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
