Why would a normal stop not get triggered?


Guest dan

Question

Hi,

I have a Normal stop on a position (Spread Bet: Buy £10.00 per point @ 11.779. Stop: 10.279) for an AIM listed share Ticker=VLS, using the demo account. The "Positions" screen on  platform the shows that the Latest=10.02 and Stop=10.28, yet the stop has not been triggered. I don't understand how this is the correct behaviour. Surely the stop should have been triggered when the Bid/Sell price went below the Stop price?

Can anyone help a newbie understand what may be happening?

Hey, 

Thanks for your post. 

The issue some people have is knowing it's the bid/sell price that they get closed at but I can see you're aware of this. The price is also a lot lower than the stop. 

This seems to be an issue. If you could email us about this our technical team will investigate. 

All the best

    • Sounds like you are looking at the ask price, or the mid price. I don't have access to the 10sec data at that time, but the 1 minute candle had a low at 7947.7. Ask low was 7954.7. So I guess you had a long position; in this case look at the bid price to see what is going on.
    • What really caught my eye about ChatAI is the way it aims to go beyond the limitations of traditional social media platforms. Instead of relying on text-based or voice-based interactions alone, this project is designed to support multimodal communication, allowing users to engage through a variety of formats like text, voice, and images. ChatAI is positioning itself as a revolutionary social application that combines advanced AI capabilities with the power of decentralized technology. The core idea is to open up a new era of social interaction by leveraging cutting-edge natural language processing (NLP) to enable smooth and efficient communication. But it's not just about the technical capabilities - ChatAI also seems to have a strong focus on personalization and continuous learning. The platform is built to continuously optimize its performance based on user data, adapting to individual preferences and enhancing the overall user experience over time. I was really excited to hear the news that the ChatAI (CHATAI) token is now listed on the Bitget cryptocurrency exchange. As someone who is deeply interested in the intersection of artificial intelligence, web3 technology, and social media, this listing feels like a significant milestone for the project.
