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

    • Here's a catchy tune to have in your head while you 'just buy the fekking dip'.     Push it!
    • Hi RFSmithers, Thanks for the tips... But when I searched for trusted "ECN" broker in Australia for CFD Index trading, IG Market is among the returned result! So with what you suggested and what the search result I got, IG Market seems to be still the one to stick with for CFD Index trading. Please note that, regarding the market trend is to be against your trade or not, from my experience so far, I think it is really up to you on when to enter the trade, for example: - if you enter the trade at the time when the market is flat with no trend, then it is just like you jump into the calm water and then you make the big splash which could be against yourself - if you enter the trade at the time when the market is on trending, where: if you enter against the trend, then you will be eaten alive from there - FULL STOP - Period; however if you enter on riding the trend, then you will be picking up the fruits along the way through...   So with the above, to summarise, it seems to me that (of course - correct me if wrong): 1) IG Market is still the trusted ECN broker in Australia for CFD Index trading 2) A trader needs to know when to enter the trade to ensure s/he to ride on the trend to pick fruits, but not to be eaten alive.   Cheers Victor           What do you think? Cheers.
