IG opened by mistake several short positions instead of shares purchase affecting my whole trading on LUMINAR stock (i don't have a short option , only stock purchase)

Recommended Posts


 I have been trading  intensely on a hot stock -Luminar shares   and whilst  buying additional shares   IG has opened  several short options on the stock , instead of shares purchase by error. 

Has anyone  encountered same issue. That has  disturbed  all my trading and gains  as i didn t know what was happening ( only bought shares, never used short options )   and ...it was time to sell :) . When i was trying t sell  , IG has blocked my LUMINAR options  , that were allready showing wrong information on profit/loss , and after i managed to sell some shares,  IG blocked my account (for 2 days)  when i was trying to  open new positions on Luminar as it was going lower, so  basically  having sold at  a  unkown profit , and after ..not knowing what  value i still had to repurchase and  locked out without any new positions  on a very hot stock-LUMINAR.  

If anyone had similar issues , how did you deal with it ?  how do i recover my losses and how did it go with IG.This has created a lot of stress and  troubles for me , financially and emotionally( lots of phone calls and emails)

    • Market Breakdown | WTI Oil, EURUSD, GBPNZD, EURAUDHere are the updates & outlook for multiple instruments in my watchlist.1️⃣ WTI Oil daily time frame️The market is trading in a long term bearish trend .After the last sharp bearish movement, the market is steadily recovering.Ahead, I see a major horizontal supply area.Probabilities are high, that the next bearish wave will initiate from there.2️⃣ EURUSD daily time frameAfter a breakout of a solid daily resistance, the market is preparing for its retest.Watch carefully the underlined zone and look for buying opportunities from there.3️⃣ EURAUD weekly time frameThe pair is currently approaching a weekly horizontal resistance cluster.Taking into consideration, that the pair is quite overbought, probabilities will be high to see a pullback from that4️⃣ GBPNZD daily time frameThe pair is currently retesting a broken neckline of an ascending triangle . As we discussed earlier, the trend line of a triangle and its neckline compose a contracting buy zone now.Chances will be high that the next bullish wave will initiate quite soon.For Additional confirmation use: Divergence Indicators
    • #CHFJPY: Classic Bearish Setup 🇨🇭🇯🇵   🔻CHFJPY has nicely respected a confluence zone based on a horizontal 4H resistance and a 0.5 retracement of the last bearish impulse.   The price formed a double top pattern on that and broke its neckline.   Probabilities will be high that the pair will drop lower soon. Goals: 141.172 / 140.363
