Price Action on Market Open


Recommended Posts

Hi.

Just thought I would try this again as I haven't had a response on a previous post. Similar posters have asked the question but not really answered. 

Scenario: Price at pre-market is gapping up with price at £10 just before pre-market closes.  Buy order placed at Market price, to execute on market open. Buy order gets filled on market open for £10.01. Price gaps up immediately as it does when bullish (to say £15) providing a profit on sale. This is from the IG paper trading account. I understand the different types of orders etc, but it is just to confirm that the only reason this order is filled is because it is paper trading, as surely it would not get filled if the market price rises immediately on market open.

Many thanks, any response would be appreciated.

Hi, yes the demo will not show slippage on orders but will just fill automatically, of  course if there is not gap up then the live would be the same as the demo. Gaps is cause by the opening auction which processes pending orders before live trading starts.

    • Simple solution ... Lilith of Assyria  @LilithAssyria Reminder: Russia is fully open: * museums * restaurants * cinemas * theatres * gyms without or capacity limits * schools without /plexiglass or idiotic hybrid   How did Russia stop pandemic?! Simple: no asymptomatic testing beginning of December. That’s it, folks.       .
    • Hahaha, Deliberate misrepresentation of my posts and the persistent forwarding of strawman arguments is outright dishonesty. That's what you do and it is insulting and childish quite frankly. That's the point, you don't challenge anything, 'oh I don't like the NHS data you posted boohoo you must be bad'. FFS grow up. Try this again in intelligible English.  
    • how did you manage to buy those shares in 2 different accounts synced to the same instant. i would imagine the price to change if not. Under the statements, the Past activity report may help with the investigation. i cant think of anything else.
