Limit and Stop Entry Orders Plotting in reverse?


Breakstate

Question

So I've done the training but am confused by the Limit and Stop Entry orders as plotted on the IG platform for CFD trading.  In the training, I understand that:

a. if I want to enter a trade to buy a stock at a more favourable price than today (i.e. cheaper than the current price, e.g. 3.32), I can set a limit order.

b. If I want to enter a trade to buy a stock at a LESS favourable than the price today (i.e. more expensive than the current price, e.g. 3.847), I can set a stop order.

So why, when you see the attached screenshot, is the IG platform showing me a Limit order as LESS favourable for a Buy Entry Order (3.847), and MORE favourable for a Stop Order (3.32)?

Isn't this upside down?

    • Hi does anybody know if there are any terms and conditions specific to the use of the Rest API?  In particular is it within the terms and conditions for me to use a third party application to open and manage trades on my account via the Rest and Streaming APIs    
    • ''Why it's almost like these 'vaccines' don't do the one thing vaccines are supposed to do...''  @JamesDelingpole An unvaccinated worker set off an outbreak at a U.S. nursing home where most residents were immunized. - The New York Times (nytimes.com) Reminder (from previous post) that SAGE expect of deaths in next wave 70% will be of those who have been vaccinated. Mostly because of age group but also because of Vaccine Enhanced Disease (also mentioned in a previous post). As in the video directly above, in animal studies in previous attempts to create gene altering vaccines ALL the ferrets died, usually on contact with the wild version of the virus between 3 and 12 months after vaccination which caused a fatal autoimmune response. (cytokine storm, so don't stop taking the vitamin D)   Meanwhile, the FT on India ...   Deaths, covid deaths and context. Data is nothing without context.   And a lookback at just what was possible and what was not? 🤔
