Gold positions closed automatically

Few minutes ago, my couple  of Gold  positions in the cfd account were closed automatically. I didnt have a stop loss, also have more than enough dollars in the available margin. So, what triggered the close? I have lost close to $900 because of this error from IG. I have emailed the support but no response yet, so I ma reaching out the community.

Hey @Prapti

The potential reasons normally would be: 

Stop loss (as you mentioned you didn't have one so this is eliminated) 

Margin ( Similar to above)

Did you potentially set a working order the opposite direction and select net off? When triggered these will close off your existing positions. 

Unfortunately I can't be account specific so am unable to give you the answer you desire. You can check your account history to see if that give you an insight into why it's close. Otherwise you'll have to wait for our help desk to get back to you. 

Sorry I couldn't help more.

    • In this week’s Trading the Trend, Axel Rudolph FSTA looks at the downward trend of the German DAX, going short on the bounce to 12,300, with a stop-loss at 12,940 and a long-term downside target of 11,500. ig        
    • BRITISH POUND TALKING POINTS: GBP/USD was in a difficult spot earlier in September and the problem has continued to devolve. It’s a negative feedback type situation around the UK and the British Pound with a collapsing currency leading to surging bond yields which led to a BoE intervention effort that’s led to more currency collapse. It’s a painful feedback loop that hasn’t yet stopped. Is there hope on the horizon? And is this a problem that will be relegated to the UK, as it has similar hues to problems being seen in Europe and the United States. The current backdrop is messy as bonds and FX are screaming panic and meanwhile, US equities look relatively calm. I discussed this at-length in yesterday’s webinar. The British Pound collapsed last week, or so we thought, only to open our platforms this week to see what a collapse in a major currency actually looked like. GBP/USD has set a fresh all-time-low and perhaps more disturbingly, in the days since, price hasn’t really rebounded much. Sellers are still hitting the pair and now there’s other dislocations that are taking place.   The UK is faced with a similar problem as Europe and the US with extreme inflation. All three Central Banks were rather calm as inflation built through much of last year but this year, as inflation continued to run-higher even after initial tightening efforts, worry started to show given that central bank efforts were not only unsuccessful but also appearing to bring on even more problems.
