Order closed without reason


Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm having trouble understanding why, when I place two orders, I get a second order closed rather than triggered.

So I have enough in my account with plenty of leverage left to cover any major swing in price.

I start by placing an order 2 pips above the current price, for example, and then a 5 pip target with a high stop loss.
If the trade triggers and then goes in the opposite direction I then wish to recover some of that loss by placing a second trade 2 pips below the current price with a 5 pip target and high stop loss. Once the second trade is triggered, IG just kicks out both trades. 

I'm lost as to why this is occurring as like I say, there is no issue with leverage or account balance.

Same thing happened to me. I booked a loss of over 50$. 

My orders got closed only 2 seconds after I opened it without any reason. 

 

I have the screenshots of it. 

IG needs to reply to me otherwise I will have to go online and let everyone know. I had posted on Guaranteed stop page but they havent approved my post.

Hey, 

Our working orders are force open (meaning we won't use a working order to close of an existing position. 

If you're confused as to why a position was close please reach out to us via email/ call and we can look into this and explain it to you. 

I can't give you the answer on community as it's specific to your account. 

All the best

If you have a limited risk account and have to put guaranteed stops on your position, the market moves and hits your stop you will have to take on that loss and you have to pay the controlled risk premium (CRPREM). 

If you check the stops you set and you don't think the loss is still justified please reach out to us so we can go through it. 

All the best

    • Take 10 minutes to read what actual 'experts' are saying about this latest Ferguson Fiasco and how the testing is currently being done.   ...on the oFPR, I commend to you that you disregard the daily “X thousands of new infections yesterday” headlines. These reports are just not true. These statements assume (if they’ve thought about it at all) that the oFPR is zero, which it certainly isn’t. That value could...    Thread by @MichaelYeadon3 on Thread Reader App – Thread Reader App
