Hi, because you are looking at and trading on IG's nasdaq market.

Yes I know. But NASDAQ should be closed right now? Why are the prices still updating?

The actual nasdaq exchange is closed but IG's nasdaq market is open. The IG market tracks the underlying market and when the underlying is closed uses the underlying futures market to derive prices and so is able to stay open 24/5.

Does that mean I can't execute trades? Is it like an indicative price before the market opens?

yes you can execute trades, as @jlz says, you aren't trading the actual index on the actual exchange but are trading on IG's tracking market, all large brokers do this to provide a continuous trading platform for their clients.

I put in an order and the price went below my order but it didn't get filled. This happened a few times over the span of an hour. Do you know why?

not sure, so it was a buy limit which was below the current price which then went down below your order level but didn't trigger the entry, presuming this was after the US stocks all sessions market opened at 9am (uk).

I'm trying to call them but I've been on hold for 30 mins. Yes so doesn't that mean if the price goes under $525.95 then it should fill? Now it's $521, so it should definitely fill, right?

the blue +1 quantity says you are looking to buy (go long expecting price to rise) and being a limit means the order will trigger as price drops down to the level of your order, so you are expecting price to go down to your order level then reverse back up.

I am not sure if I am pointing to the right hole, but the settlement period is T + 2 days, does that mean that you will get settled in 2 days at that price?  

yeah that's right (on the Share Dealing account, also needs to go through Citibank first) but the problem here  is getting the entry order accepted in the first place.

Now I'm confused. My order should've gone through. I put an order at $524 and now it's $519. Did I put my order in wrong?

So the problem really is that no one is willing to take the other side of the trade for it to be filled. 
Looking at the size it is a bit odd , 1 coin shouldn't be a problem. Like you said , it is better to speak to them.

Are they not saying "you have a better option at 519, your order shouldn't be filled because the market price is better for you, so we don't fill your order".

i'm thinking this is on a cfd account rather than the share dealing account.

I'm on share trading account. It says so on under my name. Am I meant to put a "stop" buy order instead of a "limit" buy order?

no that looks right, that's the share dealing (non-leveraged) account and a buy limit order to buy when price goes DOWN to your order level.

you would use the buy stop order if waiting for price to go UP to your order level.

not sure why you haven't been filled last 2 times, just lucky I guess, if you had bought at 524.95 you would be down about £700 by now.

I just spoke to someone on the phone. I was meant to put Expiry: Day (All sessions). Not Good 'til cancelled. Order went through when I changed the expiry. Wow I would not have guessed that was the problem... I wish the description was better.

    • It's like having an extra pair of eyes watching the market for you. What I appreciate most about the prop firm ea is its reliability. It seems to make smarter decisions based on the strategies I've programmed. I also like how it handles the emotional aspect of trading—removing the human error part is a huge plus. One tip I can share is to spend time customizing the settings to match your trading style. It took me a while to find the right balance, but once I did, my trading performance improved significantly. Have you tried any specific settings or strategies with your prop firm EA that you found particularly effective?
    • WTI Elliott wave analysis  Function - Counter-trend  Mode - Corrective  Structure - Impulse for wave 1 Position - Wave 1 Direction - Wave 1 is still in play Details - Price could currently be in the blue wave ‘iv’ bounce or 2nd sub-wave of blue wave ‘iii’. The two scenarios support an extension lower for as much as the price remains below 81.07. Since April 2024, the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil market has been descending into an impulse wave. This indicates that the recovery from the December 2023 low has likely concluded, and prices may extend lower, potentially falling below that previous low in the coming weeks. The long-term outlook for WTI remains bearish. With medium-term price movements now aligning with this outlook, it might be prudent for buyers to reconsider their positions and switch sides on this commodity.   Analyzing the daily chart, the blue wave X of the primary degree reached its peak at 95 in September 2023. Prior to this, the preceding blue wave W commenced at 130.9 in March 2022 and concluded with a double zigzag structure at 64.56 in March 2023. From the peak at 95, we have been tracking the blue wave Y, which subdivides into an (A)-(B)-(C) zigzag pattern. The high of 87.63 confirmed wave (B), and the current decline is part of wave (C). The impulse wave declining from 87.63 can be identified as wave 1 of (C). This decline has been further detailed on the H4 chart.   On the H4 chart, the price action is currently undergoing an upward correction within blue wave iv of 1. If the price remains below 81.07, we can anticipate further selling pressure, which would complete blue wave v of 1 before a more significant corrective bounce in wave 2 begins. However, if the ongoing minor recovery surpasses 81.07, it would suggest that wave 1 has already concluded, and the price is now in wave 2. The ultimate invalidation point for this analysis is at 87.63; as long as prices remain below this level, sellers should maintain control in the medium term.   To summarize, the WTI crude oil market's recent price movements suggest a continuation of the downtrend initiated in April 2024. The completion of the recovery phase from the December 2023 low, coupled with the formation of an impulse wave, points towards further downside potential. Traders should closely monitor the key levels of 81.07 and 87.63 to confirm the ongoing wave structure and make informed trading decisions. As long as the price stays below 87.63, the bearish outlook remains valid, and sellers are likely to dominate in the medium term.

