • CFD stands for contract for difference. A CFD account allows you to take the profit or loss between a buy and sell position (or vice versa if you are short) across a number of different instruments, including shares, forex, commodities and bonds. This means you do not actually purchase the shares, and thus do not pay capital gains tax or stamp duty. All the shares listed under the live accounts are also listed under the demo accounts. That means if the share is not listed under the demo, it also will not be listed under the live account. However, the share you mentioned, NAOV, seems to be listed under the CFD account on my live and demo CFD account, so I am not quite sure what the problem is. I have attached a screenshot below of the ticker.
