Bitcoin settlement


Recommended Posts

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

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
