Apple (All Sessions)


MrBR

Question

Hi

I'm currently trying to trade (buy) Apple stock. It's trading all session, I assume pre-market, given the exchange doesn't open for another four or so hours. I'm setting Limit - Day (All sessions) in the buy, and have had my bid well over the current buy price, but it's not executing. I've tried before with JD.com.

I can never seem to purchase an all sessions stock in pre-market. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Are there some other timing issues I'm not aware of? Am I not able to trade in pre-market?

I am having the same problem. Very frustrating.

I contacted ig about it directly once and they said that possibly the stock isn't liquid, or try changing the buy price so it's closer to the current price. The advice didn't seem correct, as the stock was super liquid (apple) and the price passed through my buy price 3 times. This particular time, it executed 45 mins after trying to purchase.

Tried to purchase apple all sessions yesterday premarket and the buy order did not execute, so I gave up and cancelled the order. Missed out on gaining 4% because of this FFS!

Can anyone enlighten us on this issue? Is it just a problem with ig?

    • @CharlotteIG This is not frustration Charlotte, this is absolute anger, rage and fury; I have affected positions that are currently trading at a loss which could easily be in profit in a timescale acceptable to me - in the meantime I pay the associated costs, Saga being a prime example, yet IG are forcing me to take £000's of cash loss through no fault; IG have accepted a commercial contract on which they are now reneging at my significant cost
    • Maybe IG have decided that with such exceptional demand, they don't need to worry about long term clients.  The exceptional mob will not be around for the long haul.  As a result of what IG have done, long term clients may not be around for the long haul either.
    • Charlotte, we keep seeing the message that's it's small caps that have been withdrawn. It isn't.  For example, Hikma has a market cap of £5.2bn and is in the FTSE100. How do we know which other companies IG might decide to do the same to? We are also told that it's due to exceptional client demand. In that case, limit new opening positions (buy and sell). Why should we long-term clients suffer due to this?
