Yes this!

I missed several important trades that should have happened when I'm in bed at the other side of the world.

This is insane. I'm moving out of IG solely for this reason. Unfortunately it has taken a week so far to transfer my positions to another broker, and in the mean time I still can't place orders without staying awake all night watching the prices.

Absolutely unnecessary. Most other brokers have "profit taker" and "loss stop" which are very basic features. So you can even set your sell price (e.g. at 10x the current price) BEFORE you even place your order to buy them.

With IG, here I am, staying awake all night just watching the prices just so I can place the order. I'm tempted to write a program to do this... but then I'm already transferring out. Hopefully it happens soon because I'm already losing a lot of sleep :(

Also does anyone know if an existing order will get cancelled (when I'm asleep) if the market price gets outside the 20% range? Because that will almost certainly happen many times during a trading day in volatile markets.

    • This is why I think using volatility as an important input is a much better way..... It's not about predicting the markets, it's about proactively preparing for what maybe around the corner. Follow me on twitter for more updates. Took me all night to model that price action and it paid off “ biggly”.    Take care out there  CA  
    • A higher than normal spread generally indicates one of two things, high volatility in the market or low liquidity due to out-of-hours trading. Before news events, or during big shock (Brexit, US Elections), spreads can widen greatly. A low spread means there is a small difference between the bid and the ask price. From google
    • I don't think it would be a problem trading during the weekend. You can trade whenever you want.  I learned how to do it on the cryptoinformator website. The highest income is brought by bitcoin. When looking at the value of the current 55,000 dollars, of course, everyone is thinking about investing in it. Forecasts vary, and many believe that by the end of 2021, they would have surpassed 100,000 dollars. The growth is projected to be based on the fact that real-world payment flow stock markets are still burdened by the current pandemic but is also based on the increasing acceptance of BTC as legal tender ( PayPal is bringing this option, and bitcoin is also coming to Wall Street soon).
