Bitcoin settlement

Hello,

 

Im pretty new here. Could someone explain to me why my trade went through I lost $1164.87 my stop on bitcoin was at $10588.43. When you look at the chart the lowest point it got to was $10589.74. My stop was $ over a dollar below the lowest point, does anyone know why the contract was completed? On another note how unlucky was I, the bitcoin drop went down the almost the exact dollar my stop was. If anyone could enlighten me it would be much appreciated.

Thank you,

Thanks for your post. 

Unfortunately the price type and time was covered in your picture. 

If you have a long position on any market you need to check the Bid price on the charts for the closing price. 

If you go back to the chart and check the bid (sell price) you'll be able to see a difference in price at that time. If this still seems incorrect please let us know at helpdesk.au@ig.com. 

Thanks

    • Gold makes fresh #Leg 1 to the downside while electing the MAJOR bearish reversal of 1836.10. The nearest bearish reversals starts at 1814.10 and presents the current trading range.
    • Following on from with the NETW chart above showing the Gartley: Its VITAL for you to take the geometry 1 step further - you can wing it without, but to really nail things down, it would be prudent to understand and KNOW geometrical relationships  I've worked out all the geometrical relationships for all the ratios So for example If a market retraces to a 61.8% level and a ABCD is working out, its highly probable that the CD leg will reach 161.8% of the AB leg from C - that's because 1.618 and 61.8% are linked intrinsically - 61.8% is the INVERSE of 161.8% Take the NETW chart: Price retraced to exactly 50% level - this is NOT a Fib number its ratio related to the SQUARE - from the chart below have a stab in the dark of the number % that 50% is the Inverse of.............................................. That's right 200% - Once you know these ratios, you no longer have to scratch your head wondering why a market does things at certain levels Look how the market reacted once it balanced the prior main retracement of 50% at the 200% level - obviously important! Thought these markets were meant to be random????????????????????????????????????? The expectation would be a rally upwards from that zone THT
    • Hi @Irsa Welcome to the community and thanks for reaching out.   Different types of leveraged products The majority of leveraged trading uses derivative products, meaning you trade an instrument that takes its value from the price of the underlying asset, rather than owning the asset itself. The main leveraged products are: 1. Spread betting (UK only) A bet on the direction in which a market will move, which will earn more profit the more the market moves in your chosen direction – but more loss if it goes the other way.   2. Contracts for difference (CFDs) An agreement with a provider to exchange the difference in price of a particular financial product between the time the position is opened and when it is closed.
