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?

 

Thanks

    • Hi, is anyone else missing Monday's gold data? 27.03.2023.   I messaged IG and the "help"desk guy said 'try reinstalling the app. I did. That did not work.  I have no gold data for Monday 27.03.2023. Not on my phone app, not on my MacBook IG webpage and not on pro realtime. Prorealtime is not even loading up for me on the MacBook Pro.
