IG and it's random decisions to let you trade

Recommended Posts

Not a day goes by where I am not left perplexed and on the hold for 30-45mins due to IG giving random reasons for not accepting trades, to the point where I feel they are unable to make markets or wilfully do not accept.  

Latest when trying to buy Novavax - "Order too far from last traded price". Odd as a) buy price is exactly the same. b) tried buying the stock for higher than the current share price - still rejected, in fact rejected at any price. 

Surprised if IG will still be here when RH comes to the UK. Utterly devoid of anything redeemable. Anyone know why this might be?

I had the same problem a week ago trying to sell 320 Avon Rubber shares but it would let me sell in blocks of 100 which incurred several times more transaction fees. Strange but it would let me purchase 320 in one block!

 

Tried the phone line but was on hold for over an hour and gave up, not the way to run a business and may go back to HL.

I too daily experience issues trying to place trades in my ISA account. When you find a stock you never know whether its going to be allowed until you try to place the order.

    • In the UK, the median age of death from Covid is: - 81 for men - 85 for women (source: Office For National Statistics, 14 Oct 2020) The average life expectancy in the UK is: - 80 for men - 83 for women. (ZUBY:  @ZubyMusic)   If you take away the 95% aged and moribund you are left with just 1 death/million (Ireland), that's some pandemic 🤔 Meanwhile, short vid on mad teachers fear mongering plus some actual scientific facts, how did we get here?  
    • Dow approaching triple top. Through it and higher, or classic triple top reversal?
    • Hi all, On average are Forex markets more suited to mean reversion strategies than say indices or commodities? And do you choose your market type based on the conditions at the time or do you steer clear of some on purpose? Thanks for your insight
