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


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.

    • oh, English can't be your first language either. I read your linked article and it clearly said bars, restaurants, cimemas, concert halls, theatres etc are all open in Moscow.
    • Hate to be the one to break this to you but no one gives a **** what you think (over a hundred views a day). The only reason you reply is out of desperation as you see the facts mount up and overturn your precious pro lockdown point of view and you just can't stand it. Bye
    • Important chart on 'Other' deaths. Horizontal zero is average/normal. Look at cancer (yellow) progressively less deaths since lockdown 1, at this rate it won't be long before there are no cancer deaths at all. But that can't be right, because of lockdown there are far less cancers being diagnosed therefore fewer cancers being treated. So cancer deaths must be going up not down. So where are they all? They have been 'rebranded' and you can guess as to what. Same for the chronic respiratory diseases, bronchitis, emphysema etc, all systematically being rebranded. Strokes and heart disease, the levels are horizontal or slightly up but we know diagnosis is way down and so then are treatments so deaths must be way up.  Covid rebranding is systematic and across the board. If you can't see the sham being perpetrated here you must be blind.
