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?

    • Simple solution ... Lilith of Assyria  @LilithAssyria Reminder: Russia is fully open: * museums * restaurants * cinemas * theatres * gyms without or capacity limits * schools without /plexiglass or idiotic hybrid   How did Russia stop pandemic?! Simple: no asymptomatic testing beginning of December. That’s it, folks.       .
    • Hahaha, Deliberate misrepresentation of my posts and the persistent forwarding of strawman arguments is outright dishonesty. That's what you do and it is insulting and childish quite frankly. That's the point, you don't challenge anything, 'oh I don't like the NHS data you posted boohoo you must be bad'. FFS grow up. Try this again in intelligible English.  
    • how did you manage to buy those shares in 2 different accounts synced to the same instant. i would imagine the price to change if not. Under the statements, the Past activity report may help with the investigation. i cant think of anything else.
