Hello everyone,


i’m new to IG and a complete novice to trading.


I know the shares and the amount that I want to invest in.. however the app is confusing me, and i’m worried that if I invest I may some how mess the order up.  

I don't understand the bottom section of the app when ordering;

- Order type (Stop / Limit) 

- When filled (Net off / Force Open)

- Good Till (Cancelled/ Day Time)

- Stop Distance (Points)

- Limit Distance (Points)

I would just like to make a long term investment, monitor the shares myself and sell when i see fit. What should I select, or not select when doing so? 

Also, how can i see or work out my fee’s from that position when I sell, or will this show when doing so? 

Many thanks

It looks as though I may just want a market order, no bells and whistles, just a simple buy now, sell now when instructed. 

Would I just leave the order type unspecified to do this?

    • Dear All, On the September 22 I could not sell Presto automation stock $PRST.  I have reported that to IG helpdesk, had multiple calls etc. It is not obvious where this process is going and I need my refund money ASAP. I have sent the screenshots etc.
