What am I doing wrong? Errors when placing orders on demo account


Recommended Posts

Hi, I opened up a demo account this week and have been getting to grips with the interface.

I'm largely focusing on US small caps and when I wish to place an order I receive these error messages...

  • "This market may not be sold to open due to stock borrowing restrictions in the underlying market" - does this mean that when I want to place a buy order there is no one selling the stock at the same point for me to buy?
  • "System Error" - no idea what this means...once the error message is cleared the platform continues to operate but I'm unable to place any orders on that particular stock.
  • "This stock is only available for non-leveraged trading" - does this mean that the stock is not supported by IG?

I've tried to place orders on around 10-15 stocks over the past few days and have received a combination of these messages for pretty much all of them.

Can anyone shed any light on this? Is this just due to me wishing to day trade US small cap stocks which may not necessarily be supported by IG?

Thanks

    • Hi, I'm fairly new to the community and I've started out looking into stocks I'm familiar with. One of these is Standard Life Aberdeen PLC (LON: SLA). In the screenshot below you can a general (albeitvery gradual) uptrend on the Daily chart since late-March 2020 which I've highlighted in Green. However, since mid-February 2021 there has been an intra-trend move downwards (highlighted in Red) and these points look set to cross in the coming days. Daily Chart Thoughts My natural bias is towards being bullish on this stock. But I'm waiting to see how the shareprice behaves over the next week. So I'm interested to see what other think on this stock and if there are other factors you think are important to consider?   Have a good weekend anyway folks.
    • process check , mike check , paycheque..... I actually missed this move ... 😅 .... Very hard trying to juggle a 50plus hour week and trading ..... any way here is the follow up from my post on the FTSE from  11-05-2021👇     With the greatest respect to IG INDEX , it's not time to be bearish .... not yet at least..... Here is what the FTSE did a few days later.........  
    • Yeah........ so that happened ...
