Why can I not sell? Why margin required?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have come from CFD trading on 212. I was always able to hedge my long positions but I find on IG, I cannot hedge anything, as if I cannot sell to hedge. I always see "You cannot sell this market to open". 

I can sell off some of my position (net off) but I cant do a force open. 

When it does allow you to, if wants to use more of my margin, on 212, i could open a sell positon, upto the same size as my buy position without changing my margin. 

Am I missing something here?
