Why did my trade close automatically in loss !?



I have a demo-account of 5000 GBP. 

I entered below trade 2 days ago, with stoploss just below 100. Trade went very well and I was still in the trade yesterday evening at +200 GBP, but this morning I saw that the trade closed at -250 (my stop loss). At first I thought it could have been due to a margin call (which was low) and that it automatically close a position, but then it should have been just closed where it was (at profit). 

I checked aftermarket hours and apparently there was a big drop to 91 which immediately recovered after that. Is this truly a reaction to news (dividend increase) or is this something on IG side ? e.g. spread increase (enormously) to knock out early traders ? I'm happy this happened in a demo account, cause otherwise I would have been devastated. Any advice on how I can protect myself from these drops ? 

Thank you

    • Well, everyone is entitled to his opinion and has his yardstick for conclusion on his GOAT. Considering awards and personal glory Messi and CR7 top the list but we cannot write off players like Eusebio, Alfredo Di Stefano, Baggio, and George Weah (African GOAT).
