Question

Good morning ,

 

can anyone give me some advice on the issue i'm currently having when i place a trade on the German Dax ?

As an example this morning the previous close for yesterday was 15661 and the open this morning was 15651 , the gap wasn't really large enough to encourage a trade but as i am new to trading i decided to try a trade . I put my entry point 2 points above the high of the first 5 minute bare at 15654 , my stop/loss 52 points away from my entry point and when i attempted to put my exit point in ( 2 points before the previous days close ) i get the message box come up saying - ' Limit level is too far from the current market price ' . I just don't understand where i'm going wrong when indicating my limit/exit point , any help from experienced traders would be very much appreciated , thank you .

Hi Steve,

Is that the error message that you see on your deal ticket?

You might need to put your entry point level at a minimum of 10 points away from the current level

Hi  Arvin , many thanks for your reply on the issues i'm having getting my limit/exit point correct . The deal ticket seems to be accepting my entry point , stop loss okay but when i indicate on the ticket my exit point i get the message come saying ' Limit level is too far from the current market price ' . I have just finished studying John Pipers spread betting course and in it he says that your exit point should always be 2 points before the previous days close , but when i do this it gets rejected , i must be doing something wrong .

This morning for example yesterdays close was 15511 , the open this morning was 15574 so that's a good 63 point gap . So as it's an up gap i was looking for trading down , the close didn't however move downwards so no trade as per John Pipers rules . If the first five minute bar had closed in a downward direction i would of put my entry point 2 points below the low of the first five minute bar and my exit 2 points before the previous days close 15513 , do you agree with those calculations ?

Look forward to hearing from you ,

 

Regards , Steve

    • Friday’s fiscal plan unveiled by the UK government has scared off investors and as a result the pound is down heavily across the board. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor explains that while sterling is off today’s lows, it has suffered breaks of support taking the pound down to levels not seen in decades against a basket of currencies.          
    • GBP/USD in 37-year lows, EUR/GBP 2-year highs and EUR/USD fresh 20-year lows GBP/USD slid to its 1985 low and EUR/GBP rallied to a 2-year high following the UK’s fiscal stimulus mini budget while EUR/USD slid to fresh 20-year lows amid Italian far right election outcome.    Axel Rudolph | Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 26 September 2022  EUR/USD drops to new 20-year lows as US dollar scales fresh 2-decade high This year’s slide in EUR/USD has taken it to levels last seen in June 2002 amid the Federal Reserve's (Fed) aggressive monetary tightening policy with market participants expecting another 125-basis point (bp) rate hike over the next couple of meetings, following three consecutive monthly 75bp rate rises which drove the US dollar to two-decade highs. With Italy’s first far right party since Benito Mussolini’s National Fascist Party in the 1920’s on course to win Sunday’s election, the euro is further under pressure. EUR/USD slid by around 4% since last week to fresh 20-year lows, slightly below key support seen between the June 2000 and January 2001 highs and the September 2002 low at $0.9698 to $0.9593 by dropping close to the $0.955 mark. Below it beckons the September 2001 high at $0.9331. Minor resistance can be spotted at the June 2000 high at $0.9698 above which lurks more substantial resistance around the 6 September trough at $0.9865. See an FX opportunity?
    • Market data to trade on Tuesday: China output; US inflation With the dollar remaining so strong, IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at two trend trades that seem to indicate that there is no let-up in direction. USD/CNH is looking likely to break the near-term resistance on expected soft industrial production data in China, then US durable goods is likely to underscore the downward direction of trade for EUR/USD.
