Issue with amending stop level

Question

Hi all,I'm having problems with changing a stop level on the IG platform using Chrome. When I change it and then click "Set stop" it goes green but then seconds later reverts to the original level. There is no error message at all. It's done this off and on ever since I've used the platform. Anyone else or IG know how to fix this?

Thanks

Yes, I am having the same problem - but when using Firefox. Not all positions impacted - just one of them! So frustrating. Any clues as to what to do?

Problem solved: Logged out. Ran CCleaner. Rebooted. Logged back in - all good now.

No idea but didn't think of using a different browser (I use Chrome). It's a real PITA!

This happens sometimes for me as well, not dependent on browsers as far as I can tell.  It's like your order gets 'fixed' during periods of low liquidity or some such.

Happened to me back to back for a couple of days in February 2019. I sent the video recording of this happening on a live trade and they looked into it.

The trading services team after few days got back to me with the following email

Thanks for your email and the link, this looks like a known lightsreamer issue but your link provides further proof of its existence. Our developers are working on a fix so it is definitely something we would like to resolve.

The email above is dated 12 February 2019, well over a year ago 😐

Ah, a very elegant solution.  No wonder the developers can't be 4rsed to fix the problem properly :)

This happens to me too and I find refreshing the browser session makes the stop move to the right place.

    • not just the FCA, the US CFTC looks to be heading the same way. https://www.financemagnates.com/cryptocurrency/news/coinbase-pro-ends-margin-trading-services/?utm_content=buffer4aede&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer
    • Thanks @CharlotteIG ! That's reassuring. I'm sure IG have already seen this, but someone on twitter linked to this Policy Statement from the FCA, saying that it will come into effect on 6th January: https://www.fca.org.uk/publication/policy/ps20-10.pdf "Prohibiting the sale to retail clients of investment products that reference cryptoassets"  Incidentally the trader  on twitter who linked to that, was commenting on the recent drop in bitcoin  and said "Crypto exchanges started announcing liquidation of UK customer accounts ..not surprising BTC sold off." Best wishes, Cate
