ISA Accounts - Stop Loss Orders not available on Dollar Denominated ETFs trading on the LSE


ST

Recommended Posts

Anyone who has read my other post on placing a stop loss order will know that I expressed my frustration about not being able to place simple "one cancels the other" orders. I did establish that to place a stop loss order one has got to place a separate "on exchange" sell order. However, after having purchased an ETF this week which is denominated in dollars I was further exasperated to find out that the platform does not even allow one to do this!

 

Any chance of getting this fixed IG?

 

Whilst I am here I would like to mention to the community that if you are considering the purchase of an ETF or even an equity for that matter. I would suggest you bring it up on the platform and try and get a quote for it first to see if it is tradeable. I had been monitoring an ETF for awhile and when I tried to buy I got an error message telling me it was not inside their tax wrapper. Consequently, it took a call to the office and a delay in getting it enabled for trading. I had no doubt it was eligible as it was UCITS directive approved.

Hi , thanks for the post last week.

 

OCO orders and GTC sell orders across all exchanges are still something that we are working on and hope to introduce within the new web trading platform, which should be rolled out in the coming months.  Apologies this is not yet available, but please do keep providing feedback and suggestions as this is the best way we find out about what our clients want and need.

 

Thanks for your patience here!

Thanks for your reply Hannah.

 

I hope you and all the staff at IG had a nice Christmas and likewise to the community here.

 

It's nice to know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. For me, I will not be trading anything which is not denominated in dollars until the new orders are available. This is obviously very restrictive but I have sorted out some ETFs I may trade which are tradeable in GBPs so I will be able to place stops for now. 

 

There are a couple of ETPs which are UCITS compliant which I would like you to add to both the ISA and betting platform. The addition to the betting platform primarily so that I will be able to see a PRT chart:-

 

Boost WTI Oil 2x Leveraged Daily ETP, ticker symbol 2OLI and the short version ticker symbol 2OSI

 

While I'm here, it may be useful for me to mention that I noticed that the ticker symbol on the Boost WTI 3x short Daily ETP was incorrectly listed in PRT charts as 3SOI. The correct symbol is 3OIS, no great shakes just that anyone searching in the charting package by the ticker symbol alone will think it is not available.

 

Thank you all for your work this year and I wish everyone, staff and the community, all the best for the new year.

    • HI,  Please if any IG supporting staff can answer the questions below? 1. in the upcoming AMC/APE vote on 14 March 2023, can shareholder that hold AMC and APE at IG able to make a vote? I also have AMC and APE at IBKR and they did send out a notification to inform me that I can do proxy vote. Will IG do the same? 2. the upcoming vote is to determine APE covert back to AMC then do reverse spilt. Last year after APE issued, IG staff told me that they have to move APE to share dealing account from my ISA account as ISA is not eligible to hold APE (which is completely unbelivable, my APE at AJ Bell and HL are still sitting in ISA account). Anyway, if the conversion and reverse spilt is going to happen, will IG move my APE back to ISA account for the corporate action? Many Thanks
    • The epidemic in recent years has produced profound changes in people's lifestyles, and many of their activities have started to be developed in the virtual world, which plays an important role in promoting the development of the universe of meta. Games, as an important part of the universe of meta, will be the first industry to gain the benefits , but the following conditions are still indispensable for blockchain games to achieve better development.   - Wallets and Exchanges. Through the use of wallets, game users can truly take control of the assets in the game, and exchanges provide a trading platform and liquidity for these game assets NFT, helping users trade and revitalize their game assets. Wallets are a key application for depositing blockchain assets. Currently, wallets such as Metamask are not enough to support the extensive adoption of block games, and wallets will further advance community drive the popularity of blockchain games.  - Game playability. The biggest difference between blockchain games and traditional games is that gamers are also investors. Many blockchain games have gone out of course, treating all users as investors only and forgetting that the essence of making games is to develop high-quality games that users are interested in paying for. If most people play a game just to make money, and no one is ready to pay for it, it becomes a side-scam. The revenue of the participants of the side scam comes from the money of the people who come later, and if there are not enough people who come later, they will not be able to cash in the revenue, leading to the breakdown.  - Speed and performance. A high level of concurrency is the characteristic of game applications, so Wax, Coinan Chain and Polygon, which are public chains with a high level of concurrency and low fees, have attracted a large number of game developers. In the future, with the maturity of technologies such as Ethernet Layer 2 and slice scaling, as well as the maturity of other gaming public chain technologies compatible with EVM, blockchain games will have a better development and operation environment.  - Cross-chain and interaction. Cross-chain and interaction of game assets will be a direction of future development of metaverse games, and blockchain should be connected and accessible like the Internet. The maturity of cross-chain technology in the future will promote the cross-chain transfer of game assets and NFT, and improve the interaction experience of the system                                                                                     The game should maintain the operation of the project by relying on the payment of some users or selling profitable products, just like the new blockchain game Fairy Cat in 2023, which developed diverse gameplay for players and increased the playability of the game, thus got the recognition of many players. Blockchain games need to work hard on game experience and playability. Token economics is essentially just a kind of interest structure , and even good token economics cannot replace the development, operation and profitability of the project itself. It is believed that with the maturity of the above conditions, more and more game developers and investors will enter this industry and together promote the production of some blockchain games with beautiful graphics, first-class experience and high playability.
    • Hello, Is any interest paid on "available" cash (not "margin") in a spread betting account? For example, if I held £10k in an account and had no open positions. The reason for asking is that I understand that proceeds from short sales in a CFD will receive interest (benchmark-2.5%), so was wondering if that applied to all cash, and couldn't find an answer on the web site.   Thanks.
