Longer than "day" order expiry


R-Walker

Question

Is there a way to set an order to not expire at the end of the day? Most other trading platforms (all I've used: Commsec, NAB Trade, even my SMSF with ING) has the ability to set an order with a set price per share and make it last up to a month.

Currently to do something similar would mean login into IG every day and recreating the order from scratch - if you forget, and the price shifts - you miss the sale/buy you wanted. The annoyance of this is compounded as the [very basic] iOS app for IG doesn't let you see what price you had on an expired order.

I'm not a day-trader.

I have the same problem.

I'm on the UK version and trying to set up Limit orders on the LSE.

I only see 'Deal' and 'Alert' options on my platform too (both on app and desktop), same as R-Walker. I have a dealing account and an ISA but no spread betting account.. Would also like to set up expiries of longer than a day, it's painful having to set them up daily when the market opens.. Thx

Here's the same stock in my account - I notice that you're probably in the UK version and with CFD trading - while I'm on the AU version doing Share Trading. Does anyone from IG monitor these forums that can give a definitive answer?

    • Hi does anyone know how to work out the credit received when selling a strangle in the IG platform?
    • @Toppie_Australia If you want to trade crypto use a crypto broker such as FTX and Binance their quite reputable and their margins are hugely smaller than IG. Personally I don't like the Binance platform it's just too confusing to navigate around and their id verification is a nightmare (just don't even go there).  I prefer using the 3commas platform and use the API interface to connect my brokerage accounts.   
    • I think most professional traders have that methodology and mindset its what sets us apart from the rest I don't look at the VIX, as with cycles for you, the VIX isn't of interest to me, done perfectly well without the need for it so far and that won't change going forward
