Why am I seeing message: "Closing only: Market unavailable to open"

Recommended Posts

I am quite interested in what is going on in the Bund this morning, fortunately when I attempt to place an order I see the below message:

Closing only: Market unavailable to open

Anybody know why?

Hi this happens with bunds occasionally, you will need to switch to the futures market, see pic below of previous answer to the same question.

Weird, you get it quite a lot but usually only on smaller caps, not large etfs! 

yeah, that was bunds specific, the 2 most common causes for the Closing only are that the market cap for the company has fallen below IG minimum and they will remove it from the platform once all positions are closed 

or,

IG has reach max risk tolerance for the market due to heavy one sided positioning and so are not allowing new positions until some positions have been closed, that might take hours, days, or sometimes even weeks

Yep, this is the reason SB doesn't work too well for me

No, he uses a method that only he can understand.  But you can feel free to pay to watch him jiggle his tallywhacker if you like.

    • Is it possible to trade the MERVAL index on IG?
    • New data from Canada shows that lockdowns aren't so bad after all, well for some of us anyway. So long as they can keep finding replacement drivers to deliver my stuff everything is fine.    
    • I don't actually know too much about the great reset plan and have never looked into it closely but those that have (Prince Charles, Justin Trudeau etc) all remark on what an opportunity Covid-19 is to get the plan moving so I remain suspicious. The covid numbers are unreliable and problematic, if you go into hospital having had a heart attack you will be tested for covid with the PCR test which is know to give a very high number of false positives. If you test positive you go on the covid cases list and the covid admissions list and if you die from the heart attack you will go on the covid deaths list but it may well be you never actually had covid at all. No matter how you count it though the main point is that if there really was a deadly pandemic sweeping the land then total deaths this year would be way up on the average and they just aren't. I have posted data from the UK, Sweden, Ireland and now the US and all show the same thing, the total number of deaths for this year is normal. Also, normal winter pressures mean hospitals always fill up at this time of year, data I've seen so far for this year is not out of the ordinary but no doubt MSM are shouting CASES!!! Best of luck to you too.