    • Recently, the comments of the Indian billionaire and Kotak Bank CEO Uday Kotak have thrust the status of the US dollar back into the spotlight. Kotak referred to the dollar as the "biggest financial terrorist of the world," a statement that has sparked widespread controversy. At the same time, the Asia-Pacific markets have experienced some unusual stock fluctuations, with the significant stock of Sony drop drawing particular attention. Ryan Anderson will delve into the implications of the remarks of Kotak, explore the stability of the status of the dollar, and examine its impact on the stock market. Questioning Dollar Hegemony The public description of Kotak on the dollar as a "financial terrorist" has, despite his subsequent attempts to soften the statement, raised questions about dollar hegemony. The position of the dollar as the the primary reserve currency of the world has long been considered a cornerstone of the financial system. However, with shifts in the global economic landscape and adjustments in international political relationships, some countries and individuals have begun to question the dominance of the dollar. Ryan Anderson believes that dollar hegemony gives the United States asymmetric power and advantages, even amounting to financial bullying. The comments of Kotak represent dissatisfaction and doubt about dollar hegemony, reflecting the attention and concern of the international community regarding the status of the dollar. Stability of the Status of the Dollar Ryan Anderson points out that despite the doubts surrounding dollar hegemony, there is currently no clear alternative currency, and the dollar still dominates the global financial system. The position of dollar as the reserve currency of the world has historical and institutional advantages, with the position of the United States in the global economic and financial systems being unshakable. Additionally, the liquidity and stability of the dollar are crucial reasons for its stable status. While some countries and regions are making efforts to promote a diversified reserve currency system, replacing the dollar remains fraught with difficulties and challenges. The Stock Fluctuations of Sony Aside from the questions about dollar hegemony, the unusual stock fluctuations of Sony have also garnered widespread market attention. As one of the blue-chip stocks of Japan, the stock movements of Sony have impacted the entire Japanese stock market and even spread to other Asia-Pacific regions. The rapid decline in the stock price of Sony may be influenced by various factors, including market sentiment, internal company issues, and industry competition. Although the stock volatility of Sony may be a short-term phenomenon, Ryan Anderson advises investors to remain vigilant, adjust their investment strategies promptly, and mitigate investment risks. Despite the remarks of Kotak sparking discussions about the status of the dollar, the dollar still firmly holds its dominant position in the global financial system. Ryan Anderson suggests that investors approach market volatility cautiously, adjust their strategies promptly, and stay attuned to changes in global economic and political dynamics to reduce investment risks. Additionally, investors should remain rational and calm during stock market fluctuations, avoiding excessive influence from market sentiment. Rational investing and long-term holding are key to achieving stable returns.
